haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (music-guitars)

Another sad passing and it's only 19 days into the New Year

I just heard that Glenn Frey died at the age of 67 from complications arising from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia.

As a huge Eagles fan I am saddened for yet another massive loss to the world of music. I was lucky enough to see the Eagles live in NZ in 1995, and while I missed them when they came here last year, I have been a lifelong fan and always will be.

My thoughts are with his family and friends. I leave the last words to Glenn, from the song his family posted as a tribute:

“It’s Your World Now”
Written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin
From the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden album


A perfect day, the sun is sinkin’ low
As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow
The time we shared went by so fast
Just like a dream, we knew it couldn’t last
But I’d do it all again
If I could, somehow
But I must be leavin’ soon
It’s your world now
It’s your world now
My race is run
I’m moving on
Like the setting sun
No sad goodbyes
No tears allowed
You’ll be alright
It’s your world now
Even when we are apart
You’ll always be in my heart
When dark clouds appear in the sky
Remember true love never dies
But first a kiss, one glass of wine
Just one more dance while there’s still time
My one last wish: someday, you’ll see
How hard I tried and how much you meant to me
It’s your world now
Use well your time
Be part of something good
Leave something good behind
The curtain falls
I take my bow
That’s how it’s meant to be
It’s your world now
It’s your world now
It’s your world now
