I got to see him in concert back in the 70's and even got to meet him and I got his autograph. As friendly and down to earth a man you'll ever want to meet. And he put on a he11 of an entertaining show. No pretense or big spectacle; just him and his guitar and his band and his piece if plywood to stomp on. Plus his hilarious sense of humour. Top marks all around.
Next time I hear "The Hockey Song", I'll get misty-eyed for sure.
From one proud Canadian to another:
God Bless You, Tom, and Thank You.
