Studio recording of I Can't Tell You Why.

Think Glen's playing keyboards here.

Also off on The Long Run. Kind of a goofy song.



Closing tack off the LP.


I probably should of found some Glenn tunes but didn't know any rare or deep tracks from him.

This is an Eagles song that was recorded interestingly in 2001.

I know they got back together in 1994 but didn't know they had anything after that and never even heard of it till this group that I subscribe too covered it.





Here's their version of 7 Bridges.

I know I'm quite late on this.

It was somehow easier to respond about Paul Kantner.

I guess enough days have passed to talk about it now.

I guess my first experience with the Eagles & Glenn Frey was when
my family, ironically, moved to California in 1977. (39 years ago last week.)

Ironic, as the band had just released Hotel California in Dec. of 1976. My brothers found friends in San Diego, who were truly up to speed on the music scene. The Eagles were one of many 'new' bands , they (and I) discovered before all of us were age 13. (I was 8).

The week of Feb. 20th to 26th, one month after, saw
"New Kid In Town" go to #1. A very appropriate song for our new situation.

Starting from that grass-roots point, we got to know their stuff pretty well for the next 3 years. Then they broke up in 1980/1981. Oddly enough, that was about the time we left California, for Phoenix, AZ.

I learned even more about The Eagles and their members musical
histories and had (later) my own reuniting with some of their 70's music I missed out on.

While my brothers were not as big on the 80s solo careers, I stayed with it. I bought all of Glenn's hits, as well as Don's and even Timothy B. Schmit & Joe Walsh.


Glenn Frey's easy style vocals are what make many of the songs he sang lead on some thing very special. His own 80's hits, while not as melodic (which is what labels were looking for then)... still for that era, do pack a certain kind of emotional punch.

I know whenhe and the guys got back together in 1994, they made their fans quite happy, even though many wished it had only been 5 or 6 years, instead of 13 -14.

Many people mistakenly credited Don Henley, more than Glenn, with the success of the band and that's something I learned wasn't a fact. It was a team effort and both did their share. Even when things got rocky. At least Glenn also lived to see the band inducted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1998.


So, to Glenn Frey I wish you to Rest in Peace , in the knowledge that the music you and your friends made, spoke for a generation and an audience, looking for simple yet deep music, with simple but important truths in the words that were sung to them.
