Nah, I've always paid attention. It's when the age of the recently deceased is so close to my own that I get a little nervous.

The saddest "stranger" deaths to me are those of young people. Military members, youth dying of drugs or car accidents - all seem to be too young to die. Anyone younger than me, in fact. The saddest of all that I read in the local paper last year was of a 40-something wife. Her husband had died from chronic condition or disease four months earlier. The obituary gave her cause of death as "a broken heart".

Too bad that during their heyday, FM radio stations across America played The Eagles songs to death. They were the darlings of FM station managers and DJ's morning, noon and night. I heard their songs so many times per hour that I grew to hate that band. All because FM radio totally over saturated the airwaves with The Eagles during their peak years.

Your sympathy is stunning, Caslon He was a great songwriter, no matter how many times the songs were played.

I read that the Eagles were scheduled to be at The Kennedy Center Honors in November. Glenn had to have to have major surgery for colitis with a long recovery time; it was postponed so they could all be together and was supposed to happen this year

I guess living in the fridge as you do it would be a little difficult to reach outside of it to change the station, now wouldn't it?

The Eagles weren't the only big bands playing on FM. I'm a 70's Lil Brat, that had many older siblings that loved a lot of different bands. Rock and Kountry, to the oldies. Glenn Miller Band. Lets not forget R&B.

Chicago, Steely Dan,Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band. The list goes on.

At least the bands back then had fun.Talent.
Not the garbage the Rappers of today have to offer up to our kids. It's nothing but pure hateful garbage.

Let's see, we are here to memorialize Glenn Fry, who was more than just the "Eagles" a talented artist and songwriter. If you don't like his music, then why bother to comment? Leave this space for us who DO like him and his catalog of music.

Enough of who likes what music.

As before, RIP Glenn, you will be missed...

Yes, sadly ironic isn't it? We watched it and they did have Miranda Lambert sing "Desperado" which, again, ironically, was a Glenn Frey lead vocal.

That song was always one of my favourites and, I just recently learned that although it was the title track on one of their albums, it was never released as a single. It is one of the more "covered" Eagles songs and made it to the top 500 Billboard songs of all time. Not bad for a song that was never released! LOL

Glenn Frey, you will be missed - RIP.

Sorry, but Desperado was a Don Henley lead vocal.
