    His fans are known as Hammer Heads.
    He claims that Kiss and Aerosmith both tried to recruit him as a guitarist, but 'I was too stupid at the time to realize what was going on.'
    In the early 80s, his sales dropped off so fast that he had to sue Polydor Records to force the label to continue releasing his albums.
    He initially had no interest in his Facebook page, letting his wife post as him for the first month.
    At age 12, he was inspired by seeing Jimi Hendrix performing in Ottawa.
    He said about a joint tour with Rainbow (1982), 'I’m a huge Ritchie Blackmore fan, so it was totally bizarre that all of a sudden here I was on a co-headlining tour with one of my biggest influences.'
    He earned a black belt in Isshin Ryu karate.
    A critic said of his live shows, 'There is an energy that is tangible, an enjoyment that is infectious.'
