I'm back!

I'm back from my trip to Las Vegas to see Stevie Nicks perform (She's wonderful - I love her!) and I'm ready to update. The downloads are: a video of Frey doing Strange Weather in Germany (Sorry it's cut off, that's the way I got it) and an MP3 of the Eagles doing King of Hollywood in Alpine Valley, 1980.

I also added abstracts to all of the major articles on the article/interview page. Phew, that took a while!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everybody! To celebrate, have a listen to Wild Mountain Thyme from the Frey Dublin concert! It may be a Scottish ditty, but the Irish sing it with spirit. Download it as an. mpg (43 megs) or download it as a .wmv (10 megs)

Blogger weirdness and changes

Some of the entries on the update page here have suddenly been put out of order by my Blogger software (I have the Blogger code embedded into my homepage). I'm messing around with it to see if I can fix it - sorry for the confusion. And while I messed around, I decided to add a "post a comment" link to the entries.

Edited to add: hopefully I've got them back in order now, after much time and effort!

R.I.P. Richard Jeni

Comedian Richard Jeni passed away this past Saturday. In memory, I put up the interview he did with Frey back in 1995 on the video download page.

Pebble Beach, Pepsi, and Already Gone

I put up the clips of Frey from Day 2 of Pebble Beach (thanks Julie!) They're on my Pebble Beach 2007 page.

I also put up one of the versions of Frey's 1985 Pepsi commercial with Don Johnson on the Fun Stuff Video Page. It's the version where you have both "You Belong to the City" and "Better in the USA" (or, rather, the Pepsi-fied counterpart "Pepsi in the USA").

Finally, in honor of its winning On the Border Song Survivor, Already Gone is both the video and audio featured multimedia download. The video is from Houston 1976 and the audio is from Boston 1974. While I was personally pulling for Best of My Love to win, I have to give AG its props - it is one rockin' song.

Happy Birthday, Randy!

Randy Meisner, former bassist of the Eagles, turns 61 today. In order to celebrate, I put up a few goodies on The Border (our Eagles message board). They're temporary, so get 'em while you can!

Winter Wear and Download Overhaul

As usual, I have new downloads up this weekend: an MP3 of The Heat Is On from Tokyo 1992, and a video of Take It Easy from a 1973 performance. As is my new policy, it's up in both .mpg and .wmv file formats.

In fact, last weekend, I decided to reorganize my multimedia download pages for increased user-friendliness, adding copies of .wmv files to the video download pages - including the ones in the filmography for Frey's TV shows and movies. In my reorganization, I separated out all of the audio and video files and gave each set their own page in the Fun Stuff Downloads and the Live Treat Downloads. It was quite a job! Finally, to help everyone find everything as easily as possible, I developed a centralized Grand Index of Permanent Multimedia Downloads.

And one last download: I added three very short clips from an interview Frey did praising the Beach Boys from their Endless Harmony documentary.

An additional treat: Glenn Frey workin' the ski gear in this 1988 Rolling Stone spread. (Must be nice to be athletically inclined; the one time I tried to ski, I wound up accidentally going down the slope backwards, screaming in terror, stabbing my poles ineffectually at the snow in an attempt to stop myself before I careened into a hapless passerby. And no, I wasn't successful. I hit the poor guy like a ton of bricks. Unsurprising, though - I found it a daunting challenge just to get off of the ski lift without falling down and getting nailed by the chair.)

River of Dreams video!

Recently, I stumbled across a copy of a video I had never seen before - River of Dreams from 1992. It's a very sweet video co-starring Glenn Frey's real-life wife Cindy. Click on the River of Dreams video page to see it, and some screenshots.
