Gordon Lightfoot is absolutely one of my favorite singer/songwriters, whom my friend Steve and I would most often listen to on the way to and from our outdoor adventures, including Lake Superior — Gordon’s song: “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”
I wish Steve was still alive, and I hope Gordon can see the revival happen before he dies.
I also learned to play and sing many of his wonderful songs. Never liked “Sundown,” though.
Here, Gordon talks about how he almost died in 2002:
Gleanings from Gordon Lightfoot’s 43-minute interview. Gordon is Scottish — ‘Braveheart’!! I LOVE his music, but now I know why I never liked his song, “Sundown.” Unfortunately, his seediest song was his biggest hit! But there is a true “Carefree Highway” that we can all travel on together — FOREVER!!!
