Kenny Loggins was born in Everett, Washington on January 7, 1948. The guitarist and moved along with his salesman father across the U.S. and settled in Los Angeles, California in his teens, soaking up the scene. He got a job as a staff writer and wrote four songs used on a Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album in 1970, among them the hit song “House At Pooh Corner” (which he later played himself). This brought him to the attention of former Poco member Jim Messina, then a staff producer at CBS, who intended to produce Loggins’ debut album. The two ended up in a , however, and Loggins & Messina made a series of successful albums during the .

Loggins & Messina, providing a set of tunes that still receive airplay, broke up in 1976, and Loggins went on to solo stardom with such million-selling albums as Celebrate Me Home, Nightwatch (which included the hit “Whenever I Call You Friend”), and Keep the Fire, all in the cheerful, sensitive style he had displayed in Loggins & Messina. Loggins also became known as the king of the movie soundtrack song, scoring Top Ten hits with “I’m Alright” (from Caddyshack), “Footloose” (from Footloose), “Danger Zone” (from Top Gun), and “Nobody’s Fool” (from Caddyshack II). His own albums sold less well (and came less frequently) throughout the ’80s, with later efforts like 1991’s Leap of Faith, 1997’s The Unimaginable Life and 1998’s December finding favor primarily in adult contemporary circles; in 1994

    Man... when your #1 top tag is "80s" that's not a good sign... I dig Danger Zone, though.

    "I'm Free" is my freaking jam. Favorite song ever. I'm gonna be listening to the rest of his catalogue 'cause the lyrics on some of his tracks seem to be quite inspirational.

    Such a great talent. Even though he's no stranger to hits, much of his earlier work went almost unnoticed, especially his first three solo albums were all masterpieces, especially "Celebrate Me Home," one of the best albums ever made.
