For the second straight episode in as many weeks, I'm doing an episode based around a tribute to a fallen musical hero of mine, and this one is Canadian music legend Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip. Diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2015, the band embarked on a final tour in 2016 as a goodbye and thank you to the friends and fans of the band across Canada, the last show from their hometown of Kingston Ontario Canada was broadcast live on the CBC network for all to see and live through. I was not fortunate to catch them on this tour or any others, but the music lives on in my mind and in my heart. You are Canadian. You love the Tragically Hip. End of story.
Mr. Music Kevin Ganley of course joins me again to express his thoughts and love of the band, as we did with Tom Petty the week prior. Please, leave our musicians on Earth. We are still enjoying them! Take this time and thank your family and loved ones. Nothing is promised, especially our tomorrows
