A tribute to Dan Fogelberg...

This is some really bad news. I didn't know Dan Fogelberg, one of the best singers and songwriters EVER, had cancer. Now he is gone. Today. I just found out, and went immediately to his website.

Here are a link to some clips of the songs you might remember.

The songs will come right back to you listening to these clips. I will have to turn on the nightly news tonight and see if they mention him. They should, because I think he's way up there with the best.

His songs are about real feelings... about real relationships... about real pain... about things that are hard to talk about.

Dan Fogelberg dared to talk about the things other people hid away - - and sang about the journey of life using some of the most beautiful lyrics and melodies I have ever heard.

His website links to another site full of wishes for his recovery, where people share their memories of him and his music. It is here:

His website also has a photo gallery:
