    Glenn discusses how the part was based on him in this interview with Sports Radio Dan Patrick. He also talks about being cast by Cameron in Jerry Maguire.

    I watched this interview a lot before Glenn passed away but haven't watched it since. Just a great indication of the interests that Glenn had outside of music.

    The discussion about the movie is at the start of Part 2.

    Thanks 'Elvis'. That is such a great interview. I loved listening to a little bit of it again.

    I caught the end of this movie on tv tonight and caught something I've never noticed before...is there an eagles poster in William's room over his bed? It went by very quickly but I thought I saw Glenn, Joe, and Randy. Has anyone else noticed this? It's in the last scene when Russell comes to William's house.

    I have the DVD and watch it every other day or so. I paid attention to the end, and YEP!! There IS a poster of our Eagles on Williams' wall above his bed.


    P.S. groupie., are you a "groupie" or a "band-aid"? Do you eat all the steak?

    Thanks, MarthaJo, I thought so! I've been watching this movie for years and that's the first time I noticed that!

    I'd like to say I'm a band-aid, just here for the music, but I'm a groupie too!

    Yep to the Eagles poster.

    And, as some of us used to frequently describe ourselves around here, we are 'groupies without benefits'.

    Glad you like that, groupie. Actually, it's funny, but most every time I see your name on the board, it makes me think of it.

    This isn't technically about Glenn, but Rolling Stone recently hosted a virtual celebration of the 20th anniversary of the movie's release with Cameron Crowe, Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, and Kate Hudson. If you are a fan of this movie, you'll really enjoy it. It runs just short of an hour ...

    I enjoyed that, especially Cameron Crowe's version of where they are now - lawsuits about the use of the name and the current Stillwater touring with only one original member.
