Edmund Fitzgerald

Growing up on Lake Erie, I heard the story of 'The Edmund Fitzgerald', a freighter that sank in
Lake Superior on November 10,1975, killing all 29 crew members on board.
Afterwards, Gordon Lightfoot, a prolific Canadian singer/songwriter wrote an amazing and haunting song about it.
It has always been one of my  favorite songs.



Happy Flashback Friday y'all!

NOT entirely true. I alone survived.

HEFF: The song or the story? Both?

BT: That explains a lot! ;D
