It’s a sad day for Canadians. When I heard about Gord passing this morning, all I could think of was this episode of SNL.
I’m not 100% sure but I do believe John Goodman was hosting, however Dan Akroyd was the one who pushed to get the band on SNL, so it was only fitting that he would introduce them.
This was actually my first time seeing the band live, and really the first time I saw what Downie was like performing on stage.
I am so grateful to have been able to be a part of the once in a lifetime experience in 2016, and this is a memory I will never forget.
