Sad day for Eagles fans around the world as founding member Glenn Frey passed away today. I am one of the lucky ones who got to see them during their heyday. My dad actually took me and friend of mine to an Eagles concert on their Long Run tour. I was 17 in 1980. The ticket stub is one of my prized possessions in an extensive collection. In my memory, it remains one of the best sounding live performances I have ever witnessed. They sounded exactly like they did on their records… fantastic.
Here are just a few songs he wrote or co-wrote with Don Henley that fit in quite well with our subject matter here.
Take It To The Limit
Life In The Fast Lane
and one of the Holy Trinity in my Rock Music litany: Stairway to Heaven, Freebird, and:
one more classic that showcases his distinctive style and ability to sing a great story.
Rest in Peace Glenn.
