Crackers

Broken Up - Confirmed: May. 7, 2019 (Archived)

from Vancouver BC

The band was called “Crackers.” It’s a very old faded photo but in the front row far right playing the white Bass is a guy named Charley. On the far left playing a Gibson Les Paul that I’m pretty sure he still has to this day is Gord. In the middle with the long hair clapping while singing...that’s me...I was the lead singer and didn’t play an instrument in that band. On rhyme guitar was Ernie Larochelle but he’s not seen in the photo. By Wayne Forseth

Wayne was born in Vancouver and grew up in East Vancouver. Was lead singer in a band called Crackers from 1969 to 1973. The next band he joined was called Backstreet and he was the bass player in that band in the late 70's.
In 1980 he starting working full time at Long & McQuade Music in Vancouver. In 1984 he was promoted to Manager and transfered to the Victoria Long & McQuade to manage that location. After 24 years as Manager he was then promoted to BC District Manager which is his current position.
