A song for Owen, a show in Calgary


By MIKE D'AMOUR and OLIVER MICHALSKY -- Calgary Sun

Martha Hart is thrilled by a song dedicated to her late husband.

But she won't comment on the news the wrestling company Owen Hart died working for will be in Calgary only a few days after the first anniversary of his death.

"I would like to comment and I do have an opinion," said the widow of World Wrestling Federation superstar.

However, on the advice of her lawyer -- one of three involved in a lawsuit against the WWF and chairman Vince McMahon launched on behalf of Owen's dad, Stu, mother, Helen, and Martha -- she declined to comment.

The wrestler, who was also known as "The Blue Blazer" plunged to his death May 23 at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City while attempting a stunt entrance to the ring.

A WWF spokesman confirmed the show will be at the Saddledome on May 27.

While Hart's death touched people worldwide, only Greg Fishman of the Florida band Planetfish has written about it.

"I was saddened by the tragedy and it was a song inspired by that sadness," said Fishman, a 29-year-old former wrestler.

The song, We Still Need You Owen, will premiere in mid-February as a free, downloadable MP3 on the website MP3HotBox.com.
