Dan Fogelberg (1951-2007) performed a one-man show at Carnegie Hall when he was 27. He sold over 15 million albums: 1 Triple Platinum, 4 Double Platinum, 3 Platinum, and 2 Gold RIAA Certified Albums. He had 11 Billboard Top 100 Albums, 3 Billboard Top 200 Albums, 1 Billboard Top 50 Country Album, 4 Billboard #1 Singles, 17 Billboard Hot 100 Singles, 13 Billboard Top 20 Adult Contemporary Singles, 4 Billboard Top 50 Mainstream Rock Singles, and 3 Billboard Top 100 Country Singles.

He was the Rock Music Awards New Male Vocalist of 1974 - 1975. His song, "Longer" is one of the most popular weddings songs in history. His song "Run For The Roses" is now synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. His song "Same Old Lang Syne" is a staple of pre-Christmas airplay across the country. His song "Power Of Gold" was used as the theme song for the 1980 Winter Olympics.

He wrote songs, and performed at numerous concerts, to promote awareness and raise funds for causes ranging from the environment and wildlife preservation, to the rights of Native Americans. He was a master lead, electric, acoustic, rhythm, and classical guitarist, as well an accomplished piano and keyboard player.

He wrote the music and lyrics, sang lead vocals and harmonies, and played most of the instruments on the majority of his recordings. His music is woven into the fabric of the lives of fans around the world.

He has been inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame and the Red Rocks Performers Hall of Fame. Martin Guitars honored Dan with the D-41 Dan Fogelberg Signature edition Martin guitar.

In December of 2007, Dan Fogelberg died of prostate cancer.


We, the undersigned, believe that the musical legacy left by Dan Fogelberg deserves to be recognized by The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
