He began extensive touring and performed at Toronto’s CNE with Peter Frampton.

He began releasing English and French albums simultaneously.

He moved to France to help produce for pop star Jacques Higelin, returning to Canada in 1987.

He was chosen as David Bowie’s opening act at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.

Various artists released a tribute album of covers of his songs in 2015.

Dubois began his musical career at age 12 when he joined the country band Les Montagnards. Becoming influenced by ’60s artists, he decided to go solo and released an album in the middle of the decade spawning the award-winning hit “J’ai Souvenir Encore” and “Ma petite vie”.

But their big break came in 1973 with “Lonesome Mary” which cracked the Top 10.

Poppy Family member Terry Jacks (“Seasons in the Sun”) produced Chilliwack’s 1974 album Riding High which spawned the Top 10 hit “Crazy Talk”.

After 1976, however, “Pag” was finding it difficult to maintain success in English Canada and began focusing more on French songs and albums to cater to Quebecers who were bigger fans.
