I have followed and known Gordon for over 35 years and am honored to have heard the best singer songwriter ever. Most recent at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering Ohio and in Akron at the Akron Civic Theatre 2010. His passion for music is unsurpassed- his emotion with which he sings continues to come through no matter what age- this will never change because Gordon and his songs are one- His love of the audience and their love of him blends both together- I am extremely proud of his accomplishments and again am honored to have known him . I would travel to all his shows if possible Gods Speed to Gordon and a great band - Rick, Terry, Barry and Michael

The backup group was the highlight of the show. Gordon Lightfoot appeared all of his 71 years. It was very hard to hear him sing, and I think at first he wasn't even hitting the microphone. He seems to mumble when signing or talking to the audience. I was very dissapointed in the performance. I too would recommend buying the CDs and listening to what used to be. He seems to still be suffering the effects of his medical problems from 8 years ago. His right hand seems to be still paralyzed from the stroke--it hardly moves. Without the great lead guitarist, it really would have been a disaster.
He still has it-- saw him at the Coach House in San Jaun Capistrano California late last year---- the voice is a bit quieter but waaaaaaay in tune, great phrasing and control and of course playing...this is THE guy who writes all of these songs and no one on the planet sings them as well as he--- I will still be buying tickets when this stud is just humming the tunes--- it is still a great experience--colors on the palet change but the art is still as good --- or better--- I have seen him a half dozen times going back to the Golden Bear in Huntington Bech in about 68 or so----he is the best...end of story----

Gordon Lightfoot put on such a fabulous, magnificant @ charming performance at the Sunrise Theatre in Ft. Pierce, Florida 3-13-10 !!!! The years for each and every one of us takes its toll, however, he took us down "memory-lane" like no other artis could. Only those who were with him thru the 60's can appreciate his passion for music & his audiance. His presence and sence of homor was so enchanting! Look at your own self - nothing stays the same forever. He @ his band performed with tenderness and sincerity. If he comes to your town & you relate to his poetic essence, GET A TICKET! Remember, time stands still for no one! He was outstanding & took me back to a time & place of how beautiful music began. His talent and life experiences should have us all take a look at our accomplishments.Do YOU still sound & look the same 35 years ago? He was awesome! He surely can jam!
