It’s hard to describe Gwar – the science fiction, blood and violence-fueled hardcore metal music – if you haven’t experienced one of their shows yourself, and how it can also be very funny, if you like that sort of thing. VJ Angela Dohrmann had a first-hand encounter with the band on the street outside the MuchMusic studio.
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".
