Default Terry

I got a phone call at midnight tonight. Terry was taken off life support today after sufffering a stroke 10 days ago, and passed away.

Terrible, terrible news.

The end of an era.

They will still continue on though, and expect to still go out in a couple of weeks.

OMG! I was not prepared to hear this news. I have tears in my eyes. As you said Jenney, the end of an era. RIP Terry.

I am also in shock. He was a very talented and underrated guitarist. At the same time there never was a more gracious person. I will always treasure the autographs I have. I must admit that I wept at the news. I have always loved the way he played everything.

I am so very sorry to hear this terrible news. Poor Terry. He was an awesome picker and will be sorely missed by many, many people. I cannot imagine that empty spot on the right side of the stage. That is going to be very hard to see.

Terry always spoke so highly of Roz and was so proud of his girls. I hope they know how he treasured them.

Very sad news indeed. Key contributor to the Lightfoot sound for more than 40 years.
Terry will be nigh impossible to replace and I feel that 2011 will be the last year of GL going on tour.
A sad consequence.

i thought this was another spam thread at first. sad news indeed. some of his solos made the Lightfoot sound, especially from the mid 70s to early 80s. R.I.P

Sad, sad news. Terry was always so great to talk with and as Brink says he was so proud of his girls.
I think that as long as GL feels he wants to still tour that arrangements will be made to do so for this year (50+ dates are already booked) and onward.
It's very sad.

Any plans to arrange contributions to, say the 'Heart & Stroke' foundation or at least a note of condolence to EMP/Gord/family(?) from Corfid?
Not to be premature but does Gord have someone who knows all the tunes and can sit in on the tour, or would he audition unknowns? I still can't imagine a show without Terry.....

As of now, nothing has been decided on for a memorial. It's still so new that it may take some time to come to grips with.
They will soldier on though, and expect to be out on the road March 15th as scheduled. I can't even imagine what that first concert will be like for the guys after being together for 40+ years. I know it will be hard for most of us, but devestating for them.
My deepest condolences go out to Roz and Terry's children.

What a terrible day.

I'll never forget when Gord had his triumphant "return" in 2004 in Hamilton. After the show, a lot of us gathered at the hotel across the street from the venue. In addition to it being a wonderful night because Gord was "back" it was also a very happy time for Terry because he was so happy to get out there and tour again after such a long time. He had really missed the shows. I don't remember the details of whether his daughter had just gotten her PhD or had just been licensed as a medical doctor, but he introduced me to her and said, "this is DR. CLEMENTS!" He was so proud, he was just beaming. I finally met Roz one time at Massey and was happy to finally meet the gal he always loved and was so proud of. He loved his family very much and my heart goes out to them today.

I think she was a 'doctor' of music...or english.. I think it was English... That was a great night in Hamilton...
One was a prof at a uni/college in Toronto..dont' think it was medical tho..
I got them mixed up - I sat beside one of the girls at Rama when Gord was there a while ago..B.Fiedler on the other side of me..His daughter knew who I was..lol

Mr. Fiedler called me awhile ago to let me know in case I hadn't heard about Terry and to confirm that the 2011 tour is still on with a new guitarist..
A possible press release from EMP will be issued tomorrow.
It was beyond thoughtful of him to call me at such a hectic time. Very sweet man.

This is really sad news. I met Terry many years ago and he was always extremely sweet, kind and funny. He was just a wonderful person and his loss will no doubt be felt deeply by everyone who knew him.
He got me backstage once, and I remember him asking Barry Harvey if I could join them after the show. Hard to believe in the space of a few short years, they're both gone.

Very sad and unexpected news to begin this day with.

Terry's contribution to the Lightfoot sound was undeniable and his was a powerful, albeit a gentle presence up there on that stage being the lead guitar player for Gordon Lightfoot.

Condolences go out to his family and friends. He will surely be missed.

Ron Jones.
