I am a big fan of their music and especially Downie who really knew how to put on a good energetic show. The group seemed to have been around forever despite never achieving the fame outside of Canada that I always felt they richly deserved. There music doesn't sound like everything else out there. They sung songs with meaning behind them. Bobcaygeon and Ahead By A Century are two of my favorite songs that I always choose for Karaoke because I can sing them so well but also because the songs are two of the beautiful written tunes I have ever heard. I hate to see the young and talented die so early. I wish the gods would take some assholes off the planet for once. I know I will spend more time on the You Tubes this week catching up on their concert footage and remembering all the enjoyment I got out of the band's music.
