Default Re: Rembering Red

Nine years today since we lost Red.

He's still with us though with that unmistakably indelible contribution he created with Gordon Lightfoot during the early years.

In the booklet that accompanies the three disc collection "The Original Lightfoot" Red is referred to as "an integral part of the Gordon Lightfoot sound."

So today I will be teaming up with Red's friend and student, Paul Bartlett to "The Gayety Theatre" in Collingwood, Ontario to take in a concert featuring "Classic Lightfoot Live" a very fine sounding Gordon Lightfoot band which includes two of Red's students, John Stinson on vocal, six and twelve string guitars, Eric Kidd on lead guitar and Gord's nephew, Steve Eyers on bass. Our very good friend, the multi talented Jimmy Jones plays keyboard in the band.

What better way to to get into things more happy than blue eh?
