Great job and description of Terrys service. I could picture it all just fine. You sure do a fine service to Gord and the guys. Thanks

Wow.. I'm late posting this.. I really wish I could have been there in person myself. I'm a bit humbled that GL actually read my condolence message to Terry's family during the service.

It was the least I could do.. Gord and his band have been like good friends you see periodically.. and I consider myself fortunate this has been the case for 21 years now.

Terry was Johann's best friend.

at this link you can find an instrumental as a 2nd anniversary tribute to Terry

** "From my song 'Stars In Your Eyes'**..I've taken Terry's guitar tracks and created an instrumental entitled* 'Journey To The Stars' "

Thanks for sharing, Johann

ps) enjoy a sampling of his other wonderful recordings, too!

It sure is hard to believe that those two years have gone by so quickly.

I guess in a way of it's own it tends to make us feel that Terry is not that far removed from us and probably never will be as he's tied so closely to the music we all love.

Extended condolences to Terry's family and to Johann as well who considered Terry his best friend.

I decided to read this thread and I must say, Mr. Clements would be happy and proud of all of you.
Being blessed with the chance to hang out and party with him after a show they did here in Tampa Bay 10 years ago, I really enjoyed his company. No ego trips at all. He was the guy that you'd want by your side
Now, He's playin' and a' grinnin' in heaven...

this is a beautiful tribute. I have been hoping Johann would share some of Terry's beautiful guitar with us. Thank you so much, Johann. My thoughts are with you today, and with Terry's family. Terry is truly missed.

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.

thoughts go out today to Terry's close friends, including our bass player, Scott...a fairly rare photo of Terry standing and playing...an evening with Lou!

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:-
http://web.archive.org/web/20000307044009/http://www.mmlc.nwu.edu/~mfifer/lightfoot/band/terry.html
TERRY CLEMENTS
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.
Gear:
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.
