GUEST,bankley Obit: Stompin' Tom Connors Dead (1936-2013) (72* d) RE: Obit: Stompin' Tom Connors Dead (1936-2013) 07 Mar 13

Back in 1990 when he was on his extensive tour, after a decade of being out of the public eye, he headlined the Gatineau Clog Festival hosted by Wayne Rostad.
Porter Wagoner and Marty Stuart were also on the bill, and I was in a band that played in the afternoon. We had a chance to sit down, one-on-one for a few minutes backstage. I remembered thanking him for his contribution to music and his stance toward the 'industry'
Told him I wrote songs too, He said "Well Ron, keep it Canadian". I said "I'll try Sir". Got his autograph for my daughter on the blank side of an Export cigarette papers pack.

He was on a postage stamp. One of the series where four artists are featured. The others being Edith Butler, Robert Charlebois, and Bryan Adams. I bought a set when they came out.
Interestingly I just came across them again the other day.

Think I'll have a few beers today in memory of the Stomper and Mufferaw Joe
