It has been nearly 17 years since the members of Kick Axe stood on a concert stage together, but it's going to happen Sunday night at Buffalo Days when the group joins the Queen City Kids for a Regina classic-rock double bill in Confederation Park. It's impressive when you consider the ladder that three guys from Martin Collegiate -- Langen and the [Brian Gillstrom] brothers, Brian and Larry -- along with guitarist Raymond Arthur Harvey, who is originally from Yorkton, and vocalist George Criston, a native of Milwaukee, actually had to climb to get to the top of the Canadian hard-rock heap. It wasn't long after the release of Vices and the singles "Heavy Metal Shuffle" and "On The Road To Rock" that Kick Axe had hit the road in the U.S. and Canada on high-profile tours with Judas Priest, Scorpions, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Ratt and Helix.
