The folks who printed this are not big Lightfoot fans.

Perhaps not, but they are the company hired to promote the concert...

Someone should contact them, and advise them on their 'faux pas' !

This reminded me of a rare live recording passed to us by a member here in which Gord clearly sings a few times "If I Could Read My Mind"
I have never been able to decide if it is genuine or just a very cleverly and heavily doctored version of the original recording. Whatever it sure is humourous as the member here can attest if he so wishes

Remember the "Every Song Ever Written" topic I posted? It sure sounded like he was singing those songs. I especially like how he was singing 'Happy Birthday'. It really sounded like his voice, plus it sounded a lot like the style in which he would sing it. So whoever created that video, they must've knew a lot about Gord.

There is also a spelling mistake in Fitzgerald. Clearly this promoter is top notch!

Friday the 13th? Good thing I'm not superstitous!

Well in the meantime - a little trivia question pertaining to the City of Waterbury...

This politician from Waterbury spent time in Federal prison...who was he?

Oooooooopppppppssss! There may be at least a dozen or more individuals who fit that description! I better be more specific - this one, a former Governor was accused and committed of a Federal crime(s) while still in office. The City of Waterbury recently hired him to head the business and economic development office.
