For anyone who is a fan of The Tragically Hip the title of this post should come as no surprise. For the rest of you, sit back as I try to capture the spirit of a Canadian poet, songwriter, musician, wise man and raving lunatic.
I had the great fortune of being offered a ticket to see Gord Downie and his new band The Country of Miracles last night in concert. For the record I am a fan of The Tragically Hip and have been so since I first heard the song Little Bones, off the Road Apples album in the early 90’s. The catchy lyrics and rocking beat lead me to other tracks such as 50 Mission Cap, New Orleans is Sinking
