Glenn Frey Was Here OR Death Can Take a Holiday

Grim Reaper -

I realize death doesn't take a holiday, but late last year you took Scott Weiland and Lemmy Kilmister.

We're barely three weeks into the new year and you've taken so many already:

  • Nick Caldwell, singer (The Whispers)
  • Angus Scrimm, Actor 
  • David Bowie
  • Alan Rickman
  • Dan Haggerty
  • Dallas Taylor, Drummer (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young)
  • Mike Sharpe, Pro wrestler
  • Dale Griffin, Drummer (Mott the Hoople)
  • Mic Gillette, Brass player (Tower of Power)
  • Blowfly, American musician and producer

Then today you feel the need to take Glenn Frey. Fuckin' really? Bowie and Rickman weren't enough this year, huh?  Blue Oyster Cult said, "Don't fear the reaper", but I don't fear you.  I just wanna kick YOUR ass...and cancer's too while I'm at it.

Gutted...bugged...pissed...sad....mad & stunned.

Do everyone a favor.  Go away for the rest of the year and take that vacation.  Families, friends, and fans are grieving every day or every other day because of you.

Go now! GO NOW!!

My condolences to Glenn's family and friends.  And too all the fans as well.  He was a class act and no other like him. One less legend among us.

Take it easy one last time standing on that corner in Winslow, Arizona.  Your music lives on forever.

Rest In Peace.

“It’s Your World Now”

Written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin
[From 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
