A tearful Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Gord Downie, the iconic lead singer of the Tragically Hip who died Tuesday, will be sorely missed.
Downie, the lyricist of the Canadian rock band, was dubbed the country's "unofficial poet laureate" by the CBC.
On Downie's songwriting, Rutledge says: "There's this absolute genius, this total brilliance and seriousness at the core of it, but there's always this sense of wry humour and sometimes it's over overt, but often it's subtle".
Last year Downie said he was suffering from an incurable and aggressive strain of brain cancer.
The Tragically Hip revealed the news of Gord's diagnosis on May 24, 2016; when the band announced a 15-show tour along with the sad prognosis for their frontman.
