Thread Name: 25 Years Ago Today Stan Rogers Died
Subject: RE: 25 Years Ago Today Stan Rogers Died
I'm sorry I did not know much about Stan Rogers when I heard the news, we had not really got into the folk scene in Canada having moved from UK to Montreal in 77 and to Ontario in 79 with two kids we didn't arrive with.
So one of the first things I recollect strongly was the news of his death.
It was more significant for myself at the time as it was a DC9 aircraft which crashed and I worked for McDonnel Douglas, the manufacturer.
I can say though it wasn't one which I had anything to do with building.
I have learned a lot more about Stan and know more of his songs than before his death, pity that's what it took.
