10 thoughts on “RIP Stompin’ Tom”

  1. I just tweeted the same thing minutes ago. My dad took the whole family to see him perform at the “old arena” when I was a young girl. I remember him performing the hockey song. Clarence ( my dad ) loved his music. I swear he knew all the words to all his songs and sang along. Brought back memories that I had forgotten until today and hearing of Stompin’ Tom’s passing.
    I also remember him carring a big piece of plywood onto the stage with him and stompin’ away with every song… :)

  2. I feel quite saddened by this news.

    Good old Stompin’ Tom is a legend now and a part of all of us is gone.

  3. CBC radio’s Jian Ghomeshi dedicated his program today to Stompin’ Tom Connors. Guests, including Dave Bidini join him to remember how Stompin’ Tom touched their lives…

    “With the news that Stompin’ Tom Connors has died, we present a special tribute on Q, with some of the people who knew and loved him best. Plus Jian’s last interview with the Canadian patriot and folk legend.”

  4. Totally one of a kind Stompin Tom was….
    He could get any bar in any Canadian village,town or city just a rockin on a Saturday night..

    He is a Canadian Legend …period

  5. We saw Stompin’ Tom a few years ago at Casino Rama and as usual he had the place vibrating.
    I especially like The Hockey Song, Sudbury Saturday Night ( I am from Sudbury) and Bud the Spud. I love to play his CD while on a road trip.
    He has left a mark on the musical culture of Canada-what more could a musician ask for.?
    RIP Stompin’ Tom.

  6. Thanks for this, Marg. I think folks from other countries wouldn’t understand, but we had Stompin’ Tom. He was as Canadian as can be.

  7. Didn’t catch it all but from what I gather he might be eligible for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
