In the 1970s and 80s, Montreal singer-songwriter Gino Vannelli had hit records in Canada and beyond, had won multiple Juno awards, and was among the first homegrown pop music stars.

He talks to Steve Paikin about his humble beginnings, the changes in the Canadian music scene over the decades, and why he finds it important to keep creating and performing.
