R.I.P. Glen Frey

I know some here don't like The Eagles, but I've always been a fan.

He played with Bob Seger and Linda Ronstadt before the Eagles got started.

And even if you don't like their music, the documentary done by Alison Eastwood a couple of years ago is worth a watch. The movie Almost Famous is based in part on the Eagles. Lots of bitterness and great stories involving Joe Walsh.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

I'll have to watch the documentary. I only saw them once in concert. Probably the Long Run tour or maybe a couple of years after that. Life in the Fast Lane and Hotel California had already been played to absolute death, but in concert they took on a whole new life and they did just about everything you'd want to hear. It was a great show.

There are a few over played classic rock standards that I actually do stop for, like Piano Man for example, but this is kind of a cheesy one. Not their best song, but it reminded me so much of a woman I knew, I still listen to the whole thing.

There is a great scene in the documentary about that song. They also do part of it a capella. They had some amazing vocal harmony.

Seven Bridges Road is one of the best songs of all time.

Another artist from before my time. Never my thing but the list of mourners tells me all I need to know. RIP.
