The legend lives on

On the Blackbirds blog, Bradley mentions that today is Gene Clark's birthday, but it's also Gordon Lightfoot's birthday. Gord turns 70 today, and he's still alive and playing (unlike Gene Clark).

Here's one of his older tunes that I learned to appreciate when it was covered by Gene Clark of all people.

I've also changed my blog description for the rest of this month in Gord's honor.

To bring this all full fircle, The Blackbirds have actually just started working up a cover of Lightfoot's "Summer Side of Life"!
