'Enthusiasm Conquers All': a road trip for the Tragically Hip
The Tragically Hip, although never huge in the States, are national treasures in their native Canada. Those who get into the Hip's music -- like The Current's Jim McGuinn -- become fans for life. And now, as Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie faces a terminal brain cancer diagnosis, he and the band are lighting up arenas across Canada. So McGuinn and some friends are on their way to Winnipeg to see the Tragically Hip this Friday. And, as McGuinn explains, the connection runs even deeper than loyal fandom.
