Concert for Diggerdan

danTrenchers, we are having a concert for Diggerdan.  A tribute, if you will, where we can have all the songs in one place that remind us of Dan or how we feel.  They will all be in one place, and we can just sit back and listen to some good music, uninterrupted.

It doesn’t matter if they have been posted before, go ahead and add them to the concert.

Just post them in the comment section.  [If you paste the url of the YouTube video it will appear as a video]    


Here is a start:

      It’s going to take me a bit to go through these many wonderful videos that are posted in Diggerdan’s memory. This one “Danny Boy” by Eric Clapton is a beautiful tribute to Digger, thanks Angel NYC!

      Interesting that the video is no longer available in my above post but is still openly available on youtube.
      Sad that so many of the wonderful songs that we posted are no longer available. If I had titles, I could probably replace them.

      Thanks, Angel. 😀

      Dinnertime, and then I want to see Millard’s video.

        btw, you picked my absolute favorite Bob Marley song.

        Sweet choice. 😉

        • Angel-NYC says:

          That song has been running through my brain, since I was told about Dan’s passing (2 weeks ago today). I kept hearing, and still hear, Dan telling me “No woman, no cry…”

    tried to post tears in heaven by Clopton Angel. If it’s not too much trouble.

        I remember when Dan posted this one. Seems like it was not long before Dan left us all. I just wanted to say that I couldn’t wait to share this video that Dan posted with my husband. We always got a good laugh out of Cheech and Chong way back in the ’70s. What a fun little cartoon video this one is! 🙂

        • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

          I saw them live on stage up in Canada back in ’71.

          My stomach hurt all the next day from laughing so hard. 😆

          • CatFon says:

            #1 that’s really funny and I’m glad that you saw these guys way back when. Must have been something else to see their live performance!

    Last February, Digger was feeling really low (poor health…really cold/bad winter..feeling like Spring would never come…). I sent him these songs, to bring a smile to his face and make him laugh. They worked. LOL 🙂 He talked and kidded me about them to the end.

    I didn’t know Digger Dan but from the things he wrote in some of his replies we had a lot of the same views. My heart hurts for his loved ones as if I had lost a friend, God bless him and his loved ones. Hope to see you on the other side one day Digger Dan. RIP

    Found it #1

    I hope that comes through. CCR Green River.

  29. someguy says:

    OK, let’s try that again…

  30. Paul says:

    Aw man…………that picture of him makes me want to reach out and give him a big hug.

    I posted this on April 5, 2014. Dan made a musing inquiry as to why I would post a Donovan song:


    My only regret is that I did not seize the opportunity to know Dan better (I would have loved to party with him). I’m glad to finally see a picture of the man called diggerdan… but it still cannot sufficiently define this man’s outstanding character. He shall truly always be missed.

  34. NC says:

    Sorry I posted late. Here’s to you, Digs!

  35. Angel-NYC says:

    Digger’s sign off, in his emails, was always “Your Trusting and Loyal Friend”.
    Miss you Dan. Miss hearing your voice on the phone, your emails, and your comments in the Trenches. I still hear your voice commenting on stories posted in the Trenches. LOL 🙂 This song is from one Trusting and Loyal Friend to the other. RIP You will always be with us.

    • NC says:

      Yea, I remember him always saying that too, Angel. I’ll truly miss him.

    • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

      Same here, Angel. Really miss that.

    • Inretrospect says:

      A nice and appropriate selection, Angel. 1973 was also the best year of my life! Dan and I were the same age and, presumed from some of our brief exchange of posts on FTTWR that we also experienced similar rough roads in our past.

    • Angel-NYC says:

      WOW! Not “available” when I clicked it. (OK. Granted. It has been almost 5 years since I posted the link. 🙂 :Lol: )
      Let”s see if this one works. 🙂
