Re: Happy Birthday Gordon!

Sure has been a odd year. No Gordon concerts and not seeing him in a few years now. I hope he is very well and having a nice Birthday with family and friends. Happy Birthday Gordon.

Re: the Lightfoot Childhood Homestead - PHOTOS

Looks bad with the porches removed. I guess he is wanting out instead of keeping with building codes for historical status in case it goes that way..

Re: "Daylight Katie" has passed!

Ok, I get Daylight Katy was Cathy Coonley, but who are you talking about who sang on all those songs you listed. Was it Jan that you mentioned at the end of the line? Things kind of ran all together.

Re: Gordon and kim are married !

I think her touring with him all the time makes it a lot easier for him, and for Rick too, who had to do the right hand man chores before.

Re: Does Gord ever listen to his own music?

When his daughter Meridth lived with him, I'm sure he heard her playing and listening to his music so she could perform it on line and other places.

Re: San Francisco Examiner interview ''Grandpa donít take no holidays!''

Re: AUSTIN, TX Show last night - AWESOME!

Milissa, You are right, if the audience isn't into it the show suffers. I have seen it happen many times. Would have been nice to see your 2nd part, sorry someone put a damper on you.
