Dan Fogelberg Dies at Age 56

Years ago I had dinner with Dan Fogelberg. He was in town doing a concert and I was was doing "soft rock" radio at the time. He was very nice and his song "Same Old Lang Syne" always reappears on radio this time of the year.

A posting on his website Sunday said this:

Dear friends,

Dan left us this morning at 6:00am . He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife Jean at his side. His strength, dignity, and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him.
