Wow,

I had no idea - still was quite a young man.

I'll be humming a few of his timeless hits in his memory.

RIP to a great songwriter...

Rip to a great writer and singer! Sometimes i wonder if being exposed to electronics too much, ie studios and recording gear changes our cell structure?Who knows! We all live the mystery of life.

Strangely enough, I remember there being a rumor about it a while back, but it looks like it's actually true this time. May he rest in peace.

They say death comes in threes. First it was Kevin DuBrow. Then Ike Turner. And now Mr. Fogelberg. I guess that completes the "famous musician" trilogy. Hopefully there won't be another one for a while.

Yeah, it's too bad smoking is so ingrained into the musician/artist lifestyle. It takes them so much younger.

He played at our high school along with the Eagles in 1976. Problem was I was too much of a rebellious rocker to appreciate the show . About 4 years after that I ended up being a huge fan.

He died of advanced prostate cancer...
What makes you think his cancer was caused by smoking?
Many non-smokers also contract cancer.
And many smokers will out-live you too, pal.

Life causes cancer, cancer and death do not discriminate.
When your time is up...You are done.

It's a shame about Dan's death...
I always enjoyed his music.


Risk Factors



Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting 1 in 6 men. The older you are, the more likely you are to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although only 1 in 10,000 under age 40 will be diagnosed, the rate shoots up to 1 in 39 for ages 40 to 59, and 1 in 14 for ages 60 to 69. In fact, more than 65% of all prostate cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65.

But the roles of race and family history are important as well. African American men are 61% more likely to develop prostate cancer compared with Caucasian men and are nearly 2.5 times as likely to die from the disease. Men with a single first-degree relative—father, brother or son—with a history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease, while those with two or more relatives are nearly four times as likely to be diagnosed. The risk is even higher if the affected family members were diagnosed at a young age, with the highest risk seen in men whose family members were diagnosed before age 60.

Although genetics might play a role in deciding why one man might be at higher risk than another, social and environmental factors, particularly diet and lifestyle, likely have an effect as well.

In fact, research in the past few years has shown that diet modification might decrease the chances of developing prostate cancer, reduce the likelihood of having a prostate cancer recurrence, or help slow the progression of the disease.

More information about how dietary and lifestyle changes can affect the risk of prostate cancer development and progression can be found in the Nutrition and Prostate Cancer guide.

When weighing risk factors for prostate cancer, it’s also important to recognize that there are non-risk factors, or factors that have not been linked to an increase in risk.

Whoa, looks like I hit a nerve. You can tell yourself whatever you need to sleep at night, but the fact remains that smoking is a major risk factory for MANY types of cancer, not to mention cardiovascular disease, emphysema, the list goes on and on. To ignore or even downplay the massive impact of smoking on health is absurd.

Indeed. Choosing to smoke is perhaps the single poorest choice a person can make in terms of their health.

Certainly not all deaths are related to it and certainly some smokers will nonetheless outlive non-smokers but the statistics are overwhelmingly clear as to its adverse effects.

Anyway, RIP Dan.

TYY...

If you only knew how many clean-living, non-smokers that I have seen burried young.
I'm not in the least trying to defend the choice to smoke or not to smoke.
Smoking anything is obviously an unhealthy choice.
Much more for some than for others.

But you are living in a dreamworld of you automatically infer or suggest that any young person who contracts cancer must have been a smoker.

That's simpily absurd logic...

Sorry, if that hit a nerve with you.
When it's your time to die, you will...
That's a fact.

We don't know how he got the cancer?Smokin and drinking and eating meat are risks for some cancers.

My mother had two different cancers before finally losing her battle to them. Never drank, smoked or did any kind of drugs. She didn't even like to take an aspirin.

My great grandfather "Delbert" lived to be 93 years old. He smoked un-filtered Camels like a freakin' chimney! I remember visiting him at the "card room". Complete with nudy girl calendars, green visors, and a completly smoke filled room.
He didn't die of cancer. He died from "old age"
Go figure.

On an up note, I passed my colonoscopy and prostate test with flying colors last week. All you guys get your asses to the doctor and do IT!

No it's not the most fun I've had, but I do sleep better at night knowing that I will most likely NOT die from colon or prostrate cancer. . . sure the type 2 , hypertension or high blood pressure might get me but Hey!
If it's not one thing it's the other.

Van

P.S. RIP Dan!
