The Tragically Hip

Post by nafod » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:31 pm

Of course all of you Canadians can sit on your hands here...

So googling on McCain's brain cancer, saw story about lead singer of a band with similar, and how they went on one last tour of Canada even though he is ill, and how the whole country of Canada basically shut down and we're even more nice to each other on the day of their last concert. And then I watched youtubes of the band, and crap, they're really good. Been around like 30 years, and I've never heard their music. Huh.

I'd have listened to this on the radio

They appeared on SNL last century, I missed it. Seems like a great live band.

So it's cool to find good music out there, beyond the play lists of corporate radio here in the states. I hope the lead singer kicks his disease in the nuts.

I just downloaded this, to see what the fuss is about:

Got the same album. Bunch of jewels on there, and nothing bad.

Well, the lead singer passed away. Glad I found his music, sorry I never got to see them.
