    Default RIP Kenny Rogers

    RIP.

    While I wasn't a fan of his music, he is an icon and I love his part of the early Eagles history.

    Default Kenny Rogers, RIP

    Kenny Rogers has passed away at 81. He was at home with family under hospice care. I had not heard that he was ill.
    Prayers for his family.
    Of course, all Eagles' fans owe Kenny for helping Don/Shiloh get to California in the first place, etc.

    Sorry, WF, your post wasn't there when I started typing. I kept changing my wording and took too long. I don't know how to delete my whole post. Admin.?

    So sorry to hear this. The A&E biography of Kenny Rogers that Shun posted about is set to air on April 13th. I wonder if they will air it earlier? It is said to be built largely from an all-star salute concert in Nashville in 2017. Don Henley is listed as one of the guests.

    Oh no! I was so shocked when I saw this. I had not heard anything about him being ill either. I loved Kenny Rogers - his music had just enough of an edge that made it sound more like country rock to me. One of my favorite lines that I still use often is "you got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." And, of course, I love to the role he played in Eagles' history. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and fan. I am glad to hear that his family plans to have a public memorial for fans and friends once the coronavirus pandemic subsides.

    R.I.P. Kenny Rogers

    Wow - I am shocked to hear this ! I did not know he was sick. While not one of my favorite artist, he is a true icon and contributed a lot to Country/Rock music history. May he RIP and deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Another great goes to that great band in heaven.

    He has been sick. I remembered reading somewhere that he had to cut short his farewell tour on doctor's orders.


    Here's an article of Don talking about his mentor and he saw him 6 weeks ago.

    RIP Gambler. Thanks for discovering Don and his band and took a chance on them. We would had never gotten the Eagles and Don would had never met Glenn.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Vince Gill, backed by Brad Paisley & Marty Stuart, just sang Kenny's "Sweet Music Man" to open tonight's Grand Ole Opry. It was lovely. Due to COVID-19, for the second week in a row, the Opry is being played to an empty room and livestreamed.
