RIP Glenn Frey, Eagles guitarist

Glenn Frey, founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, has died at age 67, reportedly of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.

I saw The Eagles last year during their final "History of the Eagles" concert tour. It was a great experience that I am now especially thankful to have had.

Too many RIP threads within the past couple of weeks.

Re: RIP Glenn Frey, Eagles guitarist

What a horror month this has been for the untimely departure of talented legends! Once again, I'm shocked. Again, a similar age to the other great performers who died in these last few days.

I too saw (the) Eagles (they went through a phase of wanting the article not to be used) in 1996 at Wembley Stadium on their Hell Freezes Over (as in, "we'll get back together when Hell freezes over!") tour. I was so far up in the stands, they were ants on the stage. But the music was perfect, so polished.

RIP. Another powerful, forming influence from my youth gone too soon.

Heartache tonight.

Well Billy rapped all night about his suicide
How he kick it in the head when he was twenty-five
Speed jive don't want to stay alive

Funky little boat race
Television man is crazy saying we're juvenile delinquent wrecks
Oh man I need TV when I got T. Rex
Oh brother you guessed

Now Lucy looks sweet 'cause he dresses like a queen
But he can kick like a mule it's a real mean team
But we can love oh yes we can love
And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on that revolution stuff
What a drag too many snags
Now I've drunk a lot of wine and I'm feeling fine
Got to race some cat to bed
Oh is there concrete all around
Or is it in my head
Yeah
I'm a dude dad

Re: RIP Glenn Frey, Eagles guitarist

Oh dear - another phenomenal talent gone. I grew up listening to the Eagles and it their concert at the MEN in Manchester around 11 years ago is still, hands down, one of the best I've ever attended.

I was also there. We were on the pitch quite close to the stage. One of the best gigs I have been to.

Is it a sign of my own old age that all the music and acting "hero's" I grew up with, are "exiting stage left"?!
