I was going to post this, you beat me to it.

Very sad to hear, was not unexpected, but to die so young at 53 is tragic, no pun intended.

Yes, way too soon, and sad. I never liked that band for years, finally a few tunes caught me, and despite not being an ardent fan, I deeply respect their accomplishments. He was quite a character.

The Hip had an enormous following in my circles, we will miss Gord and the band too. RIP
