While I was visiting Sault St. Marie, MI last summer, I struck up a conversation with one of the locals. The subject turned to Gordon Lightfoot and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald". This person led me to believe that it was sort of taboo to mention "Wreck" since people were disappointed that Mr. Lightfoot did NOT donate any royalties from the song to any of the victim's families. Is this true?

Regardless, "Wreck" is still one of my favorite GL songs(next to "Cold on the Shoulder") especialy Terry Clements' wailing guitar riffs.

Thank you!
