Dan Fogelberg would have turned 65 today had he not died in 2007 of prostate cancer.
I always try to remember to honor Dan on his birthday and anniversary of his death.
I also think of my ol’ buddy, Bernie McGuire, who introduced me to Dan’s music. In 1978-1981, we made a hobby of covering most of the songs from the Captured Angel and Souvenirs records, including Morning Sky.
Occasionally, Elileen Dwyer, another “Mountie,” joined us, providing incredible harmonies. What I wouldn’t give to go back and just be able to play just one night at “The Rat”.
His music of the 1980’s and early 80’s is what attracted me. This live version of Morning Sky was recorded in 1976 at the famous Capitol Theatre. (BTW, if you are over 50 and consider yourself a fan of music, do yourself a favor and click on the Capitol Theatre link and see who played there “back in the day.”
