Colin James Information Continued
Colin James quit school in grade 10 and moved to Vancouver in 1980. While trying to hook up with musicians there, he managed to open for Stevie Ray Vaughan for a show back in Regina. Vaughan was quite impressed with his performance and subsequently took Colin James on the road for several tour dates in the USA.
It was Stevie Ray Vaughan who gave Colin James his stage name. When Colin Munn was being announced in the noisy venues in which they were playing, his name had a tendency to sound like "Colin Mud." It was then that Stevie Ray began to introduce him by his first and middle names.
Colin James guest-starred in an episode of the television program "Corner Gas", a Canadian sitcom based in rural Saskatchewan, in February 2005. The show's theme song, "Not A Lot Going On", was written and performed by Craig Northey and Jesse Valenzuela and Northey is a member of Colin James' band. Colin James continues to be a popular live performer, touring across Canada each year.
