Last week delivered devastating news for the music world, yet again.
Gord Downie, lead singer and songwriter of the iconic Canadian rock band, The Tragically Hip, announced he has terminal brain cancer. He is 52, married and with four children.
I cried upon hearing the news. I knew of a friend who died from the same type of cancer. Life can be so unfair it makes me want to scream at times.
Despite the diagnosis, the band has announced it will do one more Canadian tour following the release of their new album Man Machine Poem dropping June 17. Tickets go on sale shortly.
I’ve been listening to their music and will feature them over the coming weeks.
This is my favorite.
