    They definitely had better Tee shirts in those days too. Whats with the oriental woman and the shoulder movement on both videos?

    Good to see Jackson Browne on Piano on one of the best live versions ive seen of Take it Easy.

    PS. That kid will be over 40 years old now!

    Whoa! That must've been awesome. That song gives me chills whenever I hear it.

    I was thinking the same thing, Dreamer. Oh my gosh, that was intense. He played more lead that night than I've ever seen him do before or since. He's still got it!

    Like Don's drumming, Glenn is a far better lead guitarist than he seems to think. Check out his slide guitar work on the Christchurch version of Smuggler's Blues for instance.

    I love those California Jam clips as well! There is also one of Midnight Flyer where Glenn plays some cool train sounds.

    As for the little boy, I have read that it might be Jackson's son. He did have a young son at that time.

    Yes he does, Ethan. But not that old i think. That kid would have been born late 60s maybe 1970 ish.

    Thanks for posting that video RC. Glenn certainly plays the guitar so well on it. It's sooo clean and precise. I also filmed him doing lead guitar on Witchy Woman in London at the first LROOE concert and again he rocked it. I'll see if I can find it and post it here.

    He certainly is a far better lead guitarist than I think he gives himself credit for!

    Thanks for adding the "Take It Easy" video, TF! Another super live version of the song.

    I love how Glenn breaks into a smile as the crowd roars with approval when they start the song. And I love the interaction between Glenn , Randy and Bernie.


    I've got a peaceful, easy feeling
    And I know Glenn won't let me down

    Yeah, that is hot!

    Here's another one from that same tour where he really rocks it:

    WARNING TO THE LADIES: Prepare yourself, Glenn is tres sexy here. Of course, I am biased, since this is my favorite look for him. His HFO hair should win awards.

    Glenn told a story one time that back when they were a new band and an opening act, people in the audience would just look clueless about them until they started TIE and then they'd go, "Oh, they're THOSE guys!" lol. My, how things have changed!

    Ethan Browne was born in 1973.

    I thought the kid was one of Felder's.
