R.I.P. Dan Fogelberg

The definitive ballad singer / songwriter of the 1970’s and ’80’s, Dan Folgelberg, died today.  His emotional songs "Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne" were chart-toppers that had everyone singing in their cars whenever they played on the radio.  Leader of the Band was actually about his own father, who actually was a bandleader. 

Folgelberg died of prostrate cancer, which he was diagnosed with in 2004, at the age of 56.
