Another man down

I just heard that Gordon Lightfoot just passed at 84.

Thanks for the music!


A Canadian singer-songwriter legend known worldwide.yep…. Died of natural causes in Toronto hospital. He cancelled all his upcoming tours about a month ago due to health concerns.


Yes, the sun has gone down on one of the best. Truly one of the greats. When I was young rock'n roll freak (says dad) Gordon was my first real intro to melodic folk music. Opened a new world for me. And he was Canadian to boot. Gonna have a long listening session today.


RIP Gordon

He possessed one of those great rolling baritone folkie voices.  A fine guitar player, too. Whenever I pick up my acoustic guitar and do a song, I naturally gravitate to Gordon Lightfoot's style.

There's a very good documentary on his life and work, "If You Could Read My Mind" available on several streaming services. Highly recommended.

The news made me want to put on Old Dan’s Records and just listen a while. Truly one of the greats…
