    Thank you FreyFollower. I was going to post something this morning, but I didn't have time. You said it far better that I could. Funk50's post was very hurtful.

    It took a lot of work, by all of them, to achieve that level of pulling power, they'd be idiots to chuck it away after Glenn's death.
    I know the motivation is money, and that's what makes it so distasteful to me. It's not as if they don't have enough! Well, it's said that 'the love of money is the root of all evil'.

    Funk 50, you appear to be a very shallow person, or maybe you just like to upset people.

    'So you finally came right out and said it
    What took you so long''? (Phil Collins)

    The song to which you refer is a particular favourite of mine. For the record, I do NOT want anyone to hurt like I do. Far from it. What I had hoped was that most people on this board would agree with me that the band should not have continued, and on an even more basic level would at least pay some sort of lip service to Glenn Frey's loss.

    I may as well quote Mr Collins again:

    'Just leave, oh leave me alone with my dreams
    You've taken everything else
    You know what I mean'.

    Oh, and as for your smug reference to the 'future' which of course condemns people like me to be clinging on to memories while you stride purposefully on, here is someone else who died recently, Leonard Cohen:

    'I've seen the future, brother
    It is murder'.

    Goodbye.

    Great post FreyFollower but if you haven't noticed, I am constantly attacked for expressing my opinion. I'm just responding and defending myself. The "brush aside" comment isn't mine, it's one of many fired at me.

    I try my best to stick to the issues which means I pay little attention to who is posting, never mind their mental state.

    I am "focusing on the future" in a thread that's titled "Will they play again"

    For your information FF was referring to my physical health, not my 'mental state'. I am not going to waste my time explaining this to you. But if you are telling me that you don't ever notice who is posting, you are being extremely disingenuous.

    I had written yet another post trying to explain for the umpteenth time why you upset me with your 'Frey didn't matter' stuff. But it's pointless. Maybe once this farce has occurred you might realise what is wrong with it, but I doubt it.

    I don't remember posting that 'Frey didn't matter'. I thought he was band leader when he was alive

    Yes, they will play again. Yes, Glenn's son will play with them.

    I thought it might be Deacon. How do you all feel about that?

    Personally, Steph UK, it's as interesting to me as a new member of the backing band. I'll be quite shocked if Deacon and the secret special guest get to sing Glenn's full compliment of songs. Two or three, four at the most, between them is my guess.

    I expect Henley to take over Glenn's roll as mc and Henley and Walsh to do the majority of the lead vocals.
