RIP: Dan Seals (aka England Dan)

Dan Seals was a member of the duo England Dan and John Ford Coley, brother of Jimmy Seals of Seals and Croft fame. I grew up listening to their music and really liked them.

Dan Seals, who was England Dan in the pop duo England Dan and John Ford Coley and later had a successful country career, has died of complications from cancer. He was 61.

Longtime manager Tony Gottlieb said Seals, diagnosed with lymphoma two years ago, died Wednesday night at his daughter’s home in Nashville.

With England Dan and John Ford Coley, Seals had hits including “I’d Really Like to See You Tonight” and “Nights Are Forever,” both in 1976. His country hits in the ’80s and ’90s included “Bop,” ”You Still Move Me,” ”Love on Arrival,” and a duet with Marie Osmond, “Meet Me in Montana.”
