I noticed that too. I had always heard that he quit as well.

I notice in Wikipedia it says they wanted him to write lyrics but he was unhappy with that. Maybe that and the health issues led to the split.

Still very interesting in the movie to see all the early footage and places in Ontario where it all started.

Yeah, he actually said it was the first appearance on American TV in a long time. They've been on Canadian TV plenty. Not sure about other countries.
