Re: Gordon's Master Recordings

I haven't read anything about Gord losing master tapes. I did read that Neil Diamond was among those who lost something, just what I don't know. It's odd, I know that Neil owns all his masters, so...

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot

Many of you may not know this but there is a very good chance that the next mayor of Chicago will be Lori Lightfoot. As of this writing on March 25, 2019, she is way ahead of her opponent. Both...

Re: What will Gord's new songs be about?

I'm wondering just how much money he wants to spend on recording the album. Will he return to the studio in Hamilton, or even record in his own house. These days you can have an entire recording...

Re: Concert in Flagstaff AZ

Don't forget, Gord has emphysema and his lungs can't adapt to changes in environment the way a person with healthy lungs (and younger) can adapt.
