Sad news for music lovers — Dan Fogelberg, the famed singer and songwriter who penned classics such as “Leader of the Band,” lost his battle with prostate cancer today. He was 56.
From the AP report:
Fogelberg was found in 2004 to have advanced prostate cancer. In a statement then, he thanked fans for their support: “It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years. … I thank you from the very depths of my heart.”
I remember listening to Fogelberg’s songs as a kid with my dad. I’m sure I’m not the only fan who has been touched by his music.
