Thread Name: In Memory: Stan Rogers (1949-1983)
Subject: RE: In Memory: Stan Rogers (1949-1983)
I was 40, recently married and with a young son having just arrived and living in Toronto when Stan was killed in this horrible event. I'd seen him at Mariposa and other locations since arriving from BC to study at Ryerson in 1969. I loved Stan's music, especially 'Make and Break Harbour'which has stayed with me all these years. I wrote to his Mom at the time of his death and heard from her not too long after, just before we moved to Vermont. I have her card somewhere. It's 2015 now. I'm almost 74 and just bought Stan's 'Turnaround' LP to go with several others I've had since then !!
