My Man, Glenn Frey

My Man, Glenn Frey 

If there was one defining album of my youth it was “On the Border” by the Eagles. We blasted it on an 8-track while cruising around town, and got the vinyl album to listen to at home. To this day I know every note and every word on this album and they all bring back happy memories. Even the sad tribute song to a lost friend of the band’s makes me smile. It’s beautiful and a fitting tribute to Graham Parsons from the Flying Burrito Brothers.

The shocking news this evening of the passing of Glenn Frey made me think of those carefree days listening to the music of my youth. I’m very happy that I was able to see the Eagles perform live several years back. It’s hard to accept the fact that I won’t ever be able to again.

I really can’t come up with the words to express how I feel about Glenn Frey tonight. But I can’t think of a more fitting tribute musically than the one he collaborated on all those years ago. This is a song called “My Man” by the Eagles from the On the Border album:

Rest in Peace, Glenn Frey.
