We're Here for a Good Time -- Raise a Little Hell -- The Boys in the Bright White Sportscar -- all Canadian anthems -- all recorded by Trooper. The Globe and Mail calls them honest-to-God Canadian legends. The Toronto Sun lauds the ongoing strength of their Boomer/Gen X cachet. They have sold millions of albums, have travelled tens of thousands of miles, and, for thirty years, have borne first-hand witness to an amazing era in popular music: sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll and the long hard road where careers are made and broken. Ra McGuire, Trooper's charismatic leader, singer, and songwriter, still travels that road, performing 100 shows a year from Tofino to Torbay and everywhere in between. Famous for his quick wit and sometimes too-candid stage banter, McGuire has always had a knack for keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. In Here for a Good Time: On the Road with Trooper -- Canada's Legendary Rock Band, he reveals the peaks and valleys of his life on the road and the joys and challenges of being a fifty-something rock star at large in the country he knows like the back of his hand.
