    Default Gord Downie passed away

    I missed his last concert in my city. Tickets sold out in minutes. He was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer a while ago. You know it was going to happen one day but you just hope it doesn’t. Rip Gord.

    He was a Canadian musician and formed the band The Tragically Hip in 1987 and had a good solo run. Canada's version of "Tom Petty" but a bit more edgy. Unfortunately, they didn't catch on here in the U.S.

    Great documentary on Netflix about the band called Long Time Running. I had never heard about the band until I watched the documentary. It follows their final tour after his diagnosis. Worth a watch.
