From a childhood spent moving back and forth between two worlds Canada and Germany Gord Deppe became an early outsider-observer, a persona that first crystalized on entering the Canadian school system unable to speak a word of English. 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, iconic videos, world travel and a life of adventure across Canada, the US, Europe and beyond with one of the worlds top bands.
