The Cooper Street Relic

Just another blog from The Republic Of Hespeler

Two very different types of Musical Icons passed away on Wednesday, The Great Canadian Stomping Tom Connors and one of the best Guitarists the world has ever known ,Alvin lee.

Despite the differences in musical styles, they were both Artists that I listened to and appreciated for what they brought to the musical world and have both left a legacy that will be remembered for generations to come.   I first heard Stomping Tom on many of those Saturday Nights when my Dad would crank up his stereo and pretend that he was playing the song along with him, causing me to laugh a little not knowing that just a few years later I would play Air Guitar to Alvin lee’s “I’m Going Home”.  They Both will be missed, but thankfully we have their music to remember them by.
