Sass Jordan, Canada's Queen of Rock
I have such a good fun show for you today with the fabulous Sass Jordan. This episode is really what I hoped all episodes would be like, a fun and casual conversation about life in the arts. It helped that I have known and worked with Sass for many years so I was comfortable. With others, I’m still learning how to build that rapport so it becomes a conversation and less of a question and answer interview.
Anyways for those who do not know Sass Jordan, she is Canada’s Queen of Rock. In her 30 years in the spotlight, she has gotten to work with many of her influences including Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Cheap Trick, Santana, Joe Cocker, Styx, Rodger Hodgson, and countless others. She has won various awards, including Juno and Billboard, and has sold over a million records world-wide.
She also had a short-lived acting career playing Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway hit, Love Janis and as a featured character in the television series Sisters. She tells a hilarious story of how she auditioned for a role on a Die Hard movie and shocked everyone on the set by walking out because she didn’t want to die on screen. And she was one of the judges on Canadian Idol.
