Skip & Josh Special Part 1-Tribute to Gord Downie

We have yet to fully understand or realize the breadth and depth of Gord Downie’s influence. Musically, poetically, socially, personally, Gord Downie was always more than the frontman for The Tragically Hip: he was a Canadian icon. We connected with the guys over at the Skip & Josh Podcast to talk about the Hip, swap stories and have a good old fashioned tribute to a great Canadian from Kingston, Ontario.

This is part 1 of our chat. Be sure to check out the second part of our conversation, talking about politics and sports, on The Skip and Josh Podcast. You can find that episode everywhere you listen to podcasts. Follow Skip & Josh at: Website | Twitter @Skipandjosh | Facebook @skipandjosh

Concluding thought:  Music brings people together. So my function in anything I do is to help bring people closer in.
