With the loss of music greats in 2016, I'm somewhat surprised that Gord Downie hasn't been mentioned here.
The Hip make such good music, and put on a good show. Saw them here about 4 years ago, and Gord brought his young son out on stage. With his health news, it makes that memory so much more touching.
Whenever we lose a talented entertainer, we feel such loss, wishing that their talented gift to us did not stop.
For him to give, what can only be described as, a self-sacrificing good-bye tour, leaves me absolutely speechless.
I raise a toast, to Gord Downie and his family.
