MuchMusic VJ Laurie Brown was hesitant about becoming the host of the Power Hour, but eventually took to the gig with passion. In an interview that Laurie looks back on with some disgust, Gene Simmons of KISS describes his philosophy regarding women and what in his mind makes a rock star.
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".
