Dan Fogelberg is dead, of prostate cancer, at just 56.
I saw him perform live in St. Paul, outdoors, with my high school boyfriend and his mom, who cried at one of the songs. And the crowd went wild when he sang "Leader of the Band" and got to the line about how "one went to Chicago/and the other to ST. PAUL."
I know many people considered him a sapmaster, but what can I say, I have a sappy side.
When I told Rob that Fogelberg had died, he said "Oh. The male Anne Murray."
