A sad day indeed - Godspeed Dan - Thank you for your music.... :(

Dan Seals, the kid from Pleasant Grove who emerged as a country music star after performing as one-half of the top 40 hit machine known as England Dan & John Ford Coley, died Wednesday night from complications of lymphoma.

Dan Seals passed away March 25, 2009 following a valiant struggle with mantle cell lymphoma. He leaves behind thousands of fans, countless friends and a loving family. He enjoyed a musical career which spanned four decades and included hit records both as a member of pop duo England Dan and John Ford Coley, and as a solo country artist. In 1986 he won Country Music Association Awards for "Bop" and "Meet Me in Montana." He will forever be remembered for his gentle smile, easy going demeanor, his enduring faith and endless generosity.

So true wilsondm2. I was shocked when I read this on the internet Friday. Had every intention of posting and forgot. ??? England Dan and John Ford Coley is some of my all time favorite music.

Rest in peace Dan! You will be missed. :'(

Many of the musicians of my youth have gone on recently. Guess that is to be expected as you approach 60.

you're all welcome. thank you all for posting as well and sending good thoughts to Dan.

I met him once in San Antonio at his concert and he was very much a gentleman and good soul.

I too grew up with his music. His music resonates in my heart and brings joy to me when I'm down.

His death affected me even deeper than when I heard Dan Fogelberg died.

<sigh> Im feeling old when my heroes start dying.

I *will* miss Dan Seals and his music very much...

Dan Fogelberg another of my all time favorites. I cried when he died, so sad. Great musicians, what a loss. My iPod is filled with both of these guys music. One of my favorites from Fogelberg is The Wild Places, what an awesome song.

RIP - the music lives on.  The songs of England Dan, Fogleberg, Nilson, Harry Chapin.  They still make me cry when I hear them.
