Take It Easy: The Eagles

“Glenn Frey , co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles, has died. Glenn co-wrote and sang on most of the Eagles hits, including “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Heartache Tonight,” to name a few. He also co-wrote “Hotel California” and “Desperado” with Don Henley and took home 6 Grammys with the band.

After the Eagles’ 1980 breakup, Glenn launched a successful solo career, recording numerous hits … most notably “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong to the City.”

Don Henley said, “We built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed. But Glenn was the one who started it all. 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.”

    As otherwise mentioned Glenn Fry graduated Dondero around 1966 and stuck around long enough to record with the Bob Seger System – providing vocals and guitar.

    Bob is always around town and easy to spot at a sports event especially the Pistons. Glenn aint in the video but here is Seger and a couple of chums rambling on some TV show that doesn’t seem to be Soupy Sales.

      MDH,
      Wow, they seem to have loud as their best attribute. But as the host said, “Groovy, man,” which would not have been my description of this music.
