Dan Fogelberg ~ 1951~2007

Tonight I am thinking of Dan Fogelberg and feeling very sad.

The last time we saw Dan was in Atlanta at this same venue where we will see Mark Knopfler  on Tuesday.

 This concert, 'Full Circle,' 2003,  turned out to be Dan's last tour before his illness  was discovered.

  I suppose  because of this fact I am feeling overwhelmingly melancholy and have been drawn to seek out his music tonight.  There 's  a lot available...a lot are slides - not live concerts- but everything he ever did was/is beautiful to me!

This is one of his very early songs from his 'NetherLands' album. (1977)

Hi Junie! Just catching up on reading your posts. I'm behind in my reading and commenting. Sorry you were feeling sad and I hope listening to some of his music made you feel better. You had to be Dan Fogelberg's biggest fan ever!

I hope you have a wonderful trip!

We are fans of some of the same people. I go to utube and listen to him a lot. I'm sorry you are sad but think of all the wonderful times you have had, listening to his music.

I also listen to Dan Hill while I'm there.

I think when we've invested ourselves in someone - for their music, their comedic humor, their acting - when they are gone it's like losing one of our own family and we feel a loss.

Thanks, girls, for all your nice comments!

Eve-I'm always happy to meet another DanFan. He was a wonderfully talented singer/sonwriter and musician- IMHO
