I’m becoming discouraged that January 2016 has me saying goodbye to singers and actors who have passed. This has been less than a stellar month for those who have said farewell to the Earthly plain have have descended to the Heavens.
Today, Glenn Frey, one of the founding Eagles, has also left “us” at the tender age of 67. I love listening to the Eagles. “Desperado” was the first Eagles song I can remember. “Take It Easy”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “Hotel California” are just a snippet of their songs.
If you haven’t read about his passing, you can do so here.
My first, true experience with Glenn Frey, turning a teen into a fan, was a little movie called, “Beverly Hills Cop” where the “Heat is On”.
Then there was a little television show called, “Miami Vice”. You know that show had drug dealers left and right. Perfect to sing about “The Smuggler’s Blues”. Glenn even appeared in an episode (maybe it was two).
Either way, Glenn was a talented artist and he will be missed by many.
