The Tragically Hip announce that Gord Downie has terminal brain cancer


“A few months ago, in December, Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer”, that’s the news I got this morning after I turned on my phone.  The Tragically Hip made this terrible announcement today via their website , the message also said “So after 30-some years together as The Tragically Hip, thousands of shows, and hundreds of tours…We’ve decided to do another one; this feels like the right thing to do now, for Gord, and for all of us”.

I generally like writing the posts for the blog, but this is one that I down right hated; to find out that someone who you have looked up to and admired as an artist and as a human is suffering has gutted me….. I wish Gord, his family, and the rest of the band Courage at this time.
