5 Years Later

On a brutal Monday in 2016, we lost Glenn Frey. 5 years later, it's another Monday, and I think about that day. 5 years. I guess this is a "milestone"? In a way, it's just another number, but it feels different. More intense.

So, this year, we're making a special thread on the message board to celebrate Glenn's life. Feel free to visit if you'd like a little extra comfort today.

But regardless, as long as we remember, as long as his music echoes in our souls, he's never really gone - be it 5 years later, or 50.

CD / DVD Compilation available!

Exciting news! A new Glenn Frey compilation entitled Above The Clouds: The Collection is now available!

The following is culled from Glenn Frey's official Facebook:


Celebrate the very best of Glenn Frey’s solo career with a stunning four-disc 3 CD/ DVD box set, Above The Clouds: The Collection, out May 11, 2018. Above the Clouds compiles the key elements of Frey’s music both before and after the Eagles became international superstars, showcasing the broad range and wide influence of the Detroit-bred singer-songwriter. 

The first disc features The Very Best of Glenn Frey and is chock-full of major chart hits. Disc 2 explores the classics from his catalog, while the third disc highlights his early output with longtime friend JD Souther, known as Longbranch Pennywhistle making its digital debut. The final disc, is a live DVD culled from a performance at the National Stadium in Dublin, Ireland in 1992 on the Strange Weather tour.


There is a longer description as well as a tracklisting on Amazon.

What a treat for Glenn Frey fans!

Also on his Facebook is this fantastic promotional video:

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.

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."

Glenn's birthday 2020

Hello, November 6th. We meet again!

Glenn would have been 72 today.

I associate the number "72" more with the Eagles' first album's run up the charts than with an age when it comes to Glenn Frey.

I've been playing that album and a few more today to celebrate him, and I'll be drinking a toast as well.

At the risk of being trite, I hope all the Glenn fans out there are taking it easy in these troubled times.

Glenn's birthday

It's November 6th, 2019. Whenever this day rolls around now, the first thing I think is "Glenn would have been...." 

This year it would have been 71.

And I think about the ways we can celebrate the man by remembering him and all he gave us, especially on the day he was born into this world.

One thing I'm definitely doing today: listening to my Glenn Frey / Eagles playlist that covers the entirety of his epic career.

Happy birthday, Glenn.

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.
