Legendary Canadian Musician “Skip” Prokop Wings

I knew him. Loved Lighthouse. And Skip Prokop hosted a Sunday Morning Gospel show at CFNY during my last few years there.

Canada has lost one of its greatest musicians. Legendary “Skip” Prokop has died at the age of 74. The Hamilton, Ontario native was a driving force in Canada’s rock music surge with ‘The Paupers’ in 1969 but is best known for his drumming and co-founding ‘Lighthouse’ with Paul Hoffert. He also went on to a radio career in the GTA in the 2000’s. There are very few details on the circumstances of his passing at this time.
