FOGELBERG, DAN (1951– ), U.S. composer and recording artist. Born in Peoria, Illinois, Fogelberg studied the piano from the age of 14, switched to guitar and played at local coffeehouses while majoring in art at the University of Illinois. Fogelberg's first album, Home-free (1972), attracted little attention. His second album, Souvenirs (1974), however, proved to be one of the finest collections of songs written in the 1970s. In 1975 Fogelberg was chosen as pop music's newcomer of the year and since then has recorded a number of best-selling albums including Captured Angel (1975), Twin Sons of Different Mothers (1979) with Tim Weisberg, Phoenix (1980), and The Innocent Age (1981). During the 1980s, none of his albums were platinum, but they continued to sell well among hardcore fans. During the 1990s he made several albums: River of Souls (1993), No Resemblance Whatsoever, a collaboration with Tim Weisberg (1995), First Christmas Morning (1999), and Something Old New Borrowed and Some Blues (2000).
