Sat Eye Candy: The Tragically Hip


Simply put, The Tragically Hip’s Gordon Downie is one of the finest frontmen rock has ever known. Possessed of a frightening intellect, a jet black sense of humor, a unique, jittery stage persona and a roaring, flexible vocal range, Downie has helmed the Hip for just shy of 30 years. Revered as one of the greatest Canadian rock bands of all time, The Tragically Hip have built up one of the most fervent fan bases on the globe, thriving as a quintessential cult act that also dents the charts from time to time. Tomorrow is Downie’s 47th birthday and we present a smattering of the Hip at their best as a salute to the hyper-talented man and his ceaselessly excellent band. (Dennis Cook)
