Gord Downie - 1964-2017
Today we all come together and mourn the loss of a truly great Canadian artist. This past summer we had some very special guests in our studio for Canada 150 to talk about their fellow Canadian musicians, Gord Downie was one of them. We quickly pieced together their thoughts on Gord Downie for you in this touching video tribute celebrating his life and his contributions.Posted by boom 97.3 on Wednesday, October 18, 2017
It’s with heavy hearts that we say good-bye to our dear friend Gord Downie.
The voice that made us dance together and sing together. Right across Canada touching the hearts of all Canadians. He made our voice one.
Gord was more than a musician, he was our brother, our friend, our confidant. He was humble, dedicated and fiercely proud. Gord Downie was what every Canadian strives to be. Their best.
Now today, and every day, we get to celebrate his life, his passion for music and this great country.
So let’s not shed a tear but let’s dance together and sing together in honour of our friend.
We love you Gord.
