How wonderful for you two to be able to share that memory - I bet he will never forget it. Keep the ticket stubs - great memorabilia.

Glad to hear it went well. That "every highway" anecdote is mighty cute. (Geez, now I'm doing it)

He will remember.

He can't stop talking about "Carefree Highway"...or should I say 'every highway'...he refuses to believe that Gordon is saying "carefree". Also, he loved Old Dan's Records and "Early Morning Rain" (he also is a big Elvis fan).

Anyway, I am thrilled I took him. Thanks for the advice again.
And the LEGEND lives on...good stuff!!
Hey, if Elvis can change Lightfoot lyrics why not an 8 year old?!

In case you missed my subtle point, the fellow who started this thread is Duff, with the lefty D-18GL.

Thank you for the warm welcome. Been away for awhile. Thoroughly enjoyed the Chattanooga show and it was everything that we come to expect. Gord continues to be passionate about his life's work and we are the better for it. I always leave his concerts with a renewed sense of purpose (to dust off my guitar) and hope. Perhaps I need to broaden my musical horizons, but there seems to be very few artists today who really have something to say and take the effort to frame it in a way that is poetic and memorable. I suppose that is the lament of each generation. Best, Duff
