Default Re: If Gord's Lungs Could Speak

We all love Gordon, no question here. He knows we
are on here discussing many things about him, mostly his music.

We've discussed other aspects of his personal life before,
including drinking and to me, ssmoking is certainly no exception.

My father smoked from age 11 to 61, tried only 2 maybe 3 times to quit but quit the final time when it was too late. He was born Sept. 1938 just under 2 months older than Gordon.

In Gord's case, he's been very lucky to be with us, my father been gone since 8/17/2000....actually 5 weeks or so before turning 62, he'd be 78 now himself.

It seems to me (by my observations of men in my Dad's generation) they all started smoking for close to the same reasons. It wasn't 'known' to be dangerous and the stars al smoked, their parents probably did and the tobacco co.'s made sure people would 9 out of 10 times, end up 'lighting up
