Glen Frey was simply too young to die. What talent. He was an excellent guitarist, talented song writer and his vocals were exceptional. Eagles, the group, have had a following that spans 40 plus years. I simply can’t stop listening to their songs. I even broke down and brought my Eagles best into the house, out of the car.
I really did go to Winslow Arizona about 10 years ago just to see the Standing on the Corner statue. That fire made it unsafe to get up to the actual park.
Winslow is right on route 66. All of those small towns along that route really dried up once the interstate went in. Winslow was just cool.
Thinking about favorite songs, I can’t make up my mind. I guess Lying Eyes, New Kid in Town, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Take it Easy, and of course, Hotel California. I only saw them once. I sat in the nose-bleed section at RFK. I paid a fortune for the tickets also. I wouldn’t trade it for anything though.
RIP, Glen Frey. You rule!
