When Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor of Duran Duran came to MuchMusic, chaos reigned as the Duranies crammed the street outside the MuchMusic studios. Inside was its own kind of crazy as MuchMusic VJ Erica Ehm passed along viewer questions and talked to the guys about meeting models among other hot topics. There’d also been a recent departure from the band.
In 1984, Christopher Ward helped launch Muchmusic as Canada's first VJ. A former Second City Touring Company member and acclaimed songwriter, Ward has written for Diana Ross, Hilary Duff, The Backstreet Boys and many others. Ward received the 1990 Songwriter of the Year JUNO Award for Alannah Myles’ hit, "Black Velvet".
