Damn it sucks getting old, seems like everyone is dying. Sucks to realize your heading there yourself! Have less years left than lived now. Disconcerting to say the least.

I'm turning 34 next month and that scary reality hit me when I turned 30.

My daughter's birthday today, she's 38.

 

There's a collection of YouTubes from The Eagles 1977 concert at the Cap Centre Hotel California tour.  I was there one of the days, I think they were there 3 days.  If you want to see the real Eagles, check out those vids.  Nothing like them before or pretty much since.  I have quite a few albums on MP3 files and will play them tomorrow on my way to work and home again.

 

So sad.  Glenn was only 3 years older than me.

Take another shot of courage

Wonder why the right words never come

You just get numb

 

Makes me sad. 2016 is so young & we've already lost too many people from my youth. Dammit.  :(

 

RIP Mr. Frey. Thanks for the happy times. Peace & prayers for you & your family.

My very first "Eagles memory"...my cousin had "Lyin' Eyes" on a 45 and we worked all day until both of us had all 4 harmony parts.  Ask me to sing a line, I'll ask you which one.  Theirs were the best.  I supported a dude who could play all day on a bar patio, everything, even every word to "American Pie"...but his fave, and what got the best applause was always "The Last Resort"...because we all knew, and we all want to make ourselves into something better. 

Give, not because you want to.  Because we all deserve a level playing field...be known for being "cool".
