Thread Name: Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
Subject: Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
They put a nice biographical article on the front page of the Orillia Packet & Times today about hometown boy Gordon Lightfoot who reached his 70th birthday today.

I was surprised to read that he did his first Canadian tour in 1967. I had thought he was touring long before that, but apparently not, although he was doing a lot of local performing and TV work from the early 60s on.
