Dan Fogelberg (1951 – 2007)

Here is his website announcement. In 1981, he released “Leader of the Band”, a tribute to his father, a band conductor in his day, and great influence on the son. The song is one of the better tribute song out there (another being “The Living Years” by Mike Rutherford). I had written a tribute song to my parents, but never got around to finishing it because, well, it just isn’t very good. Since I will have some free time in the next couple of weeks (no teaching due to X-mass break) I will finally get around to recording some stuff.

Anyway, here is a live performance of “Leader of the Band”.

PS. My dad passed away one year ago as of Nov 29. I was going to post on it but decided that it was not the kind of “anniversary” that screams for a celebration. I figure I’ll write something about it when I get to my 3’rd year blogiversary.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. My dad is still alive and I am very cognizant of the ebbing of time. He has been a powerful, positive influence on my life.
