Stan Rogers, 1949 to 1983

I remember the day Stan Rogers died in 1983: it was big news in my hometown of Carlisle because Rogers was born in nearby Hamilton, and all the radio stations covered it. What I didn’t know is that he was only 33 years old when he died. Amazing that someone who died so young could leave such a musical legacy.

I’d forgotten too that he died not in a small plane crash, like many musicians do, but of smoke inhalation on Air Canada flight from Houston to Toronto, along with 22 other passengers.
