It was this evening when it occurred to me that today (12/16) is the 7th anniversary of Dan Fogelberg's passing. He's one of my favorites artists of all time. I just loved his voice and songwriting, and he was taken from us way too soon due to prostate cancer. One of my favorite holiday songs is his "Same Old Lang Syne." It sounds like a New Year's song, but the story actually unfolds on Christmas Eve. Here's a wonderful live rendition I found from a PBS performance.
Rest in peace, Dan. You're still sorely missed.
