The Sheepdogs on Rolling Stone magazine, Jimmy Fallon and why they won’t be partying with KareemThe Sheepdogs are a gang of four scruffy rockers from Saskatoon who were just voted to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine by fans. The group, who have been performing together since 2006 and play a blues-based throwback style of rock ‘n’ roll, have been on a summer-long rocket ship ride that included a gig  Tuesday on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. We caught up with singer Ewan Currie as he tried to wipe away the three-day hangover that’s been his group’s victory lap through New York.Q The contest is certainly a life-changer. Not only do you get the Rolling Stone cover, but you’re now signed to Atlantic Records. How does your group keep its feet on the ground?A I think people, when they get famous, they lose their creative edge because they spend all their time in limousines and fancy hotels and they’re not down living the life and they forget about regular people. In terms of that, we’re not too worried. This isn’t a band of pretentious a–holes.
