Loverboy singer finds new hit with Canucks
As the lead singer of popular 80's group, Loverboy, Mike Reno has enjoyed top-ten singles, best-selling albums, sold-out arenas, and every other rock-star perk. He never expected that writing a theme song for a Stanley-Cup contender would someday become part of the deal. A longtime Canucks fan, Reno has added a chapter to his music career with "Flying High," a new song that may have become his latest hit, at least within the confines of Rogers Arena.

The host of "The Bro Jake Show" on Vancouver's Classic Rock 101 radio station, Reno was inspired to write the song after Vancouver's stirring seven-game series win over Chicago. The song was then quickly posted on the Canucks' web site and has since become part of the team's playoff push. "Hopefully, the song can follow the Canucks all the way to the championship," says Reno. "You never know. We might just play it in concert. Why not?"

"Flying High" can be heard here.
Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
