There’s no simple explanation for anything important any of us do- To some a song, to some a feeling, to others an experience, to all a voice. You have left a hole in our country’s hearts... #ripgorddownie#travelbugs01
I can't let this day pass without honouring this man right here...
"The place of honour that Mr.Downie occupies in Canadas national imagination has no parallel in the United States. Imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Michael Stipe combined in to one sensitive, oblique poet-philosopher, and you're getting close. The Tragically Hip's music helped us understand each other, while capturing the complexity and vastness of the place we call home." - NewYorkTimes Obituary -- this man fought the good fight, RIP Gord Downie #rip#gorddownie#canada
Still doesn't seem real.....been listening to this man my whole life...his words helped shape the way I view this amazing world. Inspiration just doesn't say enough....you were always "ahead by a century" thank you for everything Gord. #RIP#gonebutneverforgotten#tragicallyhip
