blueschica Posted May 2 Share Posted May 2 (edited) Gordon Lightfoot has passed away in a Toronto hospital, Monday evening. I always liked his voice- I guess it's a cliche to say it was mellow, but it had a wonderful tone. I remember thinking "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" was kind of depressing, then I got to college and a hall mate's uncle had actually passed away in that accident; it made the song very real to this day. RIP, Gord. You had a beautiful voice. https://variety.com/2023/music/obituaries-people-news/gordon-lightfoot-dead-edmund-fitzgerald-folk-singer-1235600585/ https://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/music/article-gordon-lightfoot-the-canadian-bard-wrote-the-tune-for-a-nations/ Edited May 2 by blueschica 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
