Anyone every read any of his books very interesting reads.  Love the part where he returns his awards.

His protest caught national attention when he sent back his six Junos accompanied by a letter to the board of Directors.


"Gentlemen:I am returning herewith the six Juno awards that I once felt honored to have received and which, I am no longer proud to have in my possession. As far as I am concerned you can give them to the border jumpers who didn't receive an award this year and maybe you can have them presented by Charley Pride. I feel that the Junos should be for people who are living in Canada, whose main base of business operations is in Canada, who are working toward the recognition of Canadian talent in this country and who are trying to further the export of such talent from this country to the world with a view to proudly showing off what this country can contribute to the world market. Until the academy appears to comply more closely with aspirations of this kind, I will no longer stand for any nominations, nor will I accept any award given. Yours very truly, Stompin' Tom Connors

Tom was one of my favourites and I seen him perform several times back east and in Alberta. As with most musicians Tom started out in high school auditoriums, bars and graduated to bigger arenas after his first hit (Bud the Spud) came out in 1970. His home base back in those days was the Horseshoe Tavern on Queen's Street, Toronto.
Of course being a fan I had to visit there and see the pictures and learn a little STC history. He wrote a song about the bar,



And yes, I got sloshed at the Horseshoe hotel!

I bought alot of his music, have an autograph or two and here is one of my favourites....


Rest in peace Stompin Tom, you will be missed and thanks for the music!
