Here Is The Message From Tragically Hip About Gord Downie's Terminal Brain Cancer

Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip are such a Canadian institution—such a huge part of the fabric of this country and Canadian pop culture with quitessential songs such as "Bobcaygeon". They are music icons.

The band reported devastating news on their website that frontman Gord Downie has terminal brain cancer. Below is their message to fans...

"Hello friends.

We have some very tough news to share with you today, and we wish it wasn’t so.

A few months ago, in December, Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

Since then, obviously, he’s endured a lot of difficult times, and he has been fighting hard. In privacy along with his family, and through all of this, we’ve been standing by him.

So after 30-some years together as The Tragically Hip, thousands of shows, and hundreds of tours…

We’ve decided to do another one.

This feels like the right thing to do now, for Gord, and for all of us.

What we in The Hip receive, each time we play together, is a connection; with each other; with music and it’s magic; and during the shows, a special connection with all of you, our incredible fans.

So, we’re going to dig deep, and try to make this our best tour yet.

We hope you can come out and join us this summer – details and dates will be coming this week.

And we sincerely thank all of you, for your continued love and support,

Paul, GordD, Johnny, Rob, GordS"

The Summer Anthem of 2010 in the Patch Is...

Could it be that "The East Wind" will be this year's summer anthem? We're going to go out on a limb and say... Yes! Certainly The Wolf has been playing it a lot, and it is a pretty darn infectious tune.

Agree? Disagree? If you have other suggestions or predictions, fire away in our comments section below!
