Now that Smoke is famous, it may be hard to believe that he was once a simple boy, living a simple life, in a simple town with his simple parents.  This presentation of Smoke’s artifacts, graciously on loan from the Smoke Foundation and Museum, will demonstrate Smoke’s past life, while shedding some light on how he became The Man, The Myth, and The Legend!

Mixed Tape – Smoke’s Artifacts

A rare look into Smoke’s softer side, this 1989 mixed tape was made by Smoke shortly after his breakup with Molly Ringwald.  Song 2 side B “Dream Girl” written and performed by Smoke himself, is in fact a tribute to the one that got away….

Car Phone – Smoke’s Artifacts

Smoke’s first car phone!  1986 Car/Mobile phone with 12V battery.    This spiff phone set Smoke back $2000 (about $5800 in today’s buying power).  After buying, Smoke didn’t have enough scratch to maintain his car, so he connected this mobile phone to his 1981 Stump Jumper mountain bike, which started Smoke down the road to Weird, […]

Cassette Tapes – Smoke’s Artifacts

Smoke names Gene Simmons and Kiss as major influencers in his life.  This sampling of Smoke’s personal cassette tape collection, left in his uncle’s car, clearly shows the role Kiss played in his life.  It is rumoured that Smoke and Gene have built a great friendship over the years and some even question whether or […]

Surround Sound Discovery – Smoke’s Artifacts

Many believe that it was Disney that created surround sound in the 1940s.  The truth however, is that true surround sound was created by Smoke himself.  It was this very Boombox that was instrumental in its creation.  It was late September 1987 and Smoke had just purchased two copies of the newest KISS tape, Crazy […]

Playgirl – Smoke’s Artifacts

It is industry knowledge that when David Lee Roth sang, “I’m Just a Gigalo”,  he was referring directly to Smoke.  The majority of the evidence supporting this has been destroyed over the years by Smoke’s overly jealous lady friends…. This single Playgirl, all that remains of that era, was discovered between the mattress and box […]

He-man Action Figures – Smoke’s Artifacts

Video Games – Smoke’s Artifacts

A collection of Smoke’s favourite video games from the early 1980s.  They include Asteroids, Defender, Donkey Kong and of course, Pac-Man.  Smoke would play these games while testing his Poutine creations!  If you look closely you are sure to see grease stains from the double smoked bacon and squeaky cheese curds on the game cartridges!

Molly’s Straw – Smoke’s Artifacts

Everybody has heard the rumours that have been circulating since the Breakfast Club!  Smoke had a short but life-changing romance with Molly Ringwald or a very convincing impersonation artist.  “Molly” used this straw, while sharing a Coke with Smoke, during their first date.  In not so polite circles, it is said, that the straw wasn’t […]

VHS Collection – Smoke’s Artifacts

Smoke attributes the secret to his success on this six movie VHS collection.  He spent many hours watching this collection and used it as a guide throughout his life.  Everything he knows about love and women he learned from Action Jackson.  Rocky himself, not only taught Smoke how to fight, but more importantly, that the […]

Canadian Olympic Hockey Skates – Smoke’s Artifacts

Smoke used these skates while he was the Captain of the Canadian Olympic hockey team from 1972-1976.  He was also featured on the team’s 1974 hockey card; but it was a non Olympic year so it suffered low circulation.  Canada boycotted the Olympics in ’72 & ’76, in protest of strict amateur eligibility requirements.  Unfortunately […]
