Explosive Tribute To Gordon Downie

I just think it was so fitting, so appropriate, so apropos, that tonight, in my city of Ottawa Canada there were fireworks at the same time that The Tragically Hip were performing their last concert ever, LIVE on TV from Kingston Ontario. The only thing better would have been to be there in person.
Gordon Downie, you have no idea how much your poetry and music and on-stage antics have meant to me over the years.
For those of you who may not know, Gordon Downie, vocalist of the band Tragically Hip was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer this year and this is a brief clip of their final show, viewed from my rooftop apartment. I partied with you, Gordon. 
Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for all that your music has meant to me.
You will forever be, the Canadian Muse.
