I became a big fan when my family went to the museums at Whitefish Point about eight years ago. I have always been fascinated about shipwrecks and when I first heard The Wreck I was hooked to his music. Gords music can help get you through some of lifes hardships much easier. At least it does for me. My biggest highlight of my life was when I was able to meet Gord after the concert he did here a couple years ago. Happy Birthday Gord.

I first heard your music on CHUM from Toronto (I grew up across the lake. My Dad was born Canadian and became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Really got into your work when a couple other guys and I drove a motor home non-stop from L.A. to Anchorage over ab ut four days with just about nothing to listen to but "Old Dan's Records" on 8-track and we bought "Sundown" on the way. That was 1974. Since then I have been to about a dozen concerts of yours from California to Nevada to Ohio to New York. I really li ed the song you did a time or two in concert called "Forgive Me, Lord." It would be great, and I don't think out of character," for you to do an album of tunes with religious lyrics, sentiments, or flavors. It could be entitled "The Gospel According to ord" and could include such songs as the above, "Too Late for Prayin'," "The Pride of Man," "The House You Live In," "A Tree Too Weak to Stand," "The Soul is a Rock," "Race Among the Ruins," "Ring Them Bells," "Mister Rock of Ages," "Peaceful Waters," "Ri h Man's Spiritual," and "Sit Down, Young Stranger," to name some that come to mind. Happy Birthday, and keep up the good work!

I think Gordon Lightfoot is and always will be ahead of his time. He has done more for music with his lyrics and song writing than any other artist. I am so glad to have enjoyed him for as long as I have and hope to continue to for many years to come. wish him the best on his 60th birthday and many, many more wonderful years to come. I am hoping to see him in concert someday. God speed and bless you for all the enjoyment you have given to so many. Thank you for being you and sharing your talents wi h all of us.

In late 1974 I took my then girlfriend now wife to see Gordon at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC. I was a big fan at the time. Was our first date. Gordo walked off after 30 minutes complaining of feedback. I assume it was actually an attack of Bell's Palsy. Though I drifted to Jim Croce & Jimmy Buffett & now The Band, I'm back. Glad to know the Croce & Buffett idolize you. Happy 6o.

In late 1974 I took my then girlfriend now wife to see Gordon at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC. I was a big fan at the time. Was our first date. Gordo walked off after 30 minutes complaining of feedback. I assume it was actually an attack of Bell's Palsy. Though I drifted to Jim Croce & Jimmy Buffett & now The Band, I'm back. Glad to know the Croce & Buffett idolize you. Happy 6o.

Thanks so much for the oh so many years of listening pleasure you have given me as well as for what some of your songs have inspired me to do. I hold both you and the great Harry Chapin as perhaps the greatest songwriters of my generation.

I heard Gordon at McMaster University with my brother when I was about 17. I was absolutely breath-taken by his performance. I can still hear the huge authentic clarity of his guitar and of his band's music. I have been an avid fan ever since.

Best wishes to the musician who changed my life, and has given me my own special *personal* music for so many years. Sometimes, it defies analysis why *everyone* wouldn't feel like I do about Gord and his music! His voice in my view, was incomparable, l ke a rare Stradivarius. His latest album is now in my possession and I still here the beauty in songs like "Ring-necked Loon". I wish him and his loved ones good health and happiness always... I would do anything to meet and Thank Gord personally for th musical gifts he has given me, it seems, now, my whole life (since 1969). Happy Birthday, Gordon, from a devoted listener for almost 30 years. Best of health and happiness to you and your loved ones. Best Regards, Ron Sills, M.D. 200 Ave K, SE #194 Winterhaven, Fl. 33880

Gord: I have been in love with you all my life, it seems, perhaps because it seemed that you have always sang my life. Your music touches my soul and my heart. You are truly the world's last troubador. I have always wanted to meet you; I have every al um you've ever made, and know every word to every song. I'd settle for an autographed photograph, if you could arrange such a thing. I'm still listening to you every day, and I attended every concert you gave in Colorado. (I was there at Red Rocks Amph theatre in Summer of 1975 when they threw oranges on the stage.) I'm looking forward now to seeing you here in the Bay area. Thank you for sharing your soul and experiences with us...don't ever quit. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GORDON! Love, Tina.

Just attended your concert at Kewadin Casino in the Soo last night and wanted to let you know you look and sound as great as every other time I've gone to see you. I've been to Massey Hall, Interlochen, Soo Memorial Garden, Meadowbrook Theater, etc. Too my 25 year old daughter, Heather and she totally enjoyed hearing all the songs she already knows most of the words to from hearing them played in the vehicles, home, etc. Just hope you don't ever stop playing around our area. Don't ever stop!!! You are timeless. I have been backstage with my "twin" friends, several times, and thouroughly enjoy all your band members and your road manager is the greatest!!!! Grace and Gl ria say Hi also. Gloria was totally screaming at the stage last night, she'd had a few to loosen her tongue...but it was great fun to be there and see everyone enjoying all the great songs, old and new. See you again, I'm sure. Have a wonderful 60th!! Kris and Larry Davis

I've always had a healthy love of music. Your music has enriched my life in very profound ways. Strangely enough, your music often reminds me of my long drives from Los Angeles to Dallas every year. It evokes images of the desert as well as the ocean, oth being places I love. I've listened to your music regularly and can remember going to sleep on music from Sundown or Summertime Dream in my youth. I hope you continue to grace us as an adoring public and provide the blessings of more incredible music for decades to come. Your concert in San Luis Obispo was wonderful. I hope to see you again soon. Happy Birthday

Happy 60th birthday Gord! I've been listening to your music since I was 2 years old. Needless to say my parents are also big fans of yours. I hope to see you in concert some day soon (When are you coming to Winnipeg again?). You are the greatest singer/songwriter of all time.

Dear Gord, Just want to wish you a happy 60th and many more. I learned to write songs by listening to your recordings...we've never met but I sent my copy of your biography backstage with Joe Sia, the photographer and it came back with a signature. You have been my biggest inspiration to my songwriting...may the Lord's blessings descend on you and your family, and thank you for all you've given to us. With warmest wishes, Don Lombardi

Congrats.. you old fart. You made it! Wishing you the very best of health wealth and happiness. I snuck my way backstage at the Seattle Opera House to meet you and wrote an article for the Spectator News paper way back in 1978 at Seattle University. P omised you a copy. Still want it? Hey, Who's wolf? And did you really meet my uncle Jim Briggs of Calgary in Toronto? I know that SOB is lying. Happy 60th.

My mother would slap in an 8 track in our station wagon when I was 5 years old and the joy of your music has never left me since. I just watched your interview with Peter G. last night on video and all I can say is "what a joy it was to watch". Thanks for all that you give to us with your music and words. Thanks!!!!!!

Gordo, Thanks for inspiring me to pick up a guitar for the first time. I've seen you the past few years that you've come to Dayton and Springfield Ohio. You sounded great. Please urge the record companies to re-release "Old Dan's Records" on CD in the US. Happy 60th
