Two Canadian icons join forces and become partners in music.
One is/was Gord Downie. Lead singer and songwriter of The Tragically Hip.
Truly beloved. And hugely missed after losing his fight to cancer but going out in a blaze of the song with The Hip and the last Cross Canada Tour.
The other is Bob Rock. Known for his production work with Metallica, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Ron Sexsmith and The Tragically Hip.
Bob tells the story of how they became friends and how Gord contacted him and asked if he had any tracks he hadn’t used because he had words he hadn’t used..” so let’s put them together”
The album took years to complete but when they last met. Gord says to Bob “Please finish it”
