GUEST,Texas Guest Obit: Dan Fogelberg - 16 Dec 2007 (50) RE: Obit: Dan Fogelberg - 16 Dec 2007 18 Dec 07


Charlie Noble - I, too, am in love with "The Reach" - a simply wonderful song. When I think of Maine I can't help but recall my time in the USNavy when we anchored out in the bay at Rockland for a bit of R&R and took the launch in to enjoy the Lobster Festival...

...and Genie, I kinda saw Dan Fogelberg in his "pre-fame days" back in 1975. For my birthday I was taken to an Eagles concert at the Masonic Auditorium in Detroit, Michigan; I didn't pay much attention at the time to the long-haired singer who played guitar and piano as an opening act for the big guys - who were yet to be the superstars they became. It was in 1977 that I moved to Texas and started dating a young lady who introduced me to Dan Fogelberg's records and I immediately fell in love with his stuff - and realized that that was the guy who opened for the Eagles while I didn't pay attention.

I saw Dan several times over the years but my favorite concert was a solo show at the Bronco Bowl in Dallas, Texas around 1994 or so. He sat center-stage in a big ole' comfy easy-chair with a small table on the side. His guitar attendant would bring him a fresh instrument after each song and every once in a while he'd get up and move to the piano for a song or two. I was quite fortunate to get a
seat in the fourth or fifth row directly in front of him.

"...between the worlds of men and make-believe, I can be found."
