    Wow. I really don't know what else to say. Soda and HH will have better a better memory of what all was said. I took a notebook to take notes but then didn't even open it. At first, it was hard to hear. It was Glenn and Phil Galdston (a member of NYU's Artists' Faculty) sitting on chairs on a stage at an angle to each other (Glenn was angled towards us!) Whoever hooked up the microphone to his lapel put it on his left lapel and he spent the evening talking to Phil on his right, away from the mic.

    He looked great (of course), and he wore a suit and tie. He sang It's Your World Now at the end, acoustic guitar only, and it brought tears to my eyes.

    They asked us to turn off all electronic devices and it was quiet enough I knew the clicking of a shutter would be heard...so no pics. I'd planned on getting some at the end, but it all ended very quickly. I'll try and make up for it at Vegas next week.

    One of the highlights of the evening, of course, was meeting HH and Soda.

    I'll say it again. Wow.

    Just got home. Had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting VA. The lecture was very interesting and we learned some new things. One special treat that we weren't expecting was the performance of "It's Your World Now". We will write up a more detailed review tomorrow when we have more time, but here are some tidbits. . . .

    Glenn admitted that Longbranch Pennywhistle was a bad name. He said he knew it wasn't a very good album when it was released (and he was right).

    He talked about how he met David Geffin and asked if he could make some demos at Muscle Shoals while he was there with Linda Ronstadt. Geffin told him OK, but keep it to $500.00. Glenn ended up spending $2300.00 and that's when Geffin told him he needed to be in a band because they could cover his weaknessess with their strengths and help him showcase his strengths.

    He said that he was never concerned with doing more than one lead song on an album. He recognized that Henley's voice was "money" and he had no problem giving Henley the majority of the leads if his voice was more suited to the song.

    The more we write, the more we realize that we can't do it justice tonight with just these tidbits, so we'll leave it at that for now and do this right when we have more time. However there are plenty of highlights left.

    How generous & open hearted, as usual, but I would love to tell him that his voice is 'money' too.

    I'm so glad you had the privilege of witnessing this event.

    I bet this was a really awesome thing to be a part of---so different from the norm for one of our guys.

    Love how modest Glenn is. He's an amazing musician, but he seems so humble and willing to give others credit where credit is due.

    When Soda sent me a text after and told me he had sang IYWN, all I could think was WOW---that made those ladies awfully happy!!! I know how much that song means to so many Glenn fans here on the board. I only wish we could have a video of it. How wonderful that would of been to hear acoustically.

    Anxiously awaiting the rest of the details.

    Wow - Soda and HH called me last night after the lecture to fill me in since they knew how bombed I am about missing it. Sounds like it was an awesome, unique experience indeed. I'll leave the details for them to tell, but I can't wait to hear more too.

    Just got back home. I'd love to chill out and post about last night, but instead, I've got to get ready to go to work! I teach at 2:30 this afternoon (our break is only two days long). No rest for the weary. Totally worth it, though! It was indeed a unique experience and I'm very glad I went.
