He was also a music supervisor for films and television, and, in the ’80s, did session work for Steely Dan, Diana Ross, and other major artists. He was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1996. Producer Bob Ezrin told Billboard: “He has had an influence on every kid who picked up a guitar in Canada since he started playing.”
