Default Remembering Barry Harvey.

Today would be the 7th anniversary of the passing of Barry Harvey, Gord's long term business manager. How the time does slip by.

Extended condolences to Barry's family.

Yes, sure do miss him. He was cool always, and had a great way with people. A good man all the way around. I never met a better manager. I will always remember him winning a big cup full of quarters when they were at Mohegan Sun casino, he was having so much fun. I also hope his family is doing well.

For those of you who were there, and ordered copies, the 2002 Caffe Lena Gordon Lightfoot Tribute Band Concert CDs were only possible because of Barry. I had a very agreeable phone conversation with Barry about the project.

I could have faced some hefty licensing fees if Barry hadn't just turned his head and said: "Hey, you're not selling them for a profit, let's just say we didn't talk."

A very reasonable reply from the manager of a man who guards his copyrights zealously.

What a great thread this is and thank you Ed for commenting here.

It's very nice to read comments that keep alive wonderful memories of Barry Harvey who was so closely connected to the journey and have passed on before us but still very much alive. A dedicated man he was.

May I take this opportunity also, as Ed doesn't comment here often, that Ed Mullen is a very special guy in my life.

He's the one who welcomed me into the Gordon Lightfoot family back in the days of the Google Newsgroup, "Net People" as Gord refers to us. Till that point, I thought I was alone, lost in this brilliant music, all on my own.

No apologies though, not ever, to anyone.

Fast forward here:

It wasn't until Marian from the Mountains and I got settled back to live out our "golden years" here in Toronto that I had an opportunity to view that amazing and very first "Gordon Light Tribute" concert performance at Caffe Lena in Sarasota Springs, NY.

A ton of work went into that gig and those folks traveled far and wide to make this the very first "Gordon Lightfoot Tribute" concert. Kudos to you guys!

Thanks Barry for allowing it to happen.

Amen to the above. And "special" is not a big enough word. For lots of folks, those Caffe Lena concerts were nothing short of awesome. I missed the first one, in 2002, but I was there the next year, for the return engagement. It was that weekend in Saratoga Springs, in April, 2003, that really turned my musical life around. Like so many others, I thought I was the only GL fan left, until I found those Lightheads. I'll never be able to thank Ed, Derek, Matt and Cathy enough for inspiring me, with those concerts, to move forward with music. There were other Lightheads involved in that adventure (including Lori, who was in that first LTB in 2002!), and, of course, Val, who put the thing together, but it was Ed who performed the monumental task of putting those recordings together, mixing, producing the CD's and handling the distribution to all of us and giving us a glimpse of that magical time in Saratoga Springs. That first LTB didn't have the luxury of getting together to practice in person - they did it all via email, chats, exchanging mp3's online - and then had a day and a half together to rehearse before performing 2 2-hour concerts to a packed room on Fri. and Sat. nights. It was terrific. I'll never forget it, nor ever stop wishing I could go back to that weekend and relive it all over again!

The passing of someone we know who worked so hard keeping alive what we all enjoy so much will never be forgotten.

The folks who have passed on and contributed so greatly to Gord's music, those guys like Barry Harvey, Red Shea, Terry Clements, they seem to have been as much a part of our lives as we have of theirs.

They all made their own personal mark and it lives on throughout this wonderful journey.

To the family of Barry Harvey, my extended condolences.

I still think of him often, especially when I read of or see Gordon in concert. A Prince of a man. My condolences to his family.
