Dan Fogelberg died this morning at 6am

{Click Title : " Same Old Land Syne" Dan Fogelberg concert 2003}

Dan Fogelberg died this morning at 6am , at home in Maine with his wife and family. He had a long battle with prostate cancer. He was only 56. So talented and so caring about people and the earth, such a good soul. He sang about things that all of us have been touched by, loss of love,finding love, and tender friendships, time wellspent, and shared. Namaste. Rest In Peace Dan.

Songs to Treasure ( All on YouTube) : Same Auld Syne,Dancing Shoes, Longer,Run For the Roses,These Days, Make Love Stay, and I am posting another one over on Enigma Cafe with a more personal longer post.....

Oh no! I didn't know until I read this. I've been in a news vacuum all day. I have worn out several of his albums on vinyl back when they were new. He was so young. R.I.P.

Scarecrow was my favorite of his songs. Wordsmith did a post on this today and he had it on YouTube.

Dan Fogelberg will be missed. Thanks for this post.

Truly a loss, very very sad, i love so many of his songs, Nexis is my ultimate favorite, Joni Mitchell is on background vocals and there is a fantastic rollicking, indiginous extended drum solo in it and it about embracing one's own heart and conquering fear.
