Oh no. I had heard he was not well but didn't know the details.

Awwwww. Dan was one of the first singers my mother introduced me to when I was little, back in the 70s, and I always loved him.

I love his music.

No matter how much or when ever I hear Leader of the band it reminds me of my father. It always moves me to tears.

Oh, that makes me so sad.

"Same Old Lang Syne" is one of my favorite songs ever...and he was so talented.

Oh no!! I didn't know he was even sick. :( How sad. I have to find my record (yes, vinyl) and CDs...

Fuck. For my circle of friends at the time, "The Innocent Age" simply was the soundtrack of our college years.

Fuck.

How sad. In college, I was fortunate enough to hear him perform a few times, including a concert in Providence, RI where oddly, my then boyfriend, now ex-husband and I happened to look up into the huge audience and see his brother and sister in the sea of thousands of people.


As stated above, Dan Fogelberg, pretty much provided the song track to my college (and high school) years too.

Thank you for posting this. Dan Fogelberg has been one of my favourite artists for years; "Leader of the Band" and "Run for the Roses" are two of my favourite songs.
