So, one of the first things I hear on the radio is that Gord Downey of the Tragically Hip has terminal brain cancer.
It has been a terrible year. David Bowie, Prince…. while it would be a bit much to include Gord Downey in that group. However, for me, it is much more real. I followed the Hip from the beginning. I’ve seen them in concert a few times. I’ve bought all their CD’s (some even twice after they were stolen in a house break-in–probably the only CD’s I replaced…)
I loved some of those beat poet like rants he went on in concerrt…
This is sounding like a eulogy and they guy isn’t even dead. I just had to put something down because I am going to have to dig hard to find a perfect moment today.
