The Habs have just 2 regular-time wins in their first 16 games. We’re far from a playoff contender. The CH absolutely must increase its youth bank to eventually be a force in the NHL. It’s that simple. @JiCLajoie pic.twitter.com/oF7us3Wfsi

I don’t know about you, but since yesterday, I’ve been thinking back to the shows I went to, including the one at the FEQ this summer, and listening to their songs over and over again. It doesn’t change my listening habits much, though.
What we experienced yesterday was a landmark event. We’ll remember this great singer and his impact on Quebec. And with a Cowboys CD on the way, he won’t soon be forgotten.
That said, I don’t doubt it.

But it wasn’t just on the ice that the popular singer, who marked several whole generations of fans, was honored. He was also honored by RDS, which broadcast the Rocket game.
Let’s be clear: he was honored everywhere, not just at RDS. Well… everywhere in the French-speaking world, anyway.
This morning, proof of the 2 solitudes. The death of Karl Tremblay, cultural icon of the last 25 years in Quebec, is on the front page of every francophone newspaper distributed in Quebec. I’ve just scanned The Montreal Gazette, the Globe and Mail and the National Post, and there’s nothing…

But the heartfelt on-air tribute from François-Étienne Corbin and Stéphane Leroux, who knew the Cowboys singer well, was really on another level.
Before the Rocket game, the guys took the time to pay tribute to a friend. They could hardly contain their tears a few minutes after the official announcement of the singer’s death.
The two men recounted anecdotes about the Cowboys and clearly had a special relationship with the band’s singer, who became a friend.
Hats off to RDS, who let the guys talk about the Cowboys for long minutes before the Rocket game. And anyway, nobody’s head was in hockey, let’s face it.
It’s a must-listen for those who want anecdotes from this musical great.
