Dan Fogelberg, R.I.P.



Sad news: Soft-rock troubadour Dan Fogelberg died today after a prolonged battle with prostate cancer. Says his Web site:

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.

He's best-known for the song "Longer" and the seasonal classic "Same Old Lang Syne."

MP3: Dan Fogelberg, "Same Old Lang Syne"

Go download his Christmas song, "At Christmas Time" here at this post. Ignore the snarky banter; the post was published last week.
