Bachman inspires hockey anthem semifinalist

Toronto composer Gerry Mosby was inspired by Randy Bachman to compete in Canada's Hockey Anthem Challenge.

The contest to find new theme music for Hockey Night in Canada was launched June 19 by CBC Sports after it didn't renew the rights to The Hockey Theme, which were subsequently purchased by CTV Inc.

Mosby, a professional writer and musician, heard that Bachman, one of his favourite Canadian artists, planned to submit several entries in the contest, so he followed suit with Ice Warriors.

Mosby's composition was featured Wednesday on The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos, who is offering sneak peeks of the five semifinalists each night.
