Thread Name: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
Subject: RE: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
I had a bar gig last night and, invoking this discussion thread, asked the crowd to reflect on this quintessential Canadian troubador. Then I played "Early Morning Rain" . . . you wouldn't believe how many random people came up to me afterward, so excited to rap about our friend Gord. Many even played frenzied air guitar, invoking the famous strains of Edmund Fitzgerald. Amazing.

hey jeffp, did you go to Bucknell? i'm a bison from '94.
