I'm very sad this evening...in the newspaper today was the blurb that one of my all-time favorite singer/ song-writers has passed away. I have been in YouTube for the last hour or so just watching and listening to his songs.
I started listening to him when I was in high school...and his words and music made such an impression on me. Dan and I went through so much together...his music was the one constant in my life for a very long time. Looking through his album list, I have every one... though I love them all, my favorites are Home Free ('72), Captured Angel ('75) and Nether Lands ('77). His voice was pure, his words were moving and his music will live in my heart forever.
Rest in peace, Dan...you will be missed.

Dan had oh so many wonderful songs...here is one of my favorites...a live performance..just a man, his guitar and a voice that is just beautiful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMfv9HALUro
