Standing on the Corner Festival to Honor Glenn with Statue

Winslow, Arizona was made famous by the Jackson Browne / Glenn Frey co-write "Take It Easy," and today they are unveiling a statue in Glenn's honor at the corner from the song (indeed, they have a park there named after the line from the song and hold a festival there yearly). You can get more information the poster here.

UPDATE: The dedication has been moved to Sept. 24, time to be determined, because the guy who did the statue got "delayed" in bringing it here. Makes one wonder why he thought waiting until the last minute was a great idea...

Glenn Frey has died

I am sorry to say that Glenn Frey has passed away on Monday, January 18, 2016.

Prayers for his family and all of us who love him so very much.

He changed my life, just like he did so many others. There are a lot of hearts broken tonight.

This is the message from the Eagles website:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of husband, best friend, father, comrade, and Eagles founder, Glenn Frey, in New York City on Monday, January 18th, 2016.

Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia.

The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery.

Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community & millions of fans worldwide.

Happy birthday to Glenn Frey and Glenn Frey Online!

On this day in 1948, Glenn Frey was born in Detroit... and the world hasn't been the same since!

It's also the 10th anniversary of the opening of Glenn Frey Online. Wow... hard to believe it's been that long since this site went live!  Maybe it's time for a mega-update...  I'll be working on it!
