Five Sentence Tribute: Dan Fogelberg

Dan Fogelberg died at age 56 on Sunday

I saw the great singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg live on June 5, 1988 and it was a wonderful show.  I'm listening to his lovely first album, HOME FREE (above) from 1972 as I type this.  Fogelberg had many hits like "Hard to Say," "Leader of the Band," "Part of the Plan," "Longer," and the classic "Same Old Lang Syne."  I'll never forget listening to his albums SOUVENIRS (1974), NETHERLANDS (1977), PHOENIX (1979), and THE INNOCENT AGE (1981) on my "U.S. Tour 1987" with my buddy Matt Jones.  TWIN SONS OF DIFFERENT MOTHERS, his collaboration with Tim Weisberg in 1978, is another one worth listening to.
