    Yes, he has posted on his Facebook page which linked through to the Eagles page (sorry I can't remember how to post the link!).

    I thought it was quite a gracious and appropriate message.

    Is it just me or does this article indicate that he was in a coma for more than a month and that the doctors gave up about a month ago? http://pagesix.com/2016/01/19/glenn-...ays-bob-seger/

    I have been trying to post since yesterday afternoon (NZ time). I have been thinking about all my Border friends, & sending you all my love & prayers (as well as Glenn's family & his band mates.

    We have a place to share our heartbreak & our happy memories, along with people who actually understand just how much we love this music & this man. Thank you Nancy for creating this site; that so many of us have spent so much time talking about the Eagles & their music over the years is a tribute to Glenn's vision, talent & sheer hard work (and the whole band, of course).

    I will treasure my concert memories; to be able to share a concert with my daughter (now 10) was a privilege & I am so grateful the band made the long trek down to New Zealand last year.

    Ave atque Vale, Glenn.

    Very nice of The Boss.... Stephen Colbert on the Late Show CBS also paid homage to Glenn tonight.
    PS: I just noticed on youtube he had done TIE in September when he made a guest appearence in a Jackson Brown show in Red Bank NJ.

Or at least, no real "reunions" because it wouldn't be the same without Glenn; like McCartney, Harrison, and Starr said that it wouldn't be the same without John.

    One thing that has sort of rubbed me the wrong way, and I am not trying to start anything or put everyone down, is the way people have been reacting to Felder's post. Saying that he is classy and his post is a class act, did they not expect him to say something about Glenn's death? It's really frustrating how people are commenting negative things about Frey and how Felder has taken the high road by reacting to Glenn's passing or how maybe now Henley can forgive Felder and bring him back into the group. I've tried to not respond or say anything to the commenters but I figured I could vent in safety here.

    RIP Glenn, you will be sorely missed.
    This bothers me too (not Don't post, but the comments). I just posted about in the Don Felder section about this, because I don't want to ruin a beautiful Glenn thread.

    From what I read in that article, I would interpret that as he spent some of that time awake, but would (gradually?) struggle more with his breathing.

    It does sound like he had the best care possible.

    I loved Bruce's version! It works that way too - slower. Usually I don't like melody variations, but I loved some of his there. Sort of made it sound like his song.

    There are certain things I'd like to say at this point:

    Like was pointed out before, it's wonderful how occasional posters have "come out of the woodwork". Nice to see you all!

    I wish very much strength to all of you who have similar illnesses. Let it never take over your lives - especially your spiritual strength!

    It was very sad to read Seger's (I believe it was Seger) words about the specialists finally throwing their hands in the air a month ago. Sad, because Glenn and his loved ones knew at that point what was going to happen.
