Passed away. A great loss. One of the greatest songs ever made was by this man.

Same Old Lang Syne

So many memories rush back whenever I hear this.

Rest in Peace Dan.

I saw this on CNN. I'm not really familiar with him... How is he connected to Detroit?

I have one of his LPs at my folks place where the record player is. Terrific album, it has the song "Power of Gold". I played it for my daughter to show her how the flute can be used in a Rock Song, and sound great. She also plays the flute.

Even though I was not into his music as much as some, he definitely made an impact in the 80's. Colon cancer at age 56-too soon in my book. The "Leader of the Band" is, indeed, gone!

May his soul rest in peace.

Well, we can make it Detroit. I saw him open a concert for the Eagles in the early 70s, at the Masonic. He walked out on the stage by himself, set down a stool, perched on it, and began to play his acoustic guitar, and sing the most beautiful songs. I can't recall what year, but it had to be very early 70s.

I heard this last night and was greatly saddened. Leader of the Band and Same Old Lang Syne are two of my favorites. For those of you not too familiar with his music, he also did the very popular Longer Than (there've been fishes in the ocean...).
I am so mad at myself because I would see that he was playing Meadowbrook or Freedom HIll in the summers and I always meant to go see him because I found his acoustic guitar and soft voice so relaxing and his music brought back some great memories.
Yes, way too young to die. Dan Fogelberg will be missed.

Dan's music was truly music to feel to. He hit all the emotions, and one of his greatest albums is "Exhiles", it was all about his divorce from his first wife (he has since re-married), and it's hit single, "Lonely In Love".

We have lost so many groundbreaking artists in the last few years, and in addition to Dan, we recently lost Ike Turner.
Despite the demons that haunted him, and his other problems, Ike was gifted and them some, and he helped shape Rock and
R & B.

Cambrian:

Speaking of Fogelberg and the flute; remember the album he did with Tim Wiesberg - "Twin Sons of Different Mothers"? I'll have to rebuy it on CD. But if you want your daughter to appreciate the flute in a rock-n-roll context, then how'bout Jethro Tull.

Tull was good too. He Sounded good for a farmer from colonial period America. I liked "Cross Eyed Mary".

I saw Dan at Ford Auditorium in early 1975 He was touring in support of his "Part of the Plan" record and for an encore he said he had he had a special guest where he was joined by Glen Fry and they did a great version of " As the Raven Flies" It was one of my first concerts. RIP Dan I have great memories of that show!

"Locomotive Breath" should have been named "Locomotive Breathless" as there are some of the loudest breathing sounds that I have ever heard. I remember seeing the "Bungle in the Jungle" tour, I believe at Cobo. The guy put on a show with the flute.

The best flute:

"....and on the licking stick, Mr. Magic Dick....."
