The 'High Class' lineup of Max Webster reunited for one final gig in 2007, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Q107, the rock radio station where Kim was a DJ. Tickets could only be obtained by calling into the station.

They used Frank Zappa's Peaches en Regalia as their entrance music, as this is a song they opened with in their early days.

Gary McCracken came to the front of the stage to sing A Million Vacations, and during the guitar solo he grabbed a fishing pole and cast out a toy fish into the audience (his tech, Robert Sibony, played drums). Peter Fredette came out to sing Geddy Lee's parts in Battle Scar.

The poster seen below was drawn by Toronto artist Steve Houston.

Other Bands on the Bill:

The Salads, Goddo, Honeymoon Suite, Sass Jordan, Alannah Myles, David Wilcox


The bulk of these photos were taken by Donald Gadziola, Stacy Anderson, and Dave Watt.
