Canadian rocker, songwriter, activist and Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie passed away Tuesday evening. Downie had disclosed a diagnosis of glioblastoma, an incurable form of brain cancer in May of 2016. Gord and his bandmates then embarked on a final cross-country tour of Canada.

Downie leaves a legacy of music behind – 14 studio albums with The Hip, as well as 5 solo records, with one last solo effort due out later this month, entitled “Introduce Yerself”.

Downie was surrounded by family when he passed. His music will live on, his spirit will be missed.
