    Thanks, Pippin! Great song...I love it! I think it would have worked well on the country record Glenn was contemplating. (Or whatever musical arrangement, for that matter!). Oh, to be able to hear him sing it!

    Great song. I can hear Glenn singing this. I'm just not a fan of Jack's voice.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    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." -Don Henley

    Me neither. Wishing Glenn had had the chance to record this!

    I think Jack Tempchin and JD Souther are kind of like Bob Dylan. Great songwriters, bot not great singers. I love all of their songs, but I much prefer to hear someone else do them. I also think the same about JJ Cale. Great songwriter, but Eric Clapton did his hit songs better. And I certainly felt the the LROOE version of Souther's How Long is the best version of that song. And I love Already Gone and PEF, of course.

    I know it makes a lot of Dylan hardcores mad but for almost every song of his, I can name someone who does it better. Knockin' On Heavens Door - Guns N' Roses, All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix, You Ain't Goin' Nowhere/Hey Mr. Tambourine Man - Byrds, Like A Rolling Stone - Rolling Stones, etc. The only song I actually like where Bob is singing is Positively 4th Street. I haven't found a cover I like - yet.

    Agreed everyone - There is a good reason that the best versions of these songwriter's songs were sung by others. To me, 'One More Time with Feeling' is one of Jack's stronger vocals though. but the song does have Glenn all over it. I can just imagine how different it could of been with Glenn's vocal and arranging talents.

    I love the idea of this book too, although I haven't finished it yet. Okay - finishing this is now officially on my 'To Do' list. I'm also one that loves math, and had to reteach myself over the years to tutor my nieces and nephews. I wish I had had this book during those times. It sure is a fresh and creative approach to the subject. And BTW - I don't remember how much previous discussion there has been on the board about the book, but Taylor thanks her entire family in the book. She also thanks Annabel Henley, but doesn't specify why - it falls under the category of 'others, without whom this book would not exist in the way it does now'.

    Well, I am embarrassed to to admit this, but I am one who hated math in school. I hated Algebra. However, I did very well in Geometry-go figure (It was very logical to me ). My strength was always History and English and related classes. I was a Poli Sci and Journalism major in college.

    And, I agree about Jack and Bob Dylan. Jack's voice sounded good but he is not a great singer. And no hate please, but I can not stand Bob Dylan's voice. I love Joan B's versions of many of his songs. I agree that the Byrds and the RS's did a much better version of those songs.

    I know Taylor did work as a tutor, and judging by the book those children were very fortunate! This is a clip where she speaks about the book with her co-author:

    I'm with you, NKIT-- I never liked math, and particularly hated algebra. Similarly, I also did better in geometry.
    Jack may not have the best voice, but it has a nice warmth. I have always enjoyed the earnestness and emotion of songwriters singing their own material, whatever their skill level. About Bob Dylan's voice, I will only say that my brother does a hysterical spot-on imitation of it, including his odd phrasing!

    FF - Thanks for posting that. The book received good reviews on Amazon. I think it is cool that she likes math. More girls need to be encouraged to enjoy math and teach it in such a way kids want to learn it. It was not done when I was a kid. I'm guessing Glenn was super smart in math too.

    Oh, thanks for posting this clip! I plan on getting this book. I used to be a math major, once, and thought I would teach math, but I just found I had no passion for it. One can't spend one's life doing what one has no passion for. This book looks really interesting to this "Word Person"!
