I am a big Gordon Lightfoot fan. I have seen him a number of times in concert . While driving home from an MSO concert, I was flipping the channels on the radio and this interview with Lightfoot wit Jian Gomeshi on (shudder) CBC. Lightfoot is 70 now. Its amazing that he has survived the alcohol and drugs.It is interesting that a lot of his best songs happened during messy breakups. He also thinks alcohol was a bit of a muse
You can listen to the interview here.
Two of my favourite Lightfoot songs.
