Town Canadian kid who leaped into a legendary life of popular music — from Punk bands like Problem Child to six-nights-a-week bar gigs with the Rubels and on to his outrageously successful worldwide business creating tribute shows that brought his musical heroes to new life. With tenacity and a never-say-die positive attitude, Bill Culp embarked on an incredible 50-year career, touring the globe and crossing paths with many of the biggest names in Canadian music history. After his performing career collapsed in the wake of pandemic and divorce, Bill Culp found new love, a new Cape Breton home, and a fresh capacity to inspire himself and others.
Have Guitar, Will Travel is a story of joy, love, nostalgia, passion, heartbreak and despair — the makings of great Canadian music — and it is ultimately about redemption and hope for the future.A delightful story of his achievement as Culp inspired others, and himself, to RiseAgain.
