The Q! audio archives: Gord Downie, 2007
Fans of Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip are reeling from devastating news he has terminal brain cancer.
Downie was diagnosed with the disease last year and has since undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The Hip announced it will hit the road together this summer. Their Man Machine Poem Tour of 11 Canadian cities starts July 22 in Victoria at Save On Foods Memorial Centre.
Let’s flashback to January of 2007 when Gord Downie stopped by The Rock Research Centre before the band’s pair of shows in support of World Container. The Q! had invited five of our nine listeners to meet and greet Gord and ask a question on-air.
Thanks to former Q! staffer Alana Jones for sharing her photo from the meet and greet with Gord Downey during the broadcast.
