Further culture shock ensued from the endless suburbia of his Burlington, Ontario, neighbourhood. The shy young outcast turned inward, spending nights writing alone in his room. Then, he discovered a natural talent for music - and his world suddenly opened up with truly endless horizons and seemingly limitless possibilities. A succession of teenage bands ensued, leading to the Spoons, huge concerts, gold records, world travel and a life of adventure across North America Europe, even the Canadian Arctic. This is the story of Gord Deppe and the Spoons - turn the page and enjoy the ride. From a childhood spent moving back and forth between two worlds - Canada and Germany - Deppe became an early outsider-observer, a persona that first crystalized on entering the Canadian school system unable to speak a word of English.
