The first time I heard “Ahead By A Century”, I was a Hip fan. A Hip fan for life.

Hearing the news yesterday morning that Gord had lost his battle with brain cancer, my heart was shattered. The Hip not only wrote the soundtrack of entire generation of music fans – they wrote the soundtrack of our country.

RIP Gord Downie. You really were ahead by a century.
