Doug and the Slugs


It's hard to believe it's almost been six years since Doug Bennett passed away.  Doug Bennett was lead singer of Doug and the Slugs, a Canadian band that seemed to dominate top 40 radio in these parts in the early 80s.

My top 40 radio station of choice at the time was 680 CFTR and not a day went by that I didn't hear a little Doug and the Slugs.  The big three singles from Doug and the Slugs, if my memory serves me correct, were "Too Bad", "Day By Day" and "Making It Work".

Here they are as we remember a great Canadian band that went virtually unnoticed outside this country.  Pity.

Too Bad

Making It Work

Day By Day
