It has been a crazy few weeks with rock stars dying....David Bowie, Glen Frey from the Eagles, and Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane. And some of these guys are not much older than I am.
I was an Eagles fan from early on. As soon as I heard Take it Easy and Peaceful Easy Feeling I was hooked on them. I remember hearing them on a radio that was in the kitchen of the restaurant that I worked in after my first year in college. I went to see them when they were the backup band for Todd Rundgren of all people. I did not like him, but I did really enjoy the Eagles. Of course this was back when concert tickets were cheap compared to today's standards.
The night my first boyfriend and I broke up back in the late 70's we had gone to a concert with the Eagles, Jackson Browne, and Linda Ronstadt in Arizona. I think the song Best of my Love was playing when I realized it was really over with this guy. This boyfriend dragged me out to Arizona to go to school and then broke up with me not much after we got there! Oh well his loss. Interestingly enough he contacted me via a card and letter about 5 years ago. He basically apologized for treating me so badly. I guess he wanted to see me. I was actually a bit freaked out since he had to go online and track me down. I showed my husband the note, but never responded to it.
I saw the Eagles again with my husband a few years ago. So I was sad to see that Glen Frey died. I plan on watching the documentary on the Eagles that is on tomorrow night on CNN.
I have already decided (at least I think so) how I am going to quilt this. I guess that is a good thing since I could be basting this one before long.
Do you like the Eagles?
