I thought Gord did a pretty decent job of presenting/narrating Burton's story....

That was incredible!

Burton is fantastic and totally deserves to be there . . . TWICE!

The Lightfoot connection is the icing on the cake.

Thanks for posting this.

As a kid I wore out multiple LP needles playing "The Best of the Guess Who" over and over. This was before I happened on my brother's copy of Sundown and got turned on to Lightfoot music. Such a rich voice!

Burton's a great musician, and a hell of a nice guy. He really deserved this, and I'm glad Gordon was able to participate.

I liked the show opening but couldn't understand all of the Chantal lyrics. Like a cross between Sinead and Kate Bush. Howie turned it into a Canada's got Talent vibe, lol.





Can't believe his timing as he finished the Nestir intro while standing in front of mrs Richler and saying sl*t.

Beiber looks weird with the pixie cut and earrings. Grow a beard or something

Russel Peters: walk of fame? That certainly just lowered the bar...

I wore out the 8-track tape in my car. Finally bought it on CD a few years ago.

I never knew Eric McCormick could sing, he did a great job. Loved Gord telling the story of Burton's career. I thought Burton looked so cute in the audience, it must just be so overwhelming for him.
