Hey Jesse Joe, I've noticed that you sometimes post newspaper clippings of Gord articles. They copy great and of course, I'm a collector of all things Gord. In other words, feel free to post others of your probable vast collection. I'd certainly appreciate it.

T.C.


Anyone here can post old clippings, {etc} of our guy if you wish too...

Might be interesting to discover more about: 'Gordon Lightfoot' !!!

Jesse Joe,

I find these to be fascinating......thanks for sharing them.

I'm especially taken by the Peter Goddard article that attempts to delve into his psyche. It's kind of eerie, but it also correlates with my perception of Lightfoot at that time. Was/is Peter Goddard a well respected journalist ?

Your very welcome RM, Im glad you find these old articles fascinating, and Im happy to post them. Im sure there are others that have lots to share also, hope they do. As for Peter Goddard, I know nothing about him. Google might have something though ?

Assuming I have the right Peter Goddard, he is definitely accomplished :

I think you got the right Peter Goddard. Because the article for Gord turning 40 was in Maclean's Magazine.

What do teenagers know anyway ?

This has to be one of the best threads ever.......As a 19-20 year old, I struggled to find any info at all on this mysterious artist whose music touched home somewhere. Again, I appreciate the enlightenment.

I posted this one before - you might have missed it.
It's written by Lightfoot himself.
