70

Today would have been Glenn's 70th birthday. It's hard to wrap one's head around that.

70 is the age that, to me at least, is when a person officially hits the "old" category.

They may not act old or feel old. The headspace is certainly more important that any number. In all the meaningful ways, they may not be old. If they're really lucky, they may not even look old. However, strictly in terms of age... when they have to check the box that says 70-79 on forms, they have hit the old folks category.

And Glenn never made it there.

I'll be thinking about him a lot today, and I won't be the only one. There will be people thinking of him today especially around the globe. He affected so many with his music.

As we do, we all have to remember the lyrics of that prescient song, "It's Your World Now," and its admonition of "No tears allowed." We must focus on celebrating his life.

So, let's make it a happy 70th birthday, for Glenn.

New remix of "Part of Me, Part of You" has been released

A newly remixed, considerably shortened version of "Part of Me, Part of You" is now available as a digital download on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Part-Me-You-2018-Remix/dp/B07DFZXJ38/ref=sr_1_1?s=dmusic&ie=UTF8&qid=1528989942&sr=1-1&keywords=glenn+frey+remix

It brings forward instrumentation and some backing vocals; it removes the following verse and the bridge/chorus/almost all of the outro after it: "I look at you; your whole life stands before you. I look at me and I'm running out of time. Time has brought us here to share these moments - to look for something we may never find."

Two years later

For the second anniversary of Glenn's death, I've decided to do the updating that I should have done while he was alive... but I just got so busy with my job that the site took a backseat. I regret that, but now at least this site can be an archive to honor him.

I've added a page for the After Hours tour - an archive of the dates, information about the setlist and musicians, and links to fan reviews.

Also, I've added photos... lots of photos.
 I hope these treats will help us think of happier times on this sad anniversary.

One year later

It's been one year since Glenn Frey left this world. Words fail me when I try to write about it, but here is a song Bob Seger wrote and released for free on his website today about Glenn:

Jack Tempchin has also recorded a version of their co-written song "Part of Me, Part of You" in Glenn's honor which will be part of Tempchin's upcoming album:

We'll never forget you, Glenn.
