I believe I saw PP and M in the UK in the early 60's in concert once
certainly the day I flew from London to Montreal 6 April 1964 my friend
and I had to wait at the door out to the plane to let PP and M pass
into the building a real close up I have looked at
and seen that the news on Mary there is not as up to date as what we
heard on Auguist 27th
at the concert outlined at:-
Mary's last mesage on the 28th said
P.S. We'll be touring next year!
I was of course most interested to read
"Got drunk with
Gordon Lightfoot at about the time he cut his first album"
Presumably you meant back in the 60's ?? The Way I Feel album??
or 70's If You Could Read My Mind?
But as I also see that you practice in Burlington VT perhaps you
visited Tronno ??
Gord of course thankfully quit drinking in 1983
But we saw him in April at the Orleans Casino in Las Vegas and he spoke
to a lot of us after the concerts in the bar outside the theatre
I remember Burlington quite well as towards the end of my nearly 6
yrears in Muntreal we often drove to Plsttsburg and then through your
city early on a Saturday morning for "Canadian skiing" day at
Smuggler's Notch/Madonna Mountain
Such great memories!!
I do hope you visit the two Lightfoot message boards I gave the links
to and post some reminiscences of the time you drank with Gord
I have checked the Calvin Center site for tickets and there appear to
be plenty of tickets still available
(unbelievably because all his recent shows have been sold out way in
unless I misread rhe chart unsold seats include some in the front row
