Whatever Happened To… Gordon Lightfoot?

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald – Gordon Lightfoot (1976)
This Canadian singer-songwriter, having found initial success as a songwriter in the 60’s, found his commercial success – as a performer – during the 70’s. While his popularity in the US has since waned, he’s remained an icon in his native Canada. Despite a major medical condition in 2002, Lightfoot has continued to perform and record consistently over the years, albeit at a slower pace. His most recent studio album was released in 2004, his most recent live set was released last month.
