    Default Glenn Frey Statue Unveiled at Standin' on the Corner Festival in Winslow, AZ- Sept 23

    Glennsallnighter has just visited Winslow, Arizona and she discovered that for their festival next month, they are planning on unveiling a new statue of Glenn along with a tribute ceremony. The poster is below:



    What a lovely idea. Can anyone make it?

    That's awesome they are doing that!!! I saw a post recently on Tumblr in Glenn's tag with someone saying they were planning on having a statue made of Glenn to put with the other statue of Jackson at the Standin on the Corner Park. I'm so glad they really are!!!

    Wow! This is so cool that they are doing this. Soda and I just got tickets yesterday to see Timothy in Nashville on 9/25. Then, we hear about this last night. When Soda first mentioned this, my initial reaction was that it would be a 5 - 10 minute unveiling ceremony that wasn't really worth going to see. But, it sounds like it's going to be more a tribute to Glenn. So now, we need to figure out if we can fly to Arizona for this event on the 23rd and then get back to Nashville for Tim's show on Sunday. Certainly doable, I hope.

    BTW - love that poster!

    Bob Hall, director of the Winslow Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center, says that he hasn't seen a mock up of the statue, but he believes that it will be seventies Glenn, ie long hair & mustache.

    Yes, it should definitely be 70s Glenn. Kinda funny , didn't Jackson write that line and Glenn added " there's a girl my Lord in a flatbed ford...". Doesn't matter, Glenn breathe life into those lines when he sang them!

    This is probably the best tribute he could have, cause it just shows his impact and the ban's impact on American music. I bet even more people will be visiting there now!

    How great for the town to do this! Now there will be a permanent visible memorial. I wonder if any of the auction items are Glenn-related.

    How very cool of the city to do this for Glenn! I hope some borderers are able to go to the dedication.

    So happy they are doing something to permanently honour Glenn, and there's no better place to do it. I still think the 'Standin' on a corner' line summarises early '70s California better than anything else I've ever heard. It captures the hedonistic, youthful and carefree attitude perfectly, and it's only fitting that the statue is of that long-haired, mustached twenty-something who sang it.

    I definitely need to go there now!
