Redux: Rogers and Sainte-Marie

Stan Rogers

The original: I wrote about Stan Rogers as a national treasure.

The follow-up: On CBC’s Q, Tom Power interviews Stan’s brother, Garnet, about his new memoir about their life on tour. The unvarnished version. It’s a good reminder that even our treasures aren’t perfect. Nor need they be.

Want more? Garnet’s book, “Night Drive,” is available here.

Buffy Sainte-Marie

The original: I wrote about Buffy Sainte-Marie as a national treasure.

The follow-up: Again, Tom Power from CBC’s Q interviewed Buffy.

Thanks to Jim Robertson for alerting me to the Garnet Rogers interview.

    I heard part of the interview with Garnet Rogers the other day on Q. Very interesting and worthwhile listen. Warts and all.

      Tom – Yes, it was all news to me, although the one time I saw Stan and the band in concert (at a small venue in Saskatoon a few years before he died), I daw Stan talking to someone who had showed up to sell his CDs. Not unreasonably, Stan figured that was their prerogative. They worked something out, but it got a wee bit intense. I thought of that as I listened to Garnet talking about being afraid and even hungry most of the time.
