A gorgeous piece John!
Great song John. I’ve got a copy of Murray McLauchlan’s book “Getting Out of Here Alive”. He says his song “Hard Rock Town” was about Sudbury.
Sudbury makes sense. The towns I was writing about are the tiny ones that grow up around mines. A lot of them disappear when the mine closes. The mine in Manitouwadge closed and the population dropped from 3,000 to less than a 1,000 – you can buy a detached house there for $50k, but you better bring the money with you.
That’s a great song John! Well played! 👏👏👏
My Dad started working as a miner when he was young.
He ended up going to the Haileybury School of Mines and learned to be a manager.
That song resonates with me
Great song John!!!
