Gord2It’s not often in a lifetime that your know you’re about to lose a friend but you can celebrate their career and achievements as an artist and person.

However The Tragically Hip are playing their final concert Saturday night in their hometown Kingston Ontario.

It’s the last one because, as we all well know, lead singer/writer/heart and soul  of the group Gord Downey has been advised his battle with cancer is not winnable.

The boys chose to tour Canada one more time..to wild applause and buckets of tears.

I’m a guy who has made his living with words..To my astonishment, I find it almost impossible to form words about this tragedy..

I just get as teary as everyone else..I even reached out to a friend who knows the band very well..hoping his words would show the way.

So..I’ve left it to the only communication I can understand..The Music.

Six Hip tracks are featured throughout the show..they speak to all of us.

Please enjoy and remember the “the boys”….

Thank you Gord..Hope you can feel the love of an entire country.
