Let's try a rewrite and see if it is any clearer:
At six o'clock yesterday morning Dan Fogelberg the singer and songwriter whose hits
"Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne" helped define the soft-rock era, died of prostate cancer at his home in Maine. He was 56 years old. I heard about this on the CNN news last night.
Did that help?
