    Yesterday I heard a live versiojn of Sultans Of Swing & it got me going. Why Sultans? Glenn was one & he was totally committed to the music. Then I heard Telstar & Let It Grow by Clapton, and all those melancholy chords hit me very hard. And then I heard Drive-in Saturday. And I froze up again.

    Dr Brian May pays tribute to David & Glenn,

    I will never hear Starman the same way again. I apply it to both of them.

    I always thought Brian has a beautiful voice. I can't watch the video of him and Luciano Pavarotti singing Too Much Love Can Kill You.

    Thank you Brian for that tribute. He knows what the guys are going through right now when it comes to losing a bandmate. He, Roger and John lost Freddie almost 25 years ago.

    More from Joe, in reply to Bob Lefsetz:

    Hi Bob-

    Thought I'd check in -

    First, Thanks to everyone who has posted on your Glenn thread. Very comforting in a very awkward and sad time.

    I haven't done any media- period. It's not that I can't find the words, it's that there are no words. I've tried and all I have is a blank page. That's how I feel. That's how we all feel, Maybe later, I'll have something, but not right now.

    So, Thank You for your kind and intelligent overview, and Thanks to everybody who also checked in.

    I keep coming back to one of Glenn's favorite ways to sum things up:

    "Ladies and Gentlemen........
    Elvis has left the building"

    Joe Walsh

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Thank you for posting the Bob Lefsetz thread. It made me cry. Joe Walsh's comment is touching.

    I'm glad to hear something from Joe. My heart breaks for him. When I read the Elvis quote I lost it!

    I feel like Joe. I'm a pretty good writer if I do say so myself, but when I try to express the sense of loss I feel now that Glenn is gone, I find all my words are inadequate.

    I'll never adore any male musician the way I adore Glenn Frey, and now that he's gone, I'm lost for words.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Sad for your pain--can't really express it in words. Your heartbreak is palpable. Thank you for sharing all of this with us.

    I'm at the only words are to swear a bunch of times in a row point in mourning.

    I haven't been able to come up with words either, especially not for what he means to me. I've been a hardcore fan for less than a year, but I've became enthralled by Glenn. The only thing that I have been able to do is the little tribute that I posted very early on in the other thread:

    You first had a peaceful easy feeling and took it easy in 1972.
    You were an outlaw man in 1973.
    You sang about another tequila sunrise in 1973.
    You became already gone in 1974.
    You paid your respects to James Dean in 1974.
    You told us that we can't hide our lyin' eyes in 1975.
    You were a new kid in town in 1977.
    You had a heartache tonight in 1979.
    You sang about the one you love in 1982.
    You went to Partytown in 1982.
    You had the smuggler's blues in 1984.
    You sang about being an allnighter in 1984.
    The heat was on for you in 1985.
    You belonged to the city in 1985.
    You were livin' right in 1988.
    You sang about true love in 1988.
    You went to flip city for the Ghostbusters 2 movie in 1989.
    You sang about the long hot summer in LA in 1992.
    You were on a river of dreams in 1992.
    You got over it 1994.*
    You wanted to be called on in 1995.
    You didn't want there to be anymore cloudy days in 2004(or 2007)
    You wondered how long in 2007.
    You told your daughter (and us) that we aren't alone in 2007.
    You dreamed that there was no more war in 2007.
    You got your kicks on route 66 in 2012.
    You told us about the history of your band in 2013.
    Now, in 2016, you belong to the ages.

    RIP to Eagles founder, guitarist, and vocalist Glenn Frey, Nov. 6th, 1948- Jan. 18th, 2016. Thank you for doing those things for us! Your music will live on!
