    Someone else posted this article in the press/blogs thread, but I think it it belongs here as well.
    http://www.storytellersunplugged.com...our-world-now/

    I'll post the relevant part of the article.

    Q: [Newport Beach, CA]: Ösorry for your loss [Glenn Frey], Sully. Another leftie creative genius is gone.

    A: Left-handedness does seem to correlate or at least associate with creativity. However, Glenn was ambidextrous (which may be an even deeper association with creativity). He golfed, wrote and swung a baseball bat left but played guitar right-handed.

    Q: [Many recent emails/messages ask if I was at the private memorial for Glenn Frey at The Forum in California which has been reported in the media and speculated about on fan blogs.]

    A: Actually, it was styled as a celebration of Glennís life, and I was there. Celebration with music, celebration with stories and laughter, celebration with food Ė this was life lived large in the key of G(lenn). It was a little surreal, as if all walks of life had suddenly come together, as indeed they had.
    No pretenses, no putting on airs, no intrusive media. The invitation said that dress was Glenn Frey standard Ė ďJeans and a sport coat or a damn fine suit. Players choice!Ē And the quality of the communication, the music, and the table, as always with Glenn and Cindy Frey, was first-class plus.
    Picture DisneyWorld where the frontiers are all intermingled: one minute youíre chatting with Stevie Wonder, Don Henley or Kareem Abdul Jabbar and 15 minutes later itís Randy Newman, Cameron Crowe or Paul Shaffer. The musical offerings culminated with a rockiní finale that included the Eagles past and present, Bob Seger, Paul Stanley of KISS, Jackson Browne, JD Souther, and too many others to remember. But the number that got to me the most was the poignant last performance of ďDesperadoĒ Ė the signature song that brought Glenn and I together in the first place. Iíd seen the grim and tragic (it seemed to me) presentation of that musical masterpiece the night before at the Grammys, and it suddenly struck me here at The Forum that this was the last time it would ever be performed with the remaining Eagles. There were the dimmed lights and the empty space where Glenn should have stood, and suddenly with the last fading chord the waves of shock and denial ended and I knew with crushing finality: Glenn was gone.
    Itís called closure, but itís never that. Acceptance is what it is. Acceptance and celebration, which is what I felt sharing quality time at the Frey house the next day. Accomplished and capable Cindy Frey is a beacon of positive energy and honest emotion, and the younger Freys have left nothing untapped in the gene pool. Taylorís muse has all the fire and pz-azz of Glennís muse, especially in her writing; Deacon can melt the hearts and rock the socks off any audience; and Otis will charm you with his candor and zest for life. Americaís future and the Frey legacy are in good hands. Maybe Glenn said it best in one of his last songs, the eerily prophetic Itís Your World Now:
    ďItís your world now
    Use well the time
    Be part of something good
    Leave something good behind
    The curtain falls
    I take my bow
    Thatís how itís meant to be
    Itís your world nowÖĒ
    -Kim-

    Thank you AG95. The linked article at the bottom is well worth the read also. I saw it was already linked earlier several pages ago, so I won't post any of it, but I will re-post the link:

    Bob Seger, talking about Glenn. This may be clips from old interviews, but still some stories that are new to me, like why Glenn was keen to sing background on "Against the Wind".

    I hope this is okay to do, but if it's not for legal reasons, let me know. I took pics from my phone of the Life Magazine tribute for those who passed in 2016. Glenn was one of the people and they had Travis Tritt say something about him.




    Same pic as the 2nd one but I just focused more on Glenn than capturing the whole image:

    Thank you for posting that. I'm going to extract a couple of bits (just in case your scans disappear).
    He was very down-to-earth, very well-grounded. Here was a guy who could easily have been arrogant, but he was totally the opposite. Iíve always admired anyone who can have so much success and remain humble. Iíd think, ďThatís the way it should be, and if he can be that way, why canít I?Ē
    It's always heart-warming (and reassuring) to read something like that. It makes me feel that my trust is not misplaced. I know they were accused of arrogance back in the 70s but my suspicion is that a lot of that was bravado - putting on the game face. In interviews, even back then, he seemed to have a lot of self-awareness.


    I would really like for everybody who reads this to go back and find every single piece of music that Glenn Frey was ever involved in and just listen and be reminded of what a great talent weíve lost. But as incredibly sad as it is to lose him, the wonderful thing is that his music will live on forever.
    Hear! Hear!


    Something that's become clear to me is that even without Don, Glenn's lyrics are good. They may lack the references to literature but they tell their story and hold together. I don't have to listen to "classic rock" playlists for long to realise that the majority of songs that were successful in that genre had pretty poor lyrics.
