Terminal 5 says…

  A surprising call from Bruce Allen started it all. On his advice, I scheduled a meeting with Gord. I believe it was the summer of 2005. It was agreed that Gord would make the very long trip from Toronto to the little town of Paia, on the north shore of Maui, where I live. We met for lunch at The Fish Market for one of their famous fish burgers and had a great conversation about life, kids, surfing and The Hip. He gave me the first book (always a good sign) and a cd of some ideas the hip had been throwing around. He had asked me about "Jaws", the famous tow-in surfbreak, so we took a drive to Huelo to stare out at the famous wave that really gets big, maybe 6 times a year (the north swells don't come til the winter). Later that evening, I visited the ohana he was staying at, on the east side of Paia Bay. Gord sang and played some other ideas and we continued our conversation. It became clear that this was going to be a very different record for The Hip.
