#124110 The Beatles Discography Project

Posted by Farottone on September 27, 2015 - 11:20 AM

This project aims at releasing the complete Beatles discography, full band. Anybody is welcome to contribute, but these will be the rules everyone contributing will be asked to follow:

1) Quality of releases will be C3 levels, which means songs will need all C3 requirements and only those. For those who are not aware of C3 requirements because they are independent authors we will either take care of polishing the charts up or instructing them on how to do it depending on volume of work.

2) Contributions, WIPs and final CONs will not be shared to the public until we are ready to release according to the schedule we will set for ourselves. That means that no single song will be released individually if we decide to release full albums only and no albums will be released individually if we decide to release the entire discopgraphy at once.

3) "Claims" are timed: if you claim some part of this project to work on, we will be very happy, but it will be good for 30 days. :) After that time we can decide to give you more time but by default your claim will be dropped and anybody else can work on it. Please understand that this is necessary to keep a solid schedule. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

4) Contributions are subject to vetting. We can not guarantee all you do will be used, it's conditional to how well it's done, how much time we would need to fix it, etc. We will work hard to fix your content if it needs fixing but please know that we might say "thank you very much but we can't use it" in some cases. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

5) Your contributions are final. If a girl named Yoko tells you you're too good for this project, all you've delivered will belong to the project and will be used (with proper crediting of course). Please understand that no exception will be made: if you commit to release something and deliver it, you can't take it back. It's nothing personal, see point 6.

6) No one is greater than the project. Once we commit to this, our objective is to release the discography. If you feel like your contributions will be more important than the final objective please don't contribute.

For more information stay tuned, for now this is a quick placeholder to let people post in the right place, after End of Days we will revisit everything.

#1000035181 C3thon Day 30, spot 3 - C3thon Finale!

Posted by Farottone on November 23, 2017 - 06:07 PM

30 days, 90 releases, one beautiful cause

Forty C3 authors come together to ask the help of the community to make childrens wishes come true in the first ever customs marathon

C3 is a group of passionate Rock Band players that was born in the aftermath of Harmonix bidding goodbye to Rock Band 3 DLC releases in April 2013. We wanted to keep the interest in the game alive by providing new weekly content and at the same time protecting Harmonix original work by not allowing distribution of any official produced content or copies of that content.

When Rock Band 4 was in development it was also our privilege, through the amazing work of C3 Founder espher and the interest from the management at Harmonix, to contribute to the renewed interest in the game by producing all harmonies for legacy content that was not yet supporting them.

We love the work of Harmonix and on a daily basis we encourage people to buy content for Rock Band 4 and Rock Band 3 and we are proud to do so. Now that Rock Band 4 with its Rivals expansion has garnered an amazing following, Rock Band 3 has a niche but passionate audience of people who play Rock Band 4 and buy content for that game but still come back to the old platform to play keys and to enjoy some great user generated content.

And its for that audience and for everyone who loves the game that today we announce a new initiative that we hope will get as much support as possible. C3thon is a 30 day customs marathon with the goal of raising as much money as we can for a good cause. Over the 30 days leading up to Christmas, 40 C3 authors will tag each other in and out to release content every 8 hours every day from Friday, November 24th to Sunday, December 24th. The community will receive a new release (singles, packs or albums) from a different author 3 times a day.

Here is the kicker: for every song you download that you would have downloaded even if you had to pay for it, we ask you to donate 90 cents to the cause that we have chosen, the Make-a-Wish foundation. Make-a-Wish*helps children and kids fight against life threatening diseases by granting their wishes, giving them the strength and the will to overcome their illnesses. This is a fully fledged honor system: if you can donate were infinitely grateful, and if you cant you are free to download as many songs as you want. Every single donation though will help us reach a bigger goal and help people who need our support.

The following is extremely important: money goes directly to the Make-a-Wish foundation without us putting a finger on it. Donations are collected by the foundation itself using the RallyBound platform. This is crucial to us: we have chosen Make-a-Wish specifically because they have their own collection system and we are not involved in any way in that part of the process. Make-a-Wish is an excellent foundation, rated very highly on Charity Navigator if you want to check it. You dont have to trust anybody else with your money: we have no part in collecting donations at all, we are only here to raise awareness and ask for your help.

During the month of November up to the 24th we will release more information on the initiative, including some special events we have planned and we look forward to a huge turnout. We will also introduce you to the amazing group of authors who signed up for this project with a passion that cannot be overstated. For now, just know that you should start saving up because were going to give you plenty of reasons to donate!
* We are in no way affiliated or partnered with Make-a-Wish, we only set up a fund raising for them.

#62465 C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 [01/25/18]

Posted by TrojanNemo on April 29, 2013 - 04:06 PM


A collection of tools to create new CON files, modify existing CON files, combine multiple CON files into packs, edit existing packs of CON files, visualize a song's information, convert CON files to Phase Shift, Wii and PS3 format, and much more. Also works with LIVE files.

This was inspired by Le Fluffie, and it became Le Fluffie for RB3, then Le Fluffie C3, and so many versions and features later, we are now calling it C3 CON Tools.

Updated change log with latest features and changes can be found here:
C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 - Features & Changes

Unless you're coming from a really old version of C3 CON Tools, you should extract these files over your existing installation so no settings or important files are lost. DO NOT INSTALL IN PROGRAM FILES.
C3 CON Tools v4.0.0 - WinRAR archive [mod note: extract the files with an archiver like WinRAR]

(this is a bit outdated but still very helpful if you've never used C3 CON Tools before)
If you intend to use these tools, you should really spend the hour and watch this tutorial video below:

Microsoft .NET 4

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010

32-bit Java Runtime (if you use the PS3 Converter)

Norton Antivirus is a piece of crap software that insists on relying on reputation values for programs to determine if they are high risk (potential malware/virus) and removes them. It might tell you that about C3 CON Tools. You decide whether I'm trying to give you a virus or not. You can have Norton ignore that one file or just change AV to something less shitty :)

I hope you're as excited to use this as we are to share it with you.

#1000044207 C3 Generations: Customs Creators Compilation

Posted by Bansheeflyer on September 15, 2018 - 07:32 AM



You've heard the songs. You've known the authors. You've downloaded the customs. You've played the hits, deep cuts, and everything in between. You've known C3 as the go-to for the biggest, best, and most diverse plethora of amazing customs created by our very talented members from the small one-off singles to the massive projects and events. Now we're bringing you a new way to experience customs.


Fellow patrons of C3, we bring you C3 Generations: Customs Creators Compilation, a box set compilation featuring authors (and artists) from around the world!


We have no doubt that you are anxious to begin experiencing the new compilation created by our awesome charters but first we'd like to give credit where credit is due:




The C3 Contributors are the main authors who released the songs. This list does not take into account the many co-authors who helped chart these great songs. A huge shout-out to all the collaborators who made this happen!


This is an incredible undertaking by all who participated in the project and a huge thanks goes out to all who helped bring this project to life. C3 really has one of the best communities out there and everyone here deserves to be recognized.


Without further delay here is the box set fully available for all of you to enjoy!

#1000042816 C3 neXt generation

Posted by Farottone on July 16, 2018 - 05:58 PM


The biggest revolution in custom songs releases since 2013 launches September 21st and brings together the entire community

More than 5 years ago, C3 revolutionized the world of user generated content with a stream of commercial grade weekly content that lasted for 2 and a half years. We launched that project with a simple tag line: "On April 9th 2013, everything changes". C3 retired as a release group after Rock Band 4 was launched, almost 3 years ago, leaving fans wanting more content but with a thriving authoring community growing and creating amazing projects. Today we are excited to announce that the thrill of weekly released content is back with the biggest community project since April 9th 2013: everything changes again, C3 is going neXt generation!

"C3 neXt generation is a collective effort with our entire community of authors to reboot weekly content and keep players and authors alike engaged week in and week out"

Legacy C3 is something that can't be brought back: it was a unique experience for a unique time, when Harmonix had stopped releasing DLC. That's why C3X will work in a slightly different way. Content will not be released as a group, rather we will welcome under the community umbrella any author who wants to join in. We will work with them to help them get better if they need and we will screen their work to bring to the public good, functioning, proper content, but ultimately authors will be responsible for the quality of their releases. To reach the widest audience possible, we will not limit ourselves to Rock Band 3 releases but we will also release for Clone Hero/Phase Shift, and we'll be discussing with Clone Hero's best charters a way to join together for a collaborative effort.

No more releases: we tour the world!
The most exciting part of an already incredibly thrilling project is that we're gonna take you on a tour! No more weekly "releases": C3X is going to be a series of amazing tours! In every tour (that will last for months, up to a year), every week is a tour date. Authors will choose which venue* will host their set to reflect the content of the setlist. Alternative niche songs? The venue might be a pub. Mainstream content? It's a stadium! Tour legs will be announced in advance with all venues and you can try to guess what's coming up based on locations. Every tour also has explosive kickoff and last show events!
That's not all: watch out for special events like festivals, that span over several days, and holidays. And to add awesomeness to awesomeness, check out the tour dates and guess what the setlist will be for each date by reading the hints we hand out outside the concert! The Tour concept will keep both authors and players entertained giving a unique new touch to the customs community.

September 15th: the album that started it all is coming out!
If you've been with us lately you already know about the huge news: C3 Generations. 100 songs divided in 10 records from the most diverse assortment of community authors ever put together. That "studio release" will kickoff C3X with a bang! Authors are already working overtime to deliver amazing content for that project that is sure to make our first tour a huge success! And while assembling this 100-song beauty, we have already secretly selected so many amazing hits from the incredible assortment of songs that were submitted for the project. All authors involved in Generations that had more songs than the ones selected, or no songs at all, will get their chance to shine with the Tour!

So much more is in the works...
With this announcement we have barely scratched the surface of what we are working on. Both the Tour and other C3X related activities have so much more going on than we announced and we couldn't be more excited about everything we are putting together. We already discussed and planned more features for the Tour and for X in general and we can't wait to tell you all about it. The neXt generation of rhythm gaming authoring begins in September and it will transform our world forever!


You're a player: now what?
Right now you need to do possibly the hardest thing ever: wait! But during these 2 months we will also drop news on C3X, on the Tour and everything, so we can promise you it's going to be a fun summer! So much stuff is going on behind the scenes and we only announced a portion of it, so stay tuned!

You're an author: now what?
This is the most exciting time to be an author since a handful of people founded C3 in 2013! Behind-the-scenes work has already begun to lay a path for the future and we need YOU to make it happen! Jump on our Discord right away and contact one of the following C3X admins to join:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident (all booked!)
  • Mr. Cellophane

They will tell you all about what we need from you and what you will get for being part of this exciting new adventure in the next few weeks. We're gonna help you grow as an author if you need help, connect with the players base and deliver amazing content.

But wait, who's working on C3X?
Current C3X Management is:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Farottone
  • Ghostbyob
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident
  • Mr. Cellophane
  • Septekka

During the next months and years we will work to build an even stronger group to create more and more events and develop new ideas!

So, who's ready to go on the ultimate Tour? On September 21st everything changes... again!

*No, they're not in-game venues, they are real life venues where an author's setlist virtually takes place








1st update: Discover the Tour concept!

#1000011194 NSW1-6's WIP/Progress Thread

Posted by nsw1-6 on July 8, 2016 - 11:49 PM

Hello, nsw1-6 here! Around July 2016 I finally decided to lay out a WIP thread to keep my progress details separate, and not clutter my main thread. Most information here will regard tempo mapping, fretting, and individual instrument progress. My work is currently done using Edits On Fire, but I've moved to Reaper for finalizing charts. I'm also getting assistance from other members here to prepare full-band customs for RB3.
PLEASE notify me of anything that has been done already in FULL BAND. I will be on the lookout as well. All my charts will be Guitar/Bass/ProDrums/Vox, depending on instrument availability. ProKeys and Harmonies will be typically added. ProGuitar/ProBass are done in rare circumstances. These are authored EoF first, and then they will be prepared for RB3/C3 in Reaper.
You can also tell me to pick up the pace on something as well. Demand must be met with supply!
Nothing - Announced on a pack list, but have not started anything with it yet, talk to me if you want to do it or are already working on it and I'll concede.
Syncing - Currently in the process of tempo mapping this chart
Synced - I've tempo-mapped this song and began work on instruments, (Rough) qualifier means a rough job has been done and still need to finish it. Doing a map roughly helps me speed up work on grid-snapped instruments.
Finalizing/Keys - All the base instruments that are my responsibility are done, but the ETA (estimate time of arrival) depends on if I handed it off to someone or am doing it myself. It's at this stage I finalize vocals, and add ProKeys and Harmonies.
FIXING - Chart previously released by me, but being fixed at the moment (most likely this means I'm fixing the tempo-map). Also used if I'm upgrading a chart that I know needs fixing.
To be upgraded / Upgrading - A chart of this song previous exists, either here or on the FoF Forums and I am going to do or currently doing tempo map fixes or adding instruments.
(Laid out) - IDEAS ONLY: Means that I have songs listed that I'm interested in doing for a pack, but haven't started or willing to announce yet

G - Guitar
B - Bass
V - Lead Vocals / HARM1

H - Harmonies

PD - ProDrums
PG - ProGuitar
PB - ProBass
PK - ProKeys
Partial Collab - I am working with someone, (un)specified, where they will be doing chart checking, adding venues, helping with conversion, reductions, all the little bits, or in some cases adding ProKeys.
Collab - I am working with one or more people on something, and they will be contributing instruments
Current Focus:
This be the artists I am currently focusing on. Their stuff is more likely to be released first, but I may work on other things in the background. Should be updated every month or two.

These mostly still exist as ideas, except for upgrades, which mine previously existed as Prodrum charts from FoF. Let me know if you are already working on something and I will gladly remove stuff. I'll be on the look out as well.

Happy The Man Tracks from first two albums (some rough tempo maps)

Relayer little known prog band from Texas, released one album in 1977

Talking Heads (More tracks from Remain In LightSpeaking In TonguesLittle CreaturesTrue Stories and Naked)

U2 (Tracks from Achtung Baby, BoyZooropa, Songs Of Innocence, and The Unforgettable Fire)

Styx (Various Pyx from '72-'83, main focus on Styx II up to Pieces Of Eight, 20+ songs in mind)  (Several rough tempo mapped)

Phish More tracks from their albums (Requested)
Journey (More tracks from '77-'83)

Canterbury Scene Band with 3 albums and some good tunes. (Some ideas laid out)

Red Hot Chili Peppers Stadium Arcadium Leftover pack (OLD IDEA from 2009, ~10+ songs planned)
King Crimson Full Band Upgrades/Fixes of songs released by Oscarj08/Sideshow and myself, some new ones
Jazz/Fusion (Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, CHASE, and others)
Eloy (Drum Project upgrades, tracks from 73-79, including all of Ocean)

A number of Elbow tracks (Neat Little Rows, Forget Myself, maybe some more)

Some misc. tracks lying around, from over the years

ELO (Songs from ELO2, On The Third Day, and Eldorado)

Ideas floating around:
Things I'm thinking of doing in the future, but not working on for a long time, which you can certainly request for me to do sooner. In no particular order.

Anderson/Stolt (Music from the album, seems cool)

Nine Inch Nails - Songs from BrokenDownward SpiralThe Fragile, and maybe Year Zero
Magma (unsure about this one, still listening to their body of work)

Regarding Files:
I understand that most of this forum works with Rock Band customs, but please understand that most of my work is prepared for FoFiX/PhaseShift. I'm beginning to learn to use Reaper, but I am still comfortable and skilled with using Edits on Fire, which automatically creates the midis for Rock Band separately. Base work will be done in EoF first, then sent through Reaper for finalizing. Anything I'm too lazy to finish will be converted to RB3 by others.
Regarding Audio Sourcing and Quality:
In the past, I have had complaints about audio quality, and knowing that this being a more professional forum, there are higher standards to quality.
Please understand that nearly half of my music collection is taken from used vinyl records, all of which come from by-gone eras, and includes a lot of the music I intend to chart. Every vinyl I possess has been cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and digitally transferred using Audacity with click and noise removal applied. The degree of success on this depends on the quality of the medium (i.e. the amount of scratching, roughness and skipping). Thankfully a good portion of this music has come from my parents' collection, who took really good care of their records.
Hence, most of my records are free of terrible quality, though I have had cases of really bad copies (Journey's Infinity, Traffic's Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys), cases of copies that could be better (Jethro Tull's Aqualung, Yes' Going For The One and Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway), and cases where I need to redo the digital conversion (Vangelis' Albedo 0.39 and a few others). The only other issue here is the effect on the tempo, which can be due to the mastering on the record itself.
If I have determined (or asked by others) that the vinyl source is bad enough, then I will try to find another source for the audio, or anyone here on the forum is free to help provide it. To give warning and compensate for any of these issues sourcing information for each song / pack released will be included, and any additional modifications made.
Regarding File Quality:
My charting abilities have evolved over the years, ranging from not fretting enough (long ago), to about 2012-2013 when I was over-charting. It was only since mid-2015 that I really started to hone on what was being played. This is directly related to training my ears, but believe me, I have noticed that the biggest culprit here can be the mixing quality.
My methods of tempo-mapping have changed as well, again only recently starting to really ensure that it is done properly. I was able to chart fast and properly for a while, but I found that it really depends on how tight the musicians stick to the tempo. Sometimes charts were worked over a period of time, and some packs may include songs where I did not go back and fix the tempo maps to be as pristine (i.e. the Kansas pack, see notes for other songs in WIP Thread).

#1000045644 C3X Thanksgiving Festival, Day 1: The Dismemberment Plan

Posted by Nolan on November 22, 2018 - 05:11 PM

"Emergency & I" Album Pack


The Dismemberment Plan is a band that truly has a sound of their own -- an impressive and rare honor that cannot be said about many groups. I first uncovered this indie rock group from Washington D.C. over the summer and have very quickly grown to appreciate their incredible music. Today, let's kick off the Thanksgiving Festival by completing their most well-known and highly acclaimed album, 1999's Emergency & I.


I originally charted the full album as one track only for drums, as drums are the standout instrument in most of the songs, but thanks to yaniv297, GreenPanda12, and Meta123, all tracks from the album can now be played individually on any instrument!


Please note that any minor errors in the chart preview videos are most likely fixed in the downloadable versions of the tracks.



"A Life of Possibilities" (vocals: yaniv297)



The album starts on an off-kilter and sudden note, with a fat, synthesized bass sound, weird and jumpy falsetto, and a strange drum beat. Despite this, the opening track is fantastic, especially when it all comes together at the end.



"Memory Machine" (vocals: yaniv297)



The album's second track features the first of many phenomenal choruses on Emergency & I, from the keyboards to the disco beat on drums. It's a more energized and anxious track than the first while still managing to be a very cool song.



"What Do You Want Me to Say?" (vocals: GreenPanda12)



Perhaps the most accessible and straight-forward song on the album, this absolute anthem is a straight-up banger that anybody could probably get down with. The groovy bass in the verses, the belting vocals in the choruses, and the tremolo tension in the bridge put this together as an all-around bop and certainly a standout entry-level track.



"Spider in the Snow" (vocals: yaniv297)



Who knew loneliness and depression could be so beautiful? The more fast-paced and personal vocals on this slower and calmer track tie in the themes of the album very well, and the recurring keys during the choruses make it sound even more complete.



"The Jitters" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



It's fitting for an outcast-like track to sound awkward and cumbersome, and that's exactly the case here. There may not be much variety instrumentally on this one, but it perfectly encapsulates that off-kilter yet beautiful sound that goes with the song so well.



"I Love a Magician" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



In stark contrast to the last track, this one is all over the place. The frantic vocals and drums as well as the jumpy bass make this a nervously charged song that keeps you on your toes.



"You Are Invited" (vocals: yaniv297)



Definitely the most basic track on the album instrumentally, as it has only light guitar work, programmed drums, and vocals for the vast majority of it. That big chorus when everything comes together and the whole band gets to play, though? Totally awesome. Totally worth it. Bassists can feel free to leave after the second chorus on this one ;)



"Gyroscope" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



Perhaps the most obvious use of time signature tomfoolery on the album, this fast-paced and fun track has complex rhythms that keep it interesting throughout. The drums and vocals are punchy and the guitar gets a little hectic in the choruses, adding to the fun.



"The City" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



Absolutely one of their most iconic and well-known tracks (despite the lack of a bass part), and for good reason. The keys riff is instantly catchy and gives the song a great hook, the drums are very tricky and have a complex, unorthodox beat for the majority of the song, and the vocals are not only introspective and touching but also impressive in range. The second the very first notes on guitar play, this song sets a tone of excellence that it only builds on.



"Girl O'Clock" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



Pure chaos. That's what this song is -- unadulterated, unrestricted, unchained chaos. The incessant stuttering and frantic ohs on vocals make the song sound panicked, frantic, and worried. The guitar has some very strange segments towards the beginning and end. And of course, the drums are insane. When you aren't having to cross under to hit the toms in the main hi-hat beat, you'll be juggling around a very quick and varied disco beat, trying to keep up. It's extremely fun once you get the hang of it, though! Maybe don't play this one for a huge, unexpecting crowd though. 



"8½ Minutes" (vocals/pro keys: yaniv297)



There really nothing quite like the end of the world, is there? Although "8½ Minutes" isn't actually, well, 8½ minutes long, it still packs quite a punch. Every instrument here has something of note, with the ever-underappreciated keys even getting a pretty cool solo. Once again, maybe don't play this one in front of the whole family.



"Back and Forth" (vocals: GreenPanda12, pro keys: Meta123)




And here we are the album's final song. It's by far the most repetitive track instrumentally -- guitar, bass, and drums basically hover around the same pattern for most of the track -- but it's a damn good one in its own right. It just sounds triumphant and as if it's pushing forward the whole time, and it's a lyrical masterpiece. Especially that last verse, man.


I hope you all enjoy this album even a fraction of as much as I do! If you would like to download the entire album as a pack (rather than individual songs), you can do so here.

#1000045486 C3X World Tour, Week 9: P3: Pop-Punk Pack

Posted by FUGGNUTZ on November 16, 2018 - 06:24 AM

This week, C3X is visiting The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. The first three performances in this Pop-Punk extravaganza are brought to you by FUGGNUTZ:




C3X Week 9 - P3: Pop-Punk Pack


Panic at the Disco is a bit of a stretch to call Pop-Punk, but their earliest work incorporates many of the hallmarks of the genre with the band's own personal style. The Only Difference was the band's first single, and it's about them getting big. Kinda funny to think about, but one single later, their wish was fulfilled.




New Found Glory is basically the sound of modern Pop-Punk. Their style influenced so many other bands that came after them. In 2004, the band scored one of their biggest hits in All Downhill From Here. The first single off of their album Catalyst, it's one of the band's most joyous songs.




Cartel isn't as popular as Panic at the Disco or New Found Glory, but they found their place in the realm of Pop-Punk in 2005 when they released their biggest hit, Honestly. A song about the singer's ex-girlfriend and his feelings about their relationship, it's one that's easy to get stuck in your head.


This next song is brought to you by MrPrezident:




40 years ago, Richard Hell & the Voidoids cut a masterpiece with "Blank Generation" a song that is without any doubt, the quintessential punk anthem.  Inspired by the Rimbaud poem "A Season in Hell", young Richard Meyers moved to New York to become a beat poet and instead became a punk rock legend, known for forming punk-rock prototypes Neon Boys (1968), who later became the band Television (1973) until he recruited guitarists Robert Quine and Ivan Julian, and drummer Marc Bell and formed the Voidoids (Marc would shortly reinvent himself as the one and only Marky Ramone).


The Voidoids were the punk rock trend setters of the 70's.  They were the among first punk bands to adopt stage names, Richard Hell kept the monikker thoughout the remainder of his recording career.  They were the first to rip their clothes and pin them back together.  The first to spike their hair.  Richard Hell was the King of Manhattan's lower east side for over a decade.  But as for being the voice of a ___ generation, Hell says "I can take it or leave it".


I hope you enjoy this pack as much as I enjoyed making it!

#1000044935 C3X World Tour, Special Event: The Hippening

Posted by MrPrezident on October 17, 2018 - 06:36 PM









FEBRUARY 6TH, 1964 - OCTOBER 17, 2017






Gordon Edgar Downie was one of the most riveting and mystifying performers in rock'n'roll history. 


Video clips don't do justice to the energy in the room generated by a performer who communicated more with a flick of the finger than anyone else's high kicks.  This was apparent to all who watched his final farewell during the CBC's broadcast of The Tragically Hip's final concert at the K-Rock Center in Kingston, Ontario, the band's beloved hometown.  This was merely six months after he had been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.




Downie was born on Feb. 6, 1964, in Amherstview, Ont., just slightly west of Kingston, to Lorna and Edgar, a travelling salesman turned real estate developer. Gord was the fourth of five children: older siblings Mike, Charlyn and Paula, and younger brother Patrick. Gord played goalie for Amherstview’s hockey team, which won a provincial B-level championship. His godfather was Harry Sinden, who was then a real-estate developer with Edgar, and who would go on to become the Stanley Cup-winning coach of the Boston Bruins and lead Team Canada to victory in the 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union.



No matter how opaque or directly critical of Canadian history he may have been, Downie faced a sea of literal flag-waving at almost every single show—especially at shows not on Canadian soil. He took it in stride: if part of his poetry’s appeal was that he rarely telegraphed direct meaning, he had to accept the fact that fans were going to read whatever they wanted into what he said.





Downie passed away on the night of Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, with his children and family by his side, according to a statement released by the band.
