It’s been a while since the Tragically Hip made an appearance in the public eye. Losing Gord Downie in 2017, the remaining member’s of ‘Canada’s Band’ sat down for an interview with ET Canada this past week.
Some of the topics they touched on were the grieving process since Downie’s death this past October, thoughts on continuing as a band – and the support they received from fans. It’s well worth a watch, or a read – which you can do here.
As for the future of Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair and Paul Langlois – they began a new venture as investors in recreational marijuana last year. With legalization on October 17th, it’s been announced that a number of weed strains will be named after various Tragically Hip tracks. Here’s a list of the strains and the songs they come from:
