Sinopsis:

They are all legendary entertainers who made stops in Vancouver, BC, leaving flakes of stardust behind. A wonderful horde of showbiz lore has accumulated over the decades but has been jealously guarded by industry insiders. For example, Coquitlam's Steelhead Lodge, a secluded fishing retreat, was frequented by the likes of Clark Gable and Kim Novak, whose surnames grace street signs in the neighbourhood to this day. Celebrated stage and screen star Sarah Bernhardt also came for the fishing, while African-American opera singer Marian Anderson loved attending hockey games. Comedians Jack Benny and Dick Martin met their future wives in Vancouver, and swashbuckling actor Errol Flynn met his maker. As Canada's first rock 'n' roll DJ, Red Robinson was a spirited and essential fixture of Vancouver's golden age of entertainment, meeting and befriending an all-star lineup of the twentieth century's top performers, and amassing a brilliant collection of photographs along the way. Backstage Vancouver collects these rarely seen photographs for the first time, and presents them in a breathtaking pictorial hardcover.

About the Author:

Author and award-winning writer Greg Potter has covered pop culture since 1988 for publications including the Vancouver Sun, the Georgia Straight, the Vancouver Courier, Vancouver Magazine and TV Week. His first book, 1999's Hand Me Down World: The Canadian Pop-Rock Paradox, was a slapstick look at the evolution of the Canadian music industry. He plays guitar for folk-rockers Downland.

Red Robinson was instrumental in introducing Canada to rock 'n' roll, starting out in high school as a disc jockey for CJOR radio in Vancouver. He later worked for CKWX, KGW-Television in Portland, Oregon, as well as C-ISL and C-FUN, becoming a wildly popular celebrity in his own right and a true Vancouver icon. He was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 2000 and the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame in 1997. He lives in Langley, British Columbia.
