Just in case ye sratty acousticers never heard of the man...….
Heard of him? Definitely! The man was a brilliant guitarist, pianist, and lyricist.
I saw him in Kansas City one -16 degree Winter night. Just him, his guitar, and a grand piano.
If you haven't heard Ghosts check it out. Leader of the Band is a great tribute to his father.
Fogelberg is sorely missed, gone much too young from the ravages of prostate cancer.
New song to me, but not new to the artist by any means.
Leader of the band is a great song, as is Same Auld Lang Syne.
Same Auld Lang Syne is a masterpiece!
Tough to choose a best, but if ya put a gun to my head either the Nether lands or Innocent Age have to be his best work.. Or maybe Phoenix, or Twin sons.. maybe even High country snows.. Ok guess you're gonna have to shoot me anyway.
You don't give yourself too many chances to land in the middle do you?
I really like the early albums, Home Free, Captured Angel and Souvenirs. My three favorites.
The Innocent Age and Netherlands are real close 2nd's
I think my favorite song of all is Scarecrow's Dream off of Netherlands
and.....I really do know how to spell.....embarrassing.
Joe Walsh does a lot of guitar work on Souvenirs.
Joe Walsh was his producer, for a period of time at least. Walsh's, Pretty Maids All in a Row always reminds me of Fogelberg's Run for the Roses. A little inspiration back and forth.
Off those albums I'd say my fav songs are
Be on your way - Home free
Old Tennessee - Captured Angel
Souvenirs - Souvenirs
I lived (81-93) around Nederland CO. a couple miles from his place back in the beginning of the 80's. Ran into him and Maggie (his wife at the time) a couple times in town and had some few interactions with them. They somewhat frequently would come into town to eat at either "Neopolitans Italian Restaurant" or "The Place Upstairs" (Where I worked at the time) in wolf tongue square or visit the "Pioneer Inn" bar if they were feeling like pounding some back. Part of the deal in town was that when folks like them or Carl Wilson and Gina came in, you let em have a life. The place I worked we had a small side dining room and if possible we'd put them in there out of the main flow of people. Caribou Ranch was just outside of town so it wasn't uncommon for some well knowns to pop into town to get a break. Even after the fire that took the studio a lot of folks went there to decompress sometimes. Jim Guercio and family would come in pretty frequently as well with people staying at the ranch for whatever reason.
I'll close this ramble out with a pic of the cabin we lived in. Delivered two eldest of my daughters here (which is a story for another time I suppose). Tons of memories of that time in my life, now drifting silently into the dusts of time. Pic was taken last summer when the eldest daughter went out to see where she was born.
I don’t recall him getting great exposure in the UK, but what a fantastic track that is. It really brings back memories of the early 80’s.
His name is Dan, or Daniel... even those close to him, in his all too short adult life, never called him Danny.
Just a term of endearment I suppose. Calling him Danny. Just like I say Johnny Denver!!
CigBurn Nice story . He's up on a pedestal for me.
My Big three: Dan, John Denver, and Gordon Lightfoot.
