Resurrecting Gordon Lightfoot

Gordon Lightfoot is one of the most polite and graceful of all Folk Legends.  He is quiet and unassuming.  We are grateful to have lived in his lifetime.  His music and his life deserve a resurrection.

From Parade Magazine Personality Parade:

In 2002, Lightfoot suffered a ruptured aortic aneurysm, similar to the condition that killed actor John Ritter.  He endured six weeks in a coma, four surgeries, and two years of extensive rehab.  Now 69 and enjoying a busy schedule, Lightfoot is preparing a ‘live” CD based on his recent concerts in Toronto.
