Twisted Rock Starz Presents An Evening with Greg Godovitz: Upclose and Uncomfortable with special guests Baker Kanewith

Greg's early musical career began in 1964 and included stints in The Wanderers, The Pretty Ones (with future songwriting greats Ed and Brian Pilling), The Backdoor Blues Band, The Pyggs, Sherman and Peabody, The Mushroom Castle (with future songwriting legend Eddie Schwartz), but his recording career began when he hooked up once again with Brian and Ed Pilling in Fludd which yielded a number of top ten Canadian hits including Cousin Mary, Turned 21, I Held Out, What An Animal and Brother And Me.

In 1974 Greg formed Goddo with drummer Marty Morin and guitarist Gino Scarpelli. In 1975 drummer Doug Inglis came aboard and the group would quickly become one of Canada's biggest and most controversial rock trios. Recording eleven albums during their career would produce many classic rock staples including Pretty Bad Boy, Under My Hat, Sweet Thing, So Walk On and O Carole (Kiss My Whip).

Not content with just recording his music, Greg would eventually release a DVD entitled Up Close And Uncomfortable (2005) which featured three hours of story telling and songs recorded on acoustic guitar at Hugh's Room in Toronto.
In recent years Greg has been kept busy performing with the likes of Ronnie Hawkins, as well as producing his annual John Lennon tribute with artists such as Alannah Myles, Lawrence Gowan, Stephen Fearing and Murray McLauchlan.

From 2006-2008 Greg co-hosted and produced Rock Talk for Newstalk 1010 CFRB in Toronto. During this time Greg interviewed the likes of Eric Burdon, Meat Loaf, Alice Cooper, Pattie Boyd Harrison, Steve Lukather, Roger McGuinn and countless other rock and roll legends.

In 2010 Greg continues to perform with Gino and Doug in Goddo and fans worldwide are looking forward to the television documentary In Goddo We Trust with multi-DVD release scheduled for spring 2011.
