I got the ticket for my 17th birthday along with a hit of acid. Spent most of the day playing hackey sack and dodging my mother as I was high... When the Hip came on, I squeezed up to the front and was completely entranced by Gord. He was acting out all the songs and sang with such a passion!! I was hooked. Now The Hip have been with me through marriage, prison, divorce and wandering around Canada with a back pack and a walkman. I am loving Gord's solo stuff as well as the Hip album's!!!
