A Conversation With Tom Cochrane

It was 1994, and I was packing up and heading to Europe to spend 6 months backpacking and finding myself. As an 18-year-old Canadian I proudly donned the Canadian Flag on my bag and trekked the European countryside with only two cassette tapes to keep me company. Both were Canadian albums of course, as I couldn’t imagine not having a piece of Canadiana with me as I made memories that have lasted a lifetime. One of those cassettes was Mad Mad World by Tom Cochrane.
