    Gord Downie, 53, front man for The Tragically Hip and one of the good guy's.

    From a cultural perspective The Tragically Hip produced the most important music of the last 30 years in Canada. If you're not familiar with the band look them up and take a listen.

    RIP Gord, gonna miss ya.

    Thanks all for keeping this going while I've been away.

    This thread is almost getting too much to bear.

    Not a musician, but played the lifestyle of a washed up, drunken one on Trailer Park Boys.

    I don't know if that was actually written for him. I think they all talk like that in Dartmouth (where a lot of it was filmed). A good friend of mine is from Herring Cove, just down the road... give him some Rye and he sounds just like John.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    This breaks my heart. Although he lived a long and rich life, much longer than he had any right to considering his weight problems, the world is a less bright place without him. He truly was both a great musician, and a great New Orleanian.

    It looks as thought 2016 was a really bad year for celebrities. IIRC we lost over 200 last year and so far this year we are only at 81.
