The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip
The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip
It’s the book you’ve been waiting for: The Never-Ending Present is the first comprehensive biography of the Tragically Hip, telling the full story from their first basement practices to their equally tragic and triumphant final tour. This unauthorized book by a co-author of Have Not Been the Same draws from more than 80 new interviews with managers, producers, peers and friends to tell the story not only of this band, but of many bands: cover bands, opening bands, aging bands, Canadian bands. A story of poetry and performance, of dealing with disease and of seeking reconciliation, of dance and its disappearance. A story about how this country sees itself in song and otherwise. A story about a show watched by 11 million Canadians, and 33 years of reasons why all those people watched in the first place. A story that will be celebrated on a night in Toronto in a place with checkerboard floors. An evening you won’t want to miss.
