Dan Fogelberg


Dan Fogelberg is one of my favorite singers and I guess that most of my regular visitors never heard of him! As usual :P
He is a folk/rock singer who has a wonderful voice and who emerged in the music scene during the 70's and 80's with such songs like Longer, Make Love Stay, Hard to Say and Leader of the Band where he sang about his father who was a bandleader ( the best lines from that song is when he says: I thank you for the music and your stories of the road -- I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go -- I thank you for the kindness and the times when you got tough -- And, papa, I don't think I said 'I love you' near enough) it almost makes me wanna cry when I listen to those lines in particular!

I highly recommend this artist to listen to if you are fed up with the crap they dare to call music these days!
For more information and lyrics check his official site Dan Fogelberg.

* The photo is from 1975 so if anybody decided to listen just because of the looks I am warning you that he changed a little bit now :P

But you guys who wanted to cut his hair, didn't you check his site?? He already cut it and shaved his beard! Actually he shaved his beard after he got a divorce and he was so depressed so he shaved what was a trade mark beard!
