Must be the only one not on board this feels train. 

Hate the band's music, don't understand why he's such a huge Canadian icon at all, but cancer sucks in general.

 

More people should be immortalizing Stan Rogers than the Hip IMO.

i still remember the morning the news hit

 

i was walking outside of the cbc radio building downtown when a journalist approached me

 

she asked if i had heard gord passed

 

i said yeah

 

then she asked me if his music meant anything to me and if i'd be willing to speak a bit on it

 

and i said i wasn't a fan of his/didn't know anything about him and went on my way

 

actually a true story

Can't we love both of them ?  I love all the colors of smarties in the smartie box....

Like them or not you were going to hear them on the radio lol.  Nautical Disaster was my favorite and I love playing it at the beach starring at the ocean.  The vocals are tough for me though, some singers I find it really hard to mimic and he's one of them.
