2006: On set with Jean Paul Trembley/Brian Vollmer

When Archie first brought it to my attention that this new show called “The Trailer Park Boys” had done a skit involving Rush & Helix in the episode “Closer to the Heart” featuring Alex Lifeson from RUSH, I had to check it out.  One thing led to the other and eventually I became email friends with Mike Clattenburg, who produced the show.  I asked Mike if I flew out to Halifax on my own dime, could I come watch them film a show?  He said “yes” and so I flew out.  They sent a limo to the airport to take me to where they were filming for the episode entitled, “I Think You Pissed Yourself Mr. Layhee.”  (this was also the first episode where “Conky” is seen).   The guys were extremely generous and friendly to me and we’re good friends to this day.   Here I am with Jean Paul Trembley who plays Julian on the show.  In his hand the proverbial rum and coke.
