Tragically Hip singer Gord Downie has died at 53
Canadian legend Gord Downie has died following a battle with brain cancer.
"He loved every hidden corner, every story, every aspect of this country that he celebrated his whole life," said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday during a national mourning.
His bandmates also made a statement, saying "Gord knew this day was coming - his response was to spend this 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."Tags:
