Since I have featured Dan Fogelberg on a number of my posts you have probably figured out that he was one of my favorite performers. I was thinking about him as I finished up my most recent posts in The California Sound series. Dan, like myself, was a huge fan of Buffalo Springfield. He wrote a beautiful song, The Innocent Age, which he described as, “My tribute to my favorite American band, Buffalo Springfield. Really went after the guitar and drums sounds from their records. It was a great touch to have Ritchie Furay (original Springfield member) sing harmony on it. Thanks, Rich!” I added a short introduction to Dan’s tribute song and a few pictures. I hope you enjoy this collaboration.
Dan passed away a couple of years ago but he had a tremendous influence on me and millions of other people. He once stated, “You’re successful if you can get one person to pick it up and put it on the turntable and go, Wow, thanks for writing that!” which was my inspiration for this blog. If just one person reads this blog and in so doing finds some joy or learns something new about music I will consider myself, and the blog, to be a success.
