The Globe and Mail published “Remembering a Canadian troubadour” in the summer of 2000:
Stan Rogers would be 50 this summer — still the loudest voice in any room, no doubt, passionately committed to, well . . . something. He was that kind of guy. That booming voice was stilled in August of 1983, in the notorious Air Canada fire on the tarmac at Cincinnati, Ohio, when Rogers was only 33 but already recognized as one of the great Canadian singer-songwriters.
