I didn't play a bunch of Eagles songs on my radio show last Sunday, to remember Glenn. Instead, I became curious about the beginning of his journey & the events leading up to the formation of (The) Eagles.
From his first gig with J.D. Souther, in 1969, calling themselves Longbranch Pennywhistle. To the amazing role Linda Ronstadt played, in the incubation of the Eagles(!!) I learned a lot and would like to share the story and the music with you.
"For people who don't understand why others mourn the death of artists, you need to understand that these people have been a shoulder to cry on. Our rock.
They've been family, friends, leaders, teachers and role models.
Many have taught us what we need to know and what to do when times get rough.
They've helped us move on. They've pushed us out of bed. They've helped us live, when nobody else had the time to.
Artists have inspired us in endless ways and have been with us through stages in our lives.
We've made memories with them. So when they die, a part of us dies."
