The Leader of the Band...

Well, this is sad news to start out the week. Dan Fogelberg died of cancer yesterday at the age of only 56. His music was an institution in the 80s -- the guys all hated him but the girls all wanted "Longer" played at their weddings...

Damn. I did not know that. And he was so young.



I always loved "Run For The Roses"



I loved everything he did.

The big C yanks another one from among us. And this guy didn't hate him: even if I was going through a "metal" phase, I knew quality when I heard it.

Sad news.

He battled the disease for quite a long time.



I dug most of his catalog. (Most, that is, except for "Same Old Lang Syne," which is just spooky, embarrassing, and depressing. I can't believe they play it incessantly during the Christmas season. Analyze those lyrics sometime.)

Spooky, embarrassing and depressing pretty much sums up Christmas as far as I am concerned Bill.

I don't know what to say, really.

What holidays do you like? :)

I can't speak for Buck, but I like Thanksgiving the best. It's a simple holiday that hasn't been coopted by the retail industry, the right wing christians, the jingoists, or any other really annoying group of people.



El Día de los Muertos is pretty cool too.

Just because it is spooky, embarrassing and depressing doesn't mean I don't like it ;-)

I loved his music.
