15 minutes on the phone with 25-year-old Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip

By Steve Newton

Back in 1989 I did the first of my five Georgia Straight interviews with Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip.

I know a lot of my fellow Hip fans are hurting right now with the news of his passing, so here’s something I hope brings a bit of comfort: 15 minutes of Gord being Gord.

Love that guy.
