INTERVIEW – Jim Henman #2 April Wine Co-Founder Gets Heavy Dose Of Addiction Reality – Life Lessons
Every interview has at least one. A story that pales everything else that I’m told. A poignant story with fortified meaning that stays with you for a long time.
Jim Henman is co-founder and original bassist and vocalist for April Wine. He left before the band became really big – after only one album. As we stated in part one of this series with Jim ..he left to stay alive. The rock and roll lifestyle nearly killed him. Emotions are strong motivators and Henman got a heavy dose of reality concerning his sobriety while working in his non-rock and roll job.
