Episode 361 – Part One with Darrell Dwarf Millar

The Killer Dwarfs were one of the founders of hard rock in Canada, at the forefront of video with MuchMusic and MTV. As innovative as they were with their videos, their connection to the fans is second to none. In this special episode, we bring in Corey Toews from the Geekspin Podcast.

After some introductions we dig into the Monster Of Rock Cruise and the hoops everyone had to jump through (5:06). Darrell recollects on when they played with Skid Row and Pantera at the verge of a musical landscape change (20:18), the Dwarfs taking a break around that time, going to California and his band Laidlaw (27:08).

(35:22) The Killer Dwarfs’ Discography is an impressive one. We talked about the catalogue, and some of the inside baseball on it.

We had a lot more to cover, but we are ending this episode here. Be back next week for the second half of our conversation.

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
