Once again condolences go out to the family and the numerous friends who still vision Terry up there on that stool making those songs work so well for Gord.

Nice to hear Johann's comment here and I can , in my own way understand that because of the close relationship he had with Terry just how the loss of such a special friend will always remain with him.

Richard Harrison, another artist who worked with the Lightfoot crew in the earlier years also was very close with Terry.

Best to you Richard.

Re: Terry Clements Memorial Service -update
I happened to be looking at a sample page from 2000 of Matthew Fifer's pioneering Lightfoot web site
and thought his page about Terry was interesting:-
Born in Detroit,raised in LA, now lives in the Toronto area.
Musical Background:
Musical director for Johnie Tillison. House writer with Buck Owens. Movie scores. Worked with producer Lou Adler during the Mamas And The Papas era.
How recruited for Gord:
Terry and Gord met while working on Burt Reynolds first flick. Gord asked him to join the band. He and Red Shea then shared the picking for a year until Red quit. First album was Don Quixote.
Martin D 18 and Gretch Country Gentleman.
Outside Projects:
Working on a posthumous album.
Favorite Music:
Early rockers, Motown, Monites de Plata, Fernando Sor, Duane Eddy, Dick Dale, Lonnie Mack, Gravy Martin, James Burton and on and on.
(actually it was Grady Martin the Nashville session guitarist who played on recordings by both Gord and Buddy Holly (a fourth link between my two favourite singers))
Outside interests:
Cooking, jamming in bars, hotel plumbing, and hanging out with the band.
Highlights with Gord:
Hollywood Bowl, Montreal Olympics.

I wonder what happenned to his outside projected posthumous album
or was that a typical example of Clem humour as is
"hotel plumbing"!

I wondered why I was thinking of terry today. I even changed the screensaver on my computer to a picture I took of Terry. I guess my soul remembered it was his birthday even if my brain did not.

Extended condolences once again to Terry's family and friends.

It's wonderful being able to watch the many videos of Terry playing that are now available thanks to the dedicated fans who enjoy sharing.

Nine years now have passed since we lost Terry. His memory lives on though in so many of us to whom he provided so much enjoyment up there backing up Gord on the lead guitar.
Extended condolences to Terry's family.
