Loverboy Singer Releases Canucks Hockey Team Theme
After winning the first three games, the Canucks dropped the next three, only to capture the series with an exciting overtime victory on their home ice, inspiring Reno and his producer Ben Karlstrom on local station Classic Rock 101's top-rated morning program The Bro Jake Show, to come up with "Flying High," a song they hope can carry the home team all the way to their first-ever Stanley Cup.
"It's been a roller coaster of emotions for sure," acknowledged Reno, who says several members of Loverboy are huge ice hockey fans, including drummer Matt Frenette, a Montreal Canadian follower.
Karlstrom came to the studio with the complete song he had written for the team, awaiting only Reno's vocals. "We found an empty room and turned it into an impromptu recording session," said Mike. The result is "Flying High."
"Anything you can do to take it to another level during the playoffs," said Mike. "Hopefully, the song can follow the Canucks all the way to the championship."
Reno premiered the song on air during Monday's broadcast after it was posted on the Vancouver Canucks website at http://video.canucks.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=1184&id=111642. The Canucks are now playing the Nashville Predators in the second round of the playoffs.
