I got wondering about Gordon Lightfoot. Why? Well today is his birthday. He was born on this date back in 1938. Wow, you know that puts him five years older than I am and he is still performing. He was a prominent song writer and performer of the 60's. He was born in Ontario, Canada but went to a music school in Los Angles. He soon missed his Canadian home and moved back there in 1960.
To me, his greatest music achievement was writing the song "Ribbon of Darkness" which became a number one hit when recorded by Marty Robbins. He toured not only his home country of Canada, but the United States, Europe, and Australia.
How many of you remember Gordon Lightfoot? How many of you have even heard of him? Music has always been a big part of my life. I like to listen to it and sing and play the guitar. Of course, I only do so for my pleasure and to rid the house of unwanted pests. Now, you all hum a tune and have a great day today, you hear?
