Default Biography

Hello, this is my first post.

First of all I have to say I enjoy browsing through the discussion boards. Since I'm obviously not the only one obsessed with all things GL I have decided to come out of the closet.

Anyway, my question is - I am looking for a "definitive" Lightfoot biography out there. I mean one either endorsed by the man himself or a close second, accurate and well-written.

Thanks for your recommendations.

-- Mary

If you can find an authorized biography of Gordon anywhere, then PLEASE let me know too. I think it might make for some rather interesting reading.

Well I'm a writer by trade. I'm pursuing a biography possibility with another Canadian music act, but would love to tackle Gordon if he's game. We need a comprehensive account from his perspective.

Would be great if Gordon wrote his own life story. Anyone know if he's considered doing this?

Thanks a lot for posting the link Charlene. I enjoyed reading your story and the interview.

I seem to keep asking about stuff that's already been dealt with. Am I missing a search function somewhere?

I got it. I honestly didn't see it the first time....

Guess you could call that "Blind As Blind Can Be". (Tongue firmly planted in cheek...)
