Hello Jim, Farewell Paul Quarrington
Definitely off the down troden path of pop music, the brilliant Paul Quarrington still reminds me that songwriting and the Canadian perspective is important and real. He was born in July, 1953 and in May of 2009, he got the sad news of being diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. On January 21, 2010, Paul Quarrington passed away at home in Toronto. The documentary of his work is encapsulated in the Bravo documentary Life in Music. So who was Paul Quarrington? He was a Canadian, a screenwriter, a playwright, a singer, a novelist, a musician, an educator, a creator.
