My father took me and Helen to our first big concert - it was The Eagles.........I think their first tour. The Spectrum in Philly. Boz Scaggs (!!!) opened.
Helen and I weren't old enough to drive so I'm guessing we were junior high age. My Dad was way cool and loved the Eagles from Day One. I chatted with him tonight (he's 84) over the death of Glen Frey and we mourned together.
Take It Easy............and so many hits. The Eagles were the soundtrack of my life.
He passed at age 67 - not that old in this day and age. I've seen the footage "the History of The Eagles" and they were so damn good. Great songwriting, good singing, and a lot of charisma.
David Bowie this past week..........now Glen Frey.............the soundtrack of my youth...........is passing away......
