    Default Glenn and Hockey Player Gene Carr

    I was doing an internet search and stumbled across this cute piece of trivia.

    "[Gene Carr] befriended rock star Glenn Frey of the Eagles in the mid-1970s. Frey would often wear Carr's No. 12 jersey onstage at concerts."

    I found it here: http://www.hockeydraftcentral.com/1971/71004.html

    Didn't Glenn mention onstage at Rama that he had had dinner with a retired hockey player friend of his? Maybe it was Gene!

    By gosh Molly - I think you may be on to something. I do remember he said he had had dinner with some friends. I can remember anything else though cause my mind was too busy being jealous that he didn't have dinner with me!

    I wouldn't be surprised if you were right - Carr IS Canadian, after all!

    That's rather cute that Glenn wore the no. 12 jersey, and how cool to see a photo, thanks, Soda. Molly and Dreamer, your posts about Rama have just made me very jealous! If I ever win the lottery....

    It's funny, all 3 nights, I tried to memorize every second of what was happening around me, but it wasn't until Nancy posted that link that I recalled that Glenn had made that comment. I wonder what else I've completely forgotten.

    No, Z, I remember the Schwetty moments vividly!

    Damn - you beat me to it!

    And sorry GEF - but, if you don't make plans to get yourself over here this year for the tour, you're gonna really be jealous.
