Default RIP Glenn Frey, Eagles.

Glenn Frey died today, age 67.

I saw an Eagles documentary and while watching it I thought Glenn Frey came off as such a hardass. Maybe it was just usual band politics, but I really didn't care for him. Yeah he sang "Take It Easy," but can't say he did. I felt sorry for those who crossed his path like Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner and Don Felder.

Anyways for all the fans, rest in peace Glenn Frey.

From Don Henley

Don Henley on Glenn Frey : Don Henley
Quote:
“He was like a brother to me; we were family, and like most families, there was some dysfunction. But, the bond we forged 45 years ago was never broken, even during the 14 years that the Eagles were dissolved.

We were two young men who made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles with the same dream: to make our mark in the music industry — and with perseverance, a deep love of music, our alliance with other great musicians and our manager, Irving Azoff, we built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed. But, Glenn was the one who started it all. He was the spark plug, the man with the plan. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn’t quit. He was funny, bullheaded, mercurial, generous, deeply talented and driven. He loved his wife and kids more than anything.

We are all in a state of shock, disbelief and profound sorrow. We brought our two-year “History of the Eagles Tour” to a triumphant close at the end of July and now he is gone. I’m not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some.”

-Don Henley

Maybe that's a better word to use instead of hardass.

Have been a pretty big Eagles fan ever since I was a kid. This one is hard for me to take.
