The Living Legacy passes on.

Dan Fogelberg is no longer with us. He died of prostate cancer this morning. I had the honor of interviewing Dan a few years ago when he came to Charleston, and I can honestly say that it was the most enjoyable interview I've ever done. He was a lot of fun to talk to. He had just turned 50 when we talked and he told me he was thinking of hanging up the guitar and becoming a painter. The half-century mark was a good time to change careers, according to him. I'm sorry he didn't get a chance to do so. If he was half as good a painter as he was a singer-songwriter he'd have been a heck of a painter.

I'm just catching up on my blog reading. I knew I could count on you to write about Dan Fogelberg. I was devastated to hear that he'd died...a loss akin to losing George Harrison.

Don and I had seen Fogelberg in concert in Kansas City. It was like he was just singing for you in his living room.

What an honor that you were able to meet and interview him.

R.I.P., Danny.
