In the mid-80s, heavy metal was at its peak of popularity – and no one did it with more show-biz flair than Dee Snider and his band Twisted Sister. MuchMusic VJ J.D. Roberts found out that interviewing can sometimes be a full-contact sport, and he has the scars to prove it.
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".
