Grateful We’re Not Dead has been maintaining a low profile so far this year. One of our own, Gord Breedyk, underwent some serious surgery and we’ve been waiting for him to recuperate. You can read about Gord’s ordeal at Prostate Cancer Personal Journey. This is certainly a worthwhile read for any man and for women concerned about what their partner may have to go through.
Gord has recuperated to the point where he can play his light weight travel guitar and of course, it didn’t effect his voice. The surgeon’s knife didn’t slip so we still don’t have anyone in the band who sounds like Emmylou Harris. As you can see by the calendar over there on the right, we’ve got a number of bookings for July. Actually, more than enough for us old guys. The gig in Seagrave entails a four hour drive and an overnight stay. We’ve been asked to play for this party for three years now and decided we better do it while we still can. It should be a lot of fun.
So that’s where we’ve been for the last few month’s. Not gone, just in-waiting.
Hope to see you somehwere soon.
A few years ago I set up a Grateful We’re Not Dead Facebook group which managed to attract a fair number of members. This week I received a notification that Facebook would be archiving groups that used the old group format and suggested that we move to the new group format. After due consideration I decided to set up a Grateful We’re Not Dead Facebook page. That done, it took less than 3 hours to get the 25 Fans required to register gratefulwerenotdead as the username for the page.
If you feel so inclined and have a Facebook account, drop by Grateful We’re Not Dead Facebook page, click the Like button and become a Fan.
See you over there,
Grateful We’re Not Dead would like to take a moment to wish everyone all the best for the festive season. We would also like to thank you for the support you have given the band’s fund raising efforts during 2010 for our favourite charitable causes. We hope to see you frequently during 2011.
from Al, Don, Gord and Bruce

P.S. Wouldn’t you like to find one of those boys wrapped up under your Christmas tree?
Welcome to the new, revised home of Grateful We’re Not Dead. Over the next few weeks we’ll be implementing a lot of new features including mp3 files, videos, lyrics, etc.
If you arrived here via a link in a search engine and could not find the page you expected to land on that is because all of the old pages have been deleted and new pages will be taking their place.
We hope you’ll drop by on a regular basis to see what we’re up to.
You have a good day now, ya hear.
