The Sandcrawler #30-Celebrity Star Wars Collector Cory Churko

We are very happy to bring you a special Sandcrawler this week as we talk to award winning musician and engineer, Cory Churko!  Amongst his many accomplishments as a musician Cory has toured with Kelly Clarkson and Shania Twain and it was during a Shania Twain concert in 2015 that Mike spotted Cory on stage, wearing a Rebel Alliance patch on his sleeve.  After discovering that he was indeed a huge Star Wars fan we had to have him on the show to find out about his fandom and of course, what kind of collector he is. 

Cory shares what it was like growing up with Star Wars as a kid in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in the 70’s and 80’s.  He talks about what it takes to see a new Star Wars movie while on tour and also some of the very unique collectibles that he’s received while touring.  There aren’t too many people that can claim that superstar Kelly Clarkson has added to their Star Wars collection!

Be sure to check out Cory’s band, Toque, which is a Canadian band covering classic Canadian rock.  We at the Sandcrawler especially like the band’s logo.  With all that the fame that has come to Cory as a musician and engineer it was awesome to find out that he’s just like us:  a huge fan of Star Wars and Star Wars collectibles.
