I always thought he was a Newfie, but after listening to this I realize that his accent is pretty much exactly the same as all my dad’s relatives (who live in rural Ontario).

Also, quite sad. He had a great sense of humour, and a good ear for a catchy tune.

Love Stompin’ Tom. I swear, you’re the only person who didn’t post “The Hockey Song” today. Not that I don’t like “The Hockey Song,” mind you.

RIP, Tom. Canada is a little less Canadian tonight.

Only a guy like Tom could sing songs like “Margo’s Got the Cargo” and “The Hockey Song”!for a room full of irony-laden university students and have us stomping and begging for more. Not an inauthentic bone in his body.

One of the best. He’ll be missed.

@Mitchell.

I think you got it there. His music was simple and dated. But it was truly authentic. The fans love for him wasn’t even the ironic love that we have for polka bands in October or Irish drinking tunes in March.

Listen to the Hawk talk about sharing a show Stompin Tom http://www.cbc.ca/player/Shows/ID/2341191252/

I’ve never heard of Stompin’ Tom Collins before, but after that video, I can tell that this is a crying shame. From the Southeast, you have my deepest condolences. Hail and farewell, Mr. Collins.

Not to be nitpicky, Kaisius, but it’s Stompin’ Tom CONNORS. A Stompin’ Tom Collins would be a hell of a drink, though.

D’ooooooh! My apologizes. I’m a teetotaller myself, so I don’t know how I managed that.
