Quote of the Day (Don Henley, on Glenn Frey, Eagles’ ‘Spark Plug’)

“Glenn was the one who started it all. He was the spark plug, the man with the plan. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn't quit. He was funny, bullheaded, mercurial, generous, deeply talented and driven. … I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some."— Eagles bandmate Don Henley, in a statement released in reaction to the death of Glenn Frey, quoted in “Don Henley Calls Glenn Frey His 'Brother' In Heartbreaking Statement,” The Huffington Post, Jan. 18, 2016

Rest in peace, Glenn Frey (Nov. 6, 1948 – Jan. 18, 2016)—and thanks for the music: "Take It Easy," "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Already Gone," "Tequila Sunrise," "Lyin' Eyes," "New Kid in Town," and what many are feeling now, "Heartache Tonight."
