    Another music legend gone too soon. The Eagles were one of my very favorites growing up. RIP Glenn Frey. You will not be forgotten.

    Thanks to my older brothers I grew up with the Eagles too. I know he didn't write it, but "And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself" is one of my all-time favorite bit of lyrics. I can hear him singing it even without playing it.

    Damn. I feel like I'm going to cry.

    RIP Glenn.

    Glenn co-wrote and sang on most of the Eagles hits, including "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise," "Lyin' Eyes," and "Heartache Tonight," to name a few. He also co-wrote "Hotel California" and "Desperado" with Don Henley and took home 6 Grammys with the band.

    Don Henley said, "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. He added ... "We built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed. But Glenn was the one who started it all."
    Glenn was 67. RIP.

    “It's Your World Now”
    Written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin
    From the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden album

    A perfect day, the sun is sinkin' low
    As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow
    The time we shared went by so fast
    Just like a dream, we knew it couldn't last
    But I'd do it all again
    If I could, somehow
    But I must be leavin' soon
    It's your world now

    It's your world now
    My race is run
    I'm moving on
    Like the setting sun
    No sad goodbyes
    No tears allowed
    You'll be alright
    It's your world now

    Even when we are apart
    You'll always be in my heart
    When dark clouds appear in the sky
    Remember true love never dies

    But first a kiss, one glass of wine
    Just one more dance while there's still time
    My one last wish: someday, you'll see
    How hard I tried and how much you meant to me

    It's your world now
    Use well your time
    Be part of something good
    Leave something good behind
    The curtain falls
    I take my bow
    That's how it's meant to be
    It's your world now
    It's your world now
    It's your world now

    My local news broke with this almost an hour ago. I couldn't find any major news that had confirmed and was hoping it was a hoax.
    Since then CNN and CBS also had the story up.
    Very sad to have it confirmed.

    I've got the fireplace lit because I can't get warm, but I've got the windows open and I'm blasting the Eagles for all the town to hear.
    Oy, what a day.

    Unhappy

    R.I.P. Glenn. Still have my original Eagles LP's from when I was a teenager. Loved all the classics including Hotel California, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Boys of Summer, and some I can't remember the titles. There was a beautiful one I think the title was Hollywood Waltz. Such a sad start to a new year that all these great performers are dying.

    Partial lyrics to another great song of theirs: "This is the last lonely evening that you'll have to spend before your little heart is on the mend".
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
