April Wine is still touring with a new drummer luckily I caught one of his last shows a couple of years ago at THE EX. He did a wicked solo for a drummer of 69 years young. Ah Mashmakhan how appropriate - As the Years Go ByGerry Mercer who was president of Monolith drums and the drummer for April Wine retired from April Wine in January 2009 planning to take a year off for travel. I think Monolith had wound down prior to that. http://www.aprilwine.ca/news.php
He stepped down from April Wine at the age of 70. I had no idea till now that Jerry Mercer had retired. He seemed ageless to me, looking about the same in 2006 as he did with Mashmakan circa 1970. Fine drummer, fine career.
