    One of us must correct this at some point (I'm too lazy right now). He sure played more on the album than "acoustic guitar". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strang...enn_Frey_album)

    UTW - Thanks - I was looking for my cd. I thought Glenn played all the instruments on the album. I remember being surprised that he played drums and some of the other instruments I never knew or saw him play.

    Yeah, I think that credit was for POMPOY. But on Wikipedia it says that all he played on the whole album was acoustic guitar. As far as I know he played all the guitars except perhaps some on POMPOY. He played all the guitar solos on the album, but according to Wikipedia he only played acoustic. I will add at least electric guitar at some point, but he must have played some bass and keyboards too. However, when I added "harmony guitars" for Glenn to his OOTN (the song) credit on Wikipedia, someone took it away immediately. It's even mentioned in one of the Eagles books.

    Ugh, this is why I tell my students not to use Wikipedia as a reference. Some self-appointed expert is "correcting" incorrectly.

    Happy Belated 26 Birthday to Strange Weather.

    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

    Well - I'm a little late to the party, but ...

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO STRANGE WEATHER!!!

    As I have proclaimed many times throughout this thread, I adore this brilliant album! I happen to think it is the best solo album released by any of the band members - so strong from start to finish. Just wish more people were aware of it.

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

    I was browsing through this thread earlier today and my comment that I made when I did a song-by-song review of the album caught my attention:

    “If somebody told you this was your last night
    Wouldn't you want somebody to treat you right
    Throw you a party, take you for a ride downtown
    And be with all your old friends
    Before the ship goes down
    Just love me one more time
    Before the ship goes down”
    Wow! Those comments brought tears to my eyes knowing that Glenn's wishes were not to be. So very sad!
