He's a badass. Who else kills monsters with a crowbar and doesn't say a damn thing?

Lightfoot gets a thread about twice a month.



I prefer the Miley threads.

Saw him doing an interview on TV just the other night. Looked like he was wasting away or had teh aids. I, too, enjoyed his music back in the day......

Hey, the guy likes Gordon Lightfoot.
My favorite line from that song is, "Fellas it's been good to know ya". I just started appreciating his music a couple years
ago when I was looking for this song. I made a Pandora Gordon Lightfoot channel to find it. After listening to fifteen
other songs of his before I got to this one, I thought "this guys good". I want to get a greatest hits CD.

One of the things my father left to me when he passed was a hell of a music collection.

I appreciate it every chance I get.

He's old, and decades of hard boozing and lots of pills have taken their toll.

When I saw him at Massey Hall in '91, he put on a hell of a show.

Just him and his guitars. It was awesome.

His version of 'Me and Bobby McGee' is excellent.

I hear his music and I immediately think about summer vacations, driving to Kalkaska MI in the back of our family's Econoline, Gordon Lightfoot's Greatest Hits playing on the 8-Track.

He is going to be here in El Paso in January
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 3:07:26 PM EST


This song seems even more appropriate for him at that point in his life, than it did back in '74


Link Posted: 12/11/2013 3:07:48 PM EST
Not to familiar with 'ol Gordon Lightfoot but I will be. I need to get some of his music. I saw a piece about him on a CBS Sunday morning show and now I want to listen to his music.

Not my style of music, but I get an ear worm when I hear Edmund Fitzgerald.

Hell, he's 75 for Chrisssake!
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 3:54:18 PM EST
Saw him in '72 . At the top of his game he was . One of the best shows I've seen . It's tough seeing him in such rough shape but all things considered
he's lucky to still be w/us . He lived in an era of ultra-talented people , him included .

The race car driver? Was a Cup driver when I was a little boy.

THIS for sure. My dad passed away at 70, and probably didn't party half as hard as Gordon. God bless him.
