Please visit the site and peruse the birthday wishes. It's amazing....my favorite so far is :

"Gordon Lightfoot has created some of the most beautiful and lasting music of our time. He is Bob Dylan's favorite singer/songwriter - high praise from the best of us, applauded by the rest of us."

Default Happy Birth(70)day !!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! GORDONMEREDITH LIGHTFOOT ,JR ( 70)

STILL LOVE your songs & followed your career since 1977 (when I was a child.. grew up with GL music ) thanks to my Dutch father , but unfortunately never been able to attend one of your concerts.

Canada that brought us a World’s MasterCrown Troubadour –“ the work of a mature and gifted songwriter “

Thanks for timeless warm and catchy poets/ ballads and riffs you offered the mankind ears throughout decades, blessed with your beloved musicians Red Shea (lead guitar)- may rest in peace - and Rick Haynes (bass) on your side.

Yes…Blessed I am with the fact that I´m named after one of the top 100 most beautiful songs "a Precious One"ever written on the planet Earth, 2nd track on the album “Summer Side of Life” … how fortuitous !, being born 1971 ( October 13th ), the year this Masterpiece was released.

Great RESPECT for the man ! The highest civilian honour of Troubadour - icon CANADA can be proud of !!!


Have a pleasant celebration with your family and all the people you love… Keep writing and singing your songs in the years may come ! { that more people may inspired by your music }


A Javanese (origin) Dutch devoted Gordon Lightfoot fan

Sugiarto MIGUEL Dijkstra
Leeuwarden - Fryslân, The Netherlands




One -planned- live performance of this Legend in the Netherlands in near future is a Dream come True !

Greatest and happiest wishes on Gordon's 70th Birthday!!

I know it's already getting into the latter part of the evening where he is,so his birthday's nearly done for the day but I knew I had to be here for this monumentous occaision!

Hard to believe he was still 64 when i signed up here and at the latter end of 62 when i bought "Songbook" and became a fan. With all that in mind :

Here's to many,many,many,many,more!!

As for Miguel's message.I simply highligted it. No sweat.

An unexpected day off from work today (snow ) so I spent the day driving around, exploring the area. Stopped into a Goodwill store and IYCRMM was playing on the radio. A few of us in the store, including yours truly were singing along . When the song ended...the dj mentioned Gordon's 70th birthday!!!

A Goodwill happy 70th birthday to Gordon Lightfoot

Speaking of IYCRMM. In honor of his 70th I've just posted a cover of this song on YouTube and added it to the thread with my other videos.

Again, Happy 70th Birthday Gord! We're having a "Gord night", just finished watching Gord's Live In Reno and thought we'd post our birthday wishes. We're on our second glass of wine and on to Songbook...

BTW, Billw, thanks again - your thoughtfulness made my night!
