    Get those prostate checkups, fellas. Don’t forget to keep it entertaining by making little happy noises during the exam.

    How are Seals and Croft doing?

    Dan looks like a member of Band of Horses in that pic.

    I’m surprised the obits I’ve seen so far fail to mention his Yacht/Smooth Rock classic, “Longer” — by far his most-played radio hit. It’s playing right now in the elevator taking Dan down to hell.

    Anytime I hear Fogelberg’s name I think of that Denis Leary bit about suicidal kid’s parents suing Judas Priest. He says, ” I should have sued Dan Fogelberg. Between him and James Taylor I didn’t get a blowjob until I was 25.”

    @disinterested 3rd party: “…and as I turned to make my way back home/the snow turned into rain.” Still a heartbreaker, damn the cheese factor.

    RIP, Danny boy.

    Was Fogelberg cheesy? Hell, yes. But is he going to Hell? Heck, no. He’s the man who made it okay to pointlessly wallow in self-serving nostalgia!

    Sound familiar, any hipster in the 25-to-35-year-old range who’s ever casually dropped a “Thundercats” reference?
