    Every second thought in my head is, 'Glenn's dead.' It's like I have to keep reminding myself of it. I still can't quite believe it.

    For those who say they're surprised by their own grief - after all, they didn't even know him, it just goes to show you the power of music. Music can seep into our souls until it becomes part of us - part of our memories, part of our dreams, part of our entire lives. Glenn's music, the Eagles music, was that powerful. Some here say the music got them through some bad times in their lives, and all of us have good memories of listening to the Eagles. That's the good part of this. The music will always live on.

There have been a half dozen musicians who I've "felt" a close bond with, and Glenn is one of them. He's the first one of the close few to die (god, it doesn't seem right to type that word). This is the first time that I've experienced this. I'm still having a hard time sleeping. I don't want to take my Glenn posters down, but seeing them hurts alot.

    Agree with you (though we cannot know)--I think he gave an enormous gift by finishing the tour if he wasn't feeling well, as seems likely to me. What a guy.

    T&H--loved your pictures and quotes--what a nice tribute to see.

    Hadn't been on this site since the Survivor contest for LROE. But you were the first people I thought about, and where I wanted to be, when I heard the news. I am so appreciative to Soda for making this site happen.

    I want to get something off of my chest. I think that this is part of why I've been affected so much. Glenn's death has reminded me of my dad's death in many ways, and so, I've been thinking of him as well. Both were born in November and died in January. Both had pneumonia and GI problems that partially caused their deaths. Both were put into medically induced comas. (The images of seeing my dad like that are forever etched in my brain. No one should have to see that or go through it). Thinking about my dad has stirred up some memories that I had stored away never to think of again.

    Does anyone remember in which article Irving said this?

    I wonder if it will be a memorial concert. I can't see something like a televised service, such as for Whitney Houston or Michael Jackson. Glenn was too private.

    Don Felder has put out a statement which is a slightly expanded version of the one he put out on Facebook and, for me, it's better for the expansion.
    I have many wonderful memories of those years and the many miles I travelled with Glenn, filled with laughter, song, parties, hugs and brotherly bonds. Glenn was the James Dean of the band. He was the leader that we all looked to for direction and by far the coolest guy in the band. It saddens me a great deal that we were never able to address the issues that came between us and talk them through. Sadly now we will never get the chance.

    ETA: I take Don Felder's statement as sincere and I appreciate it.

    Remembering Glenn Frey

    I have been lucky enough to have attended several Eagles concerts. I also have been lucky enough to have seen each member perform as an individual.


    Being married to Tiffanny Twisted changed me from being a casual fan to a die hard one. I think I own every recording the Eagles have made, both as a group and as individual artists. Whenever one would go to an Eagles concert you knew something awesome was about to take place. One thing I could see right away was Glenn Frey was an amazing front man. I don't think I have ever seen anyone more at ease in front of 20,000 people. He possessed the amazing ability to, not only be comfortable in front of a huge crowd, but to feed off their energy. But he also possessed another amazing quality.


    On May 18, 2012, I was fortunate enough to see him at The Sands Hotel and Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I remember the crowd getting a little restless because the show started kind of late. But when he took the stage everything changed. As he performed and spoke to the crowd he was slowly turning a concert hall into a coffee house. I have never seen a performer create a more intimate performance with his audience than I did on this night. If you don't believe me several other Border members were in attendance including Tiffanny Twisted (my date for life), Always Been a Dreamer, Pray for Daylight, Perfect Little Sister, Va. is for Eagles Lovers, and our web mistress, a rock star in her own right, Sodascouts. That is how I will remember Glenn Frey. A great star, so able and willing to share his many talents and gifts.


    Glenn, you may have checked out, but you can never leave...the music and your fans will never let you.

    I haven't been around here in awhile but I've been lurking since I heard the news. I hate that we're all going through this but there is some solace in knowing others feel how I do.

    Like AlreadyGone95 wrote about, there's a handful of musicians that I've really bonded with in my life and Glenn is the first one I've lost. When David Bowie passed, I began dreading the day I'd lose one of them. I didn't think it would be so soon. I didn't think it would be Glenn.

    I thought the same as many of you - no news was good news. He'd bounce back like he had in the past. I had a weird feeling as I went to a show at the Kennedy Center two nights before the Honors taping this year. I was sad that the boys wouldn't be there and hoped Glenn was recovering.

    I still can't put into words the impact of his passing. I wasn't around for the 70s but I fell in love with Glenn first as a solo artist as a little kid in the 80s and I got into the Eagles around HFO. He is one of the few artists I can truly remember loving my entire life. To think I won't see him or hear him sing again is devastating. I keep listening to his songs trying to remember the joy they've brought me but all I can do for now is cry. I know one day I'll smile at them again.
