I heard you could get his greatest hits on a 45.

He seems top be pretty popular with the rodent population at least.

What a thing to say. What a sad life you must be leading.

Loggins has a couple dozen great songs, ranging over quite a few years.

One of my favorites is Cody's Song: "When you feel afraid, when you lose your way I'll find you ...I'll be there to sing to you ... comfort you and sing to you." Sweet, sweet, sweet.

"House at Pooh Corner"... "Watching the River Run"... "Your Mama Don't Dance"... all the albums with Messina... wonderful stuff.

My God. Sixty years old.

Check it out.

Saw him at the Oregon State Fair in...1989? '90? Huh. The only two songs I knew were Footloose and Danger Zone. It was a good little show.

I an ad for his show at the Civic Auditorium in 1988. I was aghast that he would command $20 for a ticket. $20! I don't even want to know what it's going to set me back to see Springsteen in Seattle.

But even 1988 Bean (aka Fig Newton) would agree it's worth it.

He is not called the "King of soft rock" for nothing.

A great song "This is It" written for his father when his father had a cancer diagnosis...
