Friends, peers and associates share stories and personal grief on the loss of Dallas Good who died Feb. 17, at age 48.
It’s impossible to condense the rich and extensive catalogue of the late Dallas Good and The Sadies into 10 songs, but if you don’t know the band, I hope this is a place to start. There will never be another band like them, and they leave a legacy that deserves to be recognized by the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
