Just saw this come across my Twitter feed.

Brought so much joy and happiness to so many. And a very proud Canadian.

You will be missed. One of the good ones.

Y2K Dec 31st 1999.
end of the world..allegedly.

place was lit. 99% of the people there were drunk. me and my pal were zoned on some excellent mdma. centered 8 rows back from the stage. very surreal experience. Gordo was stomping on ( red? ) balloons and ranting like a lunatic. par for the course.
nevermind the numerous Molson Park viewings of him.

Canada's Best Frontman. bar none.

I’ve already heard people spouting all manner of partisan loathing on JT for this.

Fuck those people.

Those tears are real. I know. They streamed down my face today too.
I've been a wreck all day. slightly surprised the cops weren't called to my house with the excessive music i've been playing today.
Tears have been the only thing i've done today.

I wrote this last year when we all found out about his diagnosis, some people want to debate it but I stand by these words

Next to Leonard Cohen, Gord Downie is the best Canadian lyricist of all time. The way he uses words to create a visual image is second to none.

Grew up listening to The Hip in Kingston. It's funny you just get so used to it until it's gone.
