First, I want to tell Glenn Frey (RIP).. I THANK him with all of my Heart and Soul for finding one of the Hottest Bands in the 70s and a great come back in the 90s. I have every one of your albums from the first one to the last CD that was made. All of you have had the BEST harmony ever together!

Even when Joel Walsh was with them, he too went into a treatment for Alcohol & Coke. He came back to play and did NOT think he could do it without the substances. They said he sounded better then ever, but it took him a good year to find his own balance. Glenn & Don tired to have a come back way later in the 70s-80s but just could not get it right. They tried again in the later 90s and what a come back. They did tours for a few years and Everybody just Loves them..

"No More Walks in the Woods". That whole CD is a bit different then there other ones, but the Harmony is just unreal. Some of the Eagle members got involved in keeping them from destroying the Woods in this one town. He said he read this book and got real involved in saving this area. This book gave him so much comfort during some hard times and so fourth.

I have always been a Artist and make crafts, sew, draw and paint. When i was in my teens I had did a pencil drawing of the four of them. I could not get Randy M right (base player). I found out that he had left them just a few months later. Wow go figure. I sent them this drawing and thought nothing of it, because I know they get lots of fan mail. Well, after Hotel California I got curious about what some of these songs meant. I wrote a letter and got a letter back from Don Henley..They were in this town doing a concert and he wrote me back on the letter head paper he got from the room. I know it was from him because I had it checked out. It was NOT from anybody but him. The Eagles had wrote many Love songs, but they also are known for there songs about Life alone and People, Places and Things. I had asked him what these 3 songs where about and this is what he wrote back to me stamped April 28 1977. I was living on N Shore in Lake Tahoe for yrs..lol

Dear Hill Person--

"The Last Resort" is about the destruction of America--all of it.

"Wasted Time" is not about Stevie Nicks, & "Pretty Maids All In a Roll" is about anybody who ever grew up & didn't really want to--(which is just about everybody.

O.K.?

Don Henley

It sure looks different in writing and took up most of the page..Ha!

I have the envelope and letter together and I am going to put it in a better frame. I will miss Glenn Frey and his AWESOME Voice and Songs he wrote for many others too. The new base player has the highest sound that comes from his voice. He sings many songs on that New CD I got many yrs back. EAGLES "Long Road Out Of Eden". I watch a program about them today and it was just SO good. This is why I decided to say my good byes to Glenn Frey..May you Rest in Peace and NOW you are pain free. THANKS for all the HOT music and words over these years, that I have been able to listen to on this Earth. Been with you guys all the way, as I too, grew up with all of you.

Bless the Eagles that Fly High in the Sky.

Ya! Meg..If you have TV hooked up, look for the "History of the Eagles" that is on again. I am NOW recording this one. I caught the end of the last one. WOW! I can sing every single song, word from word. I guess I have not lost my mind all the way. This is just putting me in a REAL GOOD MOOD!!

We switched from Dish to Direct TV  because of the Football, so this is on channel 546..Jackson Brown is talking right now with the music behind him..It is GOOD info. YOU can come up and watch it with me later, since I have it recorded for good now..lol

Meg..I will be back, so keep an eye on this post.
I will share some great info about them later. About the first album and cover to the last one. Most of it started right where you live down in Southern Ca and where I grew up too..lol
They are around my age or just a bit older, so it really brought back some good old memories.

I was at the Long Road Out of Eden concert.  It was incredible.  Glenn Frey talked about the origin of Lyin Eyes.  I knew that song was about me!! (back in the day)  I grew up with The Eagles and they will always have a place in my heart.

RIP Glenn, you will be missed~

Hey V.

  Glenn Frye left us wanting more.  That's the way he should pass on.

Blessings,
