OBIT: Glenn Frey, “Already Gone”

Wow, things are getting tight for the rockers of our youth, for now Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey has passed away today at the age of 67, apparently from multiple illnesses.

Again, I was slow to come to the Eagles although I remember an ex-girlfriend, Cindy Graham, playing Already Gone for me the first time in 1976 saying how much it was my kind of song.

Cindy was right and that started my interest in the band that did indeed grow to some pretty good respect.

Frey was core to the band along with Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Randy Meissner, and later Timothy B. Schmidt (a great bass player) along with the great Joe Walsh. Say what you will: these guys could play.

I am sure there will be more words to come, so I will keep this short and just give you the song with thoughts of Glenn as he changes planes.
