It was announced that Gordon Lightfoot has passed away at age 84.

Here is one list of greatest hits ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZsnnvcPuNg

One of my late father's favorites.  Immeasurable then and now.

Did you have a favorite :icon_question:

There are so many. :smile2:

Oh man that dude was legit. Sundown is prob my favorite song from him. I can listen to that a dozen times in a row.

I tell you... as these guys die off, there just arent younger musicians replacing them. I know there are a few like Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift (neither that I listen too) but besides them I do not see any being able to create a legacy that can last decades like some of the stuff we've been blessed to listen to since the 60s. I actually think the greatest decade of music is the 70s even though I had distain for it when I was a kid. It took me a while to realize that everything I listened to in the 80s and 90s had its roots in the 70s whether it was punk, alternative, or metal. I just don't see that happening now. I imagine changes in the music industry have had an impact on that too.
