    Gord Downie, Tragically Hip

    Ive been very fortunate to play this long, been a part of a lot of good organizations, played with a lot of great players, so, it means a lot to me. ~ Paul Martin on playing his 800th NHL game, December 2, 2016.

    This is so incredible sad. We knew that Gord Downie had brain cancer, but he was so young and gave so much.

    Loved his music. Sadly, I never got to see him live.

    May he RIP.

    Make that that two Canadians. Sorry to hear, much too young. But I never liked their music. RIP.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    Only learnt about him recently, his song was in the Canadian series "Anne" and I liked it a lot. R.I.P.

    Happened to be in BC at time of his death last week and coverage of it was nonstop on Canadian tv. I'd never heard of him before, but apparently he was regarded as the Elton John of the Great White North.

    Gord Downie Tragically Hip

    A few months ago, in December, Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Shitty news.
