Glenn Frey remembered
Your article on the life and times of Glenn Frey moved me [“An Appreciation: Took It to the Limit,” Jan. 18]. Thank you for creating such an informative and elegant tribute.
Frey’s band was one of the biggest of the 1970s, and it pretty much single-handedly pioneered the L.A. country-rock sound with its fingers on the zeitgeist of that era. All good, but what always strikes me when I listen to the band is its craft. The Eagles rocked, but with uncompromising professionalism, well-structured songs, vocals with incredible harmonies and spot-on and creative playing.
Thank you for the article. I think “Lyin’ Eyes” is his very best song because when you listen to the phrases in the song, the words become mental pictures in your head and you can almost become part of the picture as an observer.
