  • RIP Gord Downie

    Gord Downie, the Tragically Hip frontman who united a diverse array of music lovers with his commanding stage presence and Canadiana-laced lyrics, has died.

    ​Gord was only 53 years old and died of brain cancer.

    Last year, when it was known that he was dying, the Tragically Hip did a final tour and the last show was televised live across Canada. It was a profound experience where music and love united the entire country.
    "Isn't it a pity, isn't it a shame,
    how we break each other's hearts
    and cause each other pain"

        I was not a big fan, hence I never knew his name. But I certainly never DISliked Tragically Hip. They did some really cool stuff.

        Yet it always sorrows me to hear the passing of those younger than myself.

        RIP, Gord.

          I've heard some of their stuff, but I really wasn't that familiar with the band.

          From everything I read, the guy was truly an inspiration. R.I.P.
