With the news of Gord Downie’s cancer diagnosis earlier this week, and the announcement that the Tragically Hip will embark on one final tour; I was reminded that The Spirit Of The West embarked on one final tour that ended in April of this year. John Mann, lead singer of Spirit Of The West was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 2 years ago, and much like the Tragically Hip, the band decided to do one final tour while they still could. A documentary was made about Spirit Of The West recently called Spirit Unforgettable, that tells the story of the band right up to the band’s final show. The documentary was released on April 30th, 2016 and will hit HBO Canada this summer. The video below is a TV segment talking about John Mann and the documentary Spirit Unforgettable.
