It’s a Sad day not just in Music, but in Canada as a whole. We lost a Canadian Icon, a legend and a true talent. Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip has passed away peacefully last night surrounded by his wife and children.

Today on the KK Show and every hour throughout the day, we will be playing songs from The Tragically Hip in memory of Gord.

  3. To the Downie family
    my deepest condolences goes out to you
    I was a fan since the get go 1987
    my father took me to my first concert cause I was only 12 years of age
    the hip got booed and Mr Downie had a shoe hit him and they walked off the stage
    I saw the Tragically Hip 34 times
    he was my idol in so many ways the way he was so zany
    he will be missed in the music world and by his friends and family
