    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy of this book - all opinions are my own. Michael Barclay completely blew me away with this book. It would be a disservice to pigeonhole this as a biography about the Tragically Hip - yes the focus of the book is the Hip, ...

    Since there are not many books on the Canadian band The Tragically Hip, this is the book to have about one of the most underrated bands in music, especially in Canadian Music. The book is almost 500 pages, and covers everything about the band , from the early bar days of the members ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book. As someone who has had an on-again off-again relationship with the band, it was fascinating to read about some of the background behind the band forming, and the recording of their albums. The interview snippets from the people surrounding the band were e...

    I liked The Never-Ending Present, but didn't quite love it. Given the combination of author and subject, however, I was expecting to love it, which left me feeling oddly disappointed. It's certainly a good read, and Barclay writes the hell out of his topics, but interspersing vaguely t...

    This is a great read. It gives insight into the development of the band from high school all the way through their career. One can see why Gord was special. He was special in such an ordinary way. Simple kindness. I loved reading this. ...

    Too big of an info dump, and the lack of band input made me uncomfortable. ...

    Since there are not many books on the Canadian band The Tragically Hip, this is the book to have about one of the most underrated bands in music, especially in Canadian Music. The book is almost 500 pages, and covers everything about the band , from the early bar days of the members ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book. As someone who has had an on-again off-again relationship with the band, it was fascinating to read about some of the background behind the band forming, and the recording of their albums. The interview snippets from the people surrounding the band were e...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher --- The biography of ?Canada?s band? In the summer of 2016, more than a third of Canadians tuned in to watch what was likely the Tragically Hip?s fina...

    This is a great read. It gives insight into the development of the band from high school all the way through their career. One can see why Gord was special. He was special in such an ordinary way. Simple kindness. I loved reading this. ...

    Too big of an info dump, and the lack of band input made me uncomfortable. ...
