Does anyone know how you find out about the bands personal lives? Are they married? Kids? Educationl background? I'd like to know more about that stuff too.

Initially, I thought of the hip as a corny canadian band that would end up in mediocrity. But to my surprise, they excelled beyond my expectation and surpassed all boundries set by me. I caught on with "Fully Completely" and never looked away. I then rumaged the archives with "little bones" and "twist my arm"(no pun intended) with the feeling that I missed out on a movement worth taking attention of. Since "Fully" I bought and wore all CD's produced by them. I regret the fact that I missed out on a whole generation of whole hearted music ignored by me. Now with "Silver Jet" blaring on the radio and "Poets" still in my mind I am glad I am with the hip till the end of this trip of destiny.

i first started listening to the hip with the "trouble at the henhouse" album, at first i didnt like it, then i met a friend that introduced me to "up to here". i was immidiatly taken with it and i never looked back, the hip have become an essential part of my day and i hope they continue to make music for many more years to come.

I live approximately 50 miles from Kingston where all the members were born & raised in Potsdam, New York. I am a loyal "HIP" follower!!!!! Their music is a one of a kind to me for they sing and stand for what how of us "Northerners" live. All I listen to is "HIP". Why? Because their music is the only music I like? No, because their music is a part of me! My girlfriend and I were able to see them in Burligton, Vt this past winter from the front row and what a show!!!!! What pictures!!!! Gord posed for us and sang to my girlfriend and it's a show I will never forget. I look forward to hearing from all the other fans.
May the "HIP" be with you,

For a trivia music assignment, on TH's UP to Here album, the song "38 Years" talks about a tragedy that befalls 2 members of the family of whom?

I had never once purchased an album by any artist. Then one day I heard the song "Courage" in my friends car. I have since bought the whole collection of The Tragically Hip's music. Gordon Downie is a genius in every sense. Little things that he sings are so simple yet have so much meaning, for example " everyone's got their breaking point, with me it's spiders and with you it's me" (Thugs). Everybody in the band are awesome musicains and work well together. I will continue to be a loyal hip fan and I encourage everybody who hasn't discovered them yet to give them a try! Laura- 15

I first heard of the Hip when my Canadian born husband insisted that I had been missing out not hearing them and other Canadian rock living in the States. Oddly enough, I first saw them live in Denver, CO at a small theater venue. We took the kids and it was awesome. Lots of Canadian flags in the audience :) Even though I hate to admit it, he was raight about something. I love this band! I am shocked that they don't have a prolific record deal that splashes them all over the American pop culture like mad. Gordon Downie has an amazing voice and style that can't be duplicated. My husband went out and bought Up To Here and brought it to the hospital for me to listen to while I was in labour with our son. I would love to see them in a larger venue here in Canada.

If anyone has a chance to go see The Hip on their tour right now - don't hesitate and get your tickets now! I just saw them on November 23rd here in Winnipeg and it was the best Hip concert I have ever been to. I have loved these guys for the last 12 years of my life and they have only gotten better with age. Gordie never ceases to amaze me... his energy alone could have lit up the entire city. They had us all on our feet for the entire show, including 3 encores and we were still begging for more. If you are any kind of a Hip fan, you don't want to miss this show!!

The Tragically Hip are one of the most underrated bands to ever garner such a huge cult following. In Canada, these guys are practically gods of the rock and roll scene, but in the rest of the world, they are but an incidental blip on the radar. Which, in a way, is totally OK. Why else would Canadians have a reason to love them so much, if not for their incredibly catchy and cognizant rock style and the ability to say "hey, this is OUR band. Leave them alone". Nobody's ever tried to exploit them, and they've never tried to put themselves In View (pun intended) of the international celebrity scene. No, The Tragically Hip (and their ever-flamboyantly literate and dramatic front man, Gordon Downie), decide instead to fly under the radar and thrill the great white north one audience at a time. Who cares if they haven't gotten some overtly extravagant recognition in the States? With these guys killing it province by province, year by year, who needs 'em?
