I'm not sure if anyone outside of Canada ever heard of "The Tragically Hip" band. The front-man passed away 2 days ago after a year long battle with brain cancer.
He was a great song writer and it is sad to lose him.

​he was to Canada what steven tyler is to the USA and mick jagger is to Britain
he and the Hip did a cross Canada farewell tour last year as a tribute to us fans ..he wasnt going to let brain cancer
get in his way..he was also a huge hockey fan and his music was played in the dressing rooms and rinks for many years
he will be greatly missed but not forgotten
RIP Gordie

just a foot note..this should be in the death thread?
