Dan Fogelberg 1951-2007

Dan Fogelberg passed away yesterday after a long battle with prostate cancer.

In my college years, Dan Fogelberg was my absolute favorite artist. At that time I owned every album that he had put out, and wore more than one of them out playing them over and over. He was not only a great singer, but, a great song writer. He will be greatly missed…

Here’s a clip of him singing the song he was best known for.

    Fogelberg was one of those artists who could capture the commonplace and sing and tell it with elegance and grace.

    I agree with Lemuel. It’s sad that there doesn’t seem to be many songwriters like him anymore.

    I would not have seen you as a Dan Fogelberg fan. You learn something new every day!

    My goodness…Dan Fogelberg was my favorite artist when I was in college…hands down. I completely wore out my Netherlands LP. I also really loved Twin Sons of Different Mothers. It is indeed a very sad day. He is the only non-classical artist I’ve seen perform live more than once (except Liberace, of course). I really love that we have that in common, dahling.
