I was so fortunate to speak with Gord Downie. He didn’t do a lot of interviews. He called the radio station to speak about his solo album, The Grand Bounce, in June of 2010.
We not only talked about his solo material, but hockey came up in conversation as the playoffs had just ended and his team had been eliminated.
The 2010 NHL season ended badly for the Boston Bruins. In the Conference Semifinals, Philadelphia became the third NHL team to come back from a 3–0 deficit to win a series 4 games to 3.
