Thread Name: Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
Subject: RE: Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORDON LIGHTFOOT!!! He has been my favorite since 1971 and I have had the extreme fortune of seeing him perform live 12 times in both NY state and Toronto. He has given the world such beautiful music for so very long. He has really enriched and blessed all of our lives with his talent. I even had the opportunity of meeting him after a concert in Canandaigua, NY at the Finger Lakes College. My favorite songs include The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald and If I Could Read Your Mind, although I truly cherish each and every one of his songs. I have made a large investment of his records, tapes and CDs as well as other fan items. It has been the best investment that I have ever made. He is one of the greatest artists that has ever lived. I thank God for him and his fine band. Thank you Gordon for giving so much of your heart and soul to so many all of your life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
