So sad, they seem to be dropping like flies.  Guitarist and singer for the Eagles.  Please merge or delete if thread already. 

Sad indeed.  Tough week.  Just goes to show that even with money and fame, in the end, we are all the same.

Famous or not, it hurts when loved-ones pass.

City girl, just seemed to find out early

How to open doors, with just a smile...

Tough to hear. That country band that went rock. If you were a bettin' man, you'd think Joe Walsh would be first to leave(lifestlye, & all)

Joe got sober a few years back, has a few songs about it on "Analog Man", which is a very good over all album, only 1 weak song to my ears.

So long Glen.

Analog Man?? Music(sheer poetry) to my ears...

Great Album, but Spanish Dancer is just a bit too high and nasal for me. Huge fan of  "Ordinary Average Guy" and "The Confessor" albums as well.


 Joe is on my list of underappreciated artists.

Another shocker..loved the Eagles and Glen Frey..what a year 2016 is starting out as...much talent leaving us...great words from Don Henley..

“He was like a brother to me; we were family, and like most families, there was some dysfunction. But, the bond we forged 45 years ago was never broken, even during the 14 years that the Eagles were dissolved. We were two young men who made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles with the same dream: to make our mark in the music industry — and with perseverance, a deep love of music, our alliance with other great musicians and our manager, Irving Azoff, we built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed.  

“But, Glenn was the one who started it all. He was the spark plug, the man with the plan. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn’t quit. He was funny, bullheaded, mercurial, generous, deeply talented and driven. He loved his wife and kids more than anything.  

“We are all in a state of shock, disbelief and profound sorrow. We brought our two-year ‘History of the Eagles Tour’ to a triumphant close at the end of July and now he is gone. I’m not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life.

“Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some.”
