In Memory Of Glenn Frey



We lost another one today, a cornerstone of the Eagles, (The Band not the Football Team) Glenn Frey passed away today at the age of 67.

Surprisingly, my first encounter with his music was not anything related to the band he was a founding member of, it was actually thanks to this solo career, and music he contributed to films like Beverly Hills Cop (The Heat Is On) and Ghostbusters II (Flip City), and appearing on Miami Vice.

But it is his work with the Eagles that will be forever remembered by the majority of people, and just focusing on Glenn, I have to say he contributed perfectly to the bands harmonies, and certainly was a solid guitarist if over shadowed by other members of the band.

So my condolences to his friends and family.
