CBC reports that Blair MacLean, the last half of the Glace Bay comedy duo MacLean & MacLean passed away Wednesday at the age of 65. Blair died of a heart attack and his brother, Gary, succumbed to throat cancer in 2001.
They produced seven albums of adult-oriented material, including Toilet Rock, Bitter Reality, Take the O Out of Country and Cruel Cuts.
Bitter Reality was produced by Guess Who lead singer Burton Cummings, who they toured with.
Their swearing and use of obscene language made MacLean & MacLean unsuitable for radio play. According to their official website, they appealed to the Supreme Court for the right to perform a song based on Ja-Da (F— Ya), that used obscene language.
The CBC fails to mention their major hit in England, Dolly Parton’s Tits.
