Gone too soon: Dan Fogelberg

Soft rock singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg died Sunday morning at the age of 56. Fogelberg, whose melodic hit singles included "Leader Of The Band," "Same Old Lang Syne" and "Longer," was part of the 1970s sensitive-guy singer-songwriter movement led by James Taylor and Jackson Browne. Fogelberg, an environmental activist whose most recent album was 2003's Full Circle, was diagnosed in 2004 with advanced prostate cancer. After his diagnosis he spoke out often as an advocate of regular testing and exams for men over 40. Read his Associated Press obit here; check our reviews here; visit his Web site here.

R.I.P. Dan.
