ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One song on the cd as hit home with many people. "When superheroes die" has had a strong impact on people and here is the story behind it. I was inspired to write the song while watching The Incredibles. Carol and I raised three boys so we saw our fair share of animated films and movies together with our kids.

The scene in The Incredibles that caught my attention was the one where Mr. Incredible hacks into Syndrome’s computer and discovers that super heroes were systematically being killed off. At that point I stopped to imagine how empty and cold our world would be if we didn’t have heroes, real or imaginary to believe in. I wrote the song with this thought in mind. The song had only two verses until last year.

On January 28th, 2006 Carol was diagnosed with cancer. Carol’s condition quickly and progressively got worse and as she passed away on April 27th, 2006. In the last few weeks of her life Carol was forced to spend most of her time in our bed because she became so weak physically. She asked me to spend as much time with her as possible which is what I wanted to do and what I did. She also requested that I sing to her. One of the songs that I would sing was, “When super-heroes die”. I told her that she had become my super hero because of how she handled this painful, difficult and scary situation. After Carol passed away I added the third verse to honour and remember her.
This song will make you cry and that's OK I cried a lot and that helped me to go on living my life.

This cd was my way of creating something for my wife that would last forever.
