Larry Kegan

Singer-songwriter Larry Kegan, who performed in concert with Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne and others, died Tuesday Sept. 11 of cardiac arrest in St. Paul, Minn. He was 59.

Kegan sang at Gov. Jesse Ventura’s inaugural celebration in 1999, at American Indian functions and at Stillwater State Prison.

A paraplegic since a diving accident when he was 15, and a quadriplegic after a car accident a decade later, Kegan was nonetheless active. He ran a resort for disabled veterans in Mexico and managed orange groves in Florida before returning to Minnesota in the mid-1970s.

He met Dylan when they were teen-agers at a summer camp. Decades later, in 1978, Dylan dedicated his album “Street Legal” to Kegan.
