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.
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.RIP John Dunsworth (Jim Lahey)
Not a musician, but played the lifestyle of a washed up, drunken one on Trailer Park Boys.
Guy got to say the greatest lines ever written.
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.Fats Domino, The King of Rock and Roll
