Glenn Frey Tribute by Eagles members during Grammy Awards 2016 still among most watched
Glenn Frey Grammy tribute has been widely hailed as being the best tribute paid to anyone in a long time. While everyone seems to be very happy about the tribute that was led by Eaglesâ€™ Jackson Brown with band members, there is one person who has said that he is unhappy about the tribute.
Glenn Frey tribute during the Grammy 2016 has been called as the best tribute by almost all the people within the industry and outside. Meanwhile former Eagles guitarist Don Felder was left out of last night’s Grammys tribute to the late Glenn Frey, and he is not gonna “take it easy.” Felder, who was fired from The Eagles in 2001, tweeted his disappointment on Tuesday morning about not being included.
While his disappointment is justified, the organizers are also justified in not including him in the tribute group. “We couldn’t think of a more appropriate way to honor him than by bringing together his bandmates and longtime friend and collaborator, Jackson Browne, to play an Eagles classic that forever changed popular music,” Ken Ehrlick, executive producer of the Grammys, said. “It’ll be an emotional moment for many of us — one of reflection, respect, and celebration.”
In the meantime Glenn Frey fans simply loved the performance. His fans were mesmerized by the impressive and poignant rendition of “Take It Easy,” filled with brisk, buoyant guitars and stellar, soaring harmonies. While “Take It Easy” began as a Browne original, it became the Eagles’ debut single â€” and seminal folk-rock hit â€” in 1972 after Frey fleshed out the second verse with the singular line, “It’s a girl my lord in a flatbed Ford, slowing down to take a look at me.” For his fans he is a legend that can never fade away from their memories. Though he is known more for his singing and guitar, he was also a respected songwriter, actor and producers. Originally hailing from Detroit, Glenn Frey moved to California as a young aspiring rock musician, and fell in with a group of songwriters, including Jackson Browne and Don Henley, the latter of whom became his main partner in the Eagles.
