    Cdn Legend Passes Away : Stompin Tom Connors has died

    He was one of a kind and did so much to help Canadians celebrate our own unique Canadianness. They were talking on the TSN Hockey panel a few minutes ago about how one of them was in Finland for a tourney and the entire building were singing The Hockey Song word for word.

    He truly was one of a kind and will be missed.

    Official Release at his Website

    God Speed Sir and Thank You.

    His music wasn't really to my taste, but he was a Canadian icon. He will be missed.

    (But I do have a soft spot for "Sudbury Saturday Night!)
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    I like the Hockey Song. And I sing along in the car. Rest in peace Stompin' Tom.

    Saw him live a couple of times. He was so friendly to his fans and spent time talking to us after the concert. A real gentleman.

    Sorry to hear that he is gone - an icon indeed.

    I've been playing this one since I heard the news last night. Seems like a good epitaph.

    The Ballad of Stompin' Tom

    Thanks for the music, Tom. No one wrote the soundtrack of Canada like you.
