Chilliwack - They were formed by guitarist Bill Henderson in 1971 and they were one of the first Canadian bands to receive recognition outside their home country, with their music ranging from soft, melodic country rock to balls-to-the-wall hard rock.Henderson and drummer Brian " too loud " Macleod went on to form Headpins with the seriously hot Darby Mills in 1982 when Chilliwack was inactive following an impasse with their record company. Headpins was a fairly successful band, no doubt helped by the fact that Darby Mills was quite an attraction herself, not to mention a very good vocalist. The featured track was also released on a Headpins album, giving it the Mills treatment!
