Gord Downie, activist and frontman of The Tragically Hip, succumbed to brain cancer last evening (October 17, 2017). Seven years ago, on September 22, 2010, Downie stopped by CFOX to chat with Neil Morrison. He was in Vancouver to promote his latest solo album, titled The Grand Bounce, and played the Vogue Theatre later that evening.
Here are some photos and video from that interview.
