“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to Gord’s family, friends, bandmates and crew members, and his many, many fans. He will be sorely missed.” J.T.

Rest in piece Gord, you will be missed.

Have had the pleasure of seeing the Hip in concert and will never forget.

RIP Gord you were one of the great ones. To all who haven’t experienced Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip Tidal has all of the albums. I highly recommend starting with Yer Favourites.
Gord went out with class and dignity. A great man, a great Canadian.Image1508418305.317830.jpg
