Gord has passed away. :cry:

STATEMENT
October 18, 2017
Last night Gord quietly passed away with his beloved children and family close by.

Gord knew this day was coming – his response was to spend this precious time as he always had – making music, making memories and expressing deep gratitude to his family and friends for a life well lived, often sealing it with a kiss… on the lips.

Gord said he had lived many lives. As a musician, he lived “the life” for over 30 years, lucky to do most of it with his high school buddies. At home, he worked just as tirelessly at being a good father, son, brother, husband and friend. No one worked harder on every part of their life than Gord. No one.

We would like to thank all the kind folks at KGH and Sunnybrook, Gord’s bandmates, management team, friends and fans. Thank you for all the help and support over the past two years.

Thank you everyone for all the respect, admiration and love you have given Gord throughout the years – those tender offerings touched his heart and he takes them with him now as he walks among the stars.

Love you forever Gord.

The Downie Family

Hip marathon has begun with
Long Time Running

Hit me like a ton of bricks this morning, even though it was expected. My marathon started with Small Town Bringdown, I'm going through the whole discography.

I can't explain how much Gord Downie's antics and lyrics influenced me as a human being.

I wasn't able to listen to much Hip today, tomorrow will be different.

Did any of you guy see Long Time Running in theaters? CTV is going to air it Friday. It wasn't supposed to air until November.

I don't know if I could commit to words what the Hip did for me. Gord was from another world.
