I'm trying to remember. I don't keep dates in my memory too well these days!

I think it would have been around 1977 or 1978 at Ravinia, outside of Chicago.

I saw him in the very early 80's in Houston in a relatively small venue, sort of a club in the round.

I also remember being back at Ravinia in the early 1990s to catch a concert.

Then there have been the last three seasons at the Paramount in Aurora.

Silverheels, you are certainly right -Gord was not a pleasant sight drunk. It's sad because some people may never see him again and so will remember him that way.

Hey Wyn, I've see Gord at Ravinia several times myself. :) Used to live in the Chicago area, so it was fairly convenient. It was a great place for a concert!

As I have no doubt bored you all many times before,I will repeat my point that I was most fortunate to attend an intimate (250 or less audience) concert at the New Penelope Coffee Bar in Montreal on May 21st 1967,

so it is now just over 40 years man and boy. But that date is easily bettered by that fine fellow Ron Jones who was avidly seeing and chatting with Gord way before that at The Riverboat in Tronno. Cue for Ron to reveal some stories!!

Almost 35 years since my first GL concert. October 1972 in San Jose, CA. My long term memory seems to be okay, just don't ask what I did yesterday! :rolleyes:

Carkeys, wallet, and car are all accounted for. My destiny? That remains a mystery. Hey, I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up! :D

Lived overseaas so long and never caught up with the LEGEND until 1994. It was a memorable concert.You guys are the luckiest who have seen him through the range of his great career. However, concerts these days are absolutely GOLD! Things change and Gord is putting ALOT of himself into concerts these days. We are blessed, so is he...

re: concerts these days are absolutely GOLD! Things change and Gord is putting ALOT of himself into concerts these days..

I've been thinking about something he reportedly remarked at Mariposa in the rain..

to the affect that, "We came here to do a job, and we're gonna DO it!"..

Oh Gord.. you're so lovely..
Thanks mate..
