RENEGADE (Canada) – The Story Of My Life (Previously Unreleased)

I’m sure you veteran AOR / Melodic Rock fan remember Canadians RENEGADE. The group released two delicious albums in this genre, and finally made available “The Story Of My Life“, previously unreleased recordings.
Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, RENEGADE existed since the early Eighties through various incarnations. Founder and chief songwriter Jim Buckshon went on to play in MATREX (another great, pretty unknown Canadian band) then RENEGADE disbanded.
However the group returned in the mid-’80s again with Buckshon at the helm. Between 1985 / 87 RENEGADE toured the Pacific Northwest area, meanwhile recording several songs in between at various studios. But the band had no luck with the tapes.
Why RENEGADE were not signed by a major label is beyond me, as their sound and style is pure AOR / Melodic Rock in the vein of Honeymoon Suite, Haywire, Worrall, etc…
