Tombstone installed - one year anniversary...http://www.thepeterboroughexaminer.c...to-stompin-tom

A final tribute to Stompin' Tom
Monday, May 5, 2014 4:46:17 EDT PM

A new memorial stone dedicated to Stompin' Tom Connors was crafted by the Little Lake Cemetery Co.

The stone, now at the resting place of the music legend near his family home in southern Ontario, was designed by the Peterborough company with input from Connors' family.

The stone is made of Nova Scotia and Ontario granite, and features details highlighting the musician's love of Canada, good music and the game of chess.

Stompin' Tom, whose nickname came from a Peterborough appearance, died last year; his memorial service was held at the Memorial Centre.

Out of all the tributes that I read here, I didn't see one that mentioned of what Tom thought about Gordon.Or what their relationship if any was like? I apologize if it was mentioned and if I just missed it. But were they friends? Any info on that would be helpful.

I imagine there's no mention of Tom's thoughts on Gordon because the thread is about Tom and everyone's thoughts about him upon his death..

When I spoke on the phone with Gordon in July 2012 - he mentioned Tom:
I asked Gordon if there were any awards he would like to get considering he has almost everything there is to get and if he’s comfortable receiving all of these accolades. He laughed and replied, “I’m always busy working and staying prepared so I don’t have time to rest on my laurels too much.” “I do appreciate them and I’m beginning to appreciate them more and this latest one, this Songwriters award is a very important one. I feel very good about it.” I said, ‘there’s only three Canadians out of the almost 400 who have received the award.” Gordon said, “there’s Leonard Cohen, and myself and who’s the third?” I said I couldn’t’ remember and would have to look that info up. Gordon said, “they should put Bryan Adams in..Hey! They should put Stompin’ Tom Connors in!” I said that seeing Stompin’ Tom in Manhattan just might be worth a trip to New York and he laughed.
