Obit: Glen Frey Dead

Bloomin 'eck, another legend gone, great music from my youth, it has been a harsh winter indeed so far
 
Tenuous link,I've spent a week in a hotel in California.
 
If I take it any easier, I'll be horizontal.

To be perfectly honest.

So God has most of a band:

Guitars, Bowie and Frey
Bass, Lemmie
Drums, Dale Griffin, ex Mott the Hoople

Just short a keyboard player. Elton must be a bit nervous at the moment.

It's a well known fact that the Devil has all the best music.

Indeed. His ring is probably puckering like [insert simile or metaphor here].

I have some good news for people hurt by this thread.

I walked into the room, Zero Alpha handed me her Kindle playing the Eagles' Already Gone. The clip stated Deacon Frey. I looked, listened, peered over glasses and decided that it was indeed Glen Frey. Looked like a young him, sounded like a young him. But when the fúck did he perform with (I assumed) John Deacon? And why?

No. Turns out Deacon Frey is the dead spit of his father in every respect (less, Zero Alpha pointed out, the 1970s porno tache). And he's touring. With Henley, Walsh and Schmitt. As The Eagles.

Mr Google suggested they're touring the UK next year.

I'm up for some of that.

Good stuff.
I saw them a few years back - great concert, great sound, lengthy sets, many of their 'individual' hits like Boys of Summer, Life's Been Good etc
Only marred by a whole bunch of cnuts air-guitaring to Hotel California
We were just remembering Wemberlee 96. It'll be 23 years on.
