Eagles Jackson Browne’s Glenn Frey Grammy tribute praised by his fans across the world
Musical tribute paid to Glenn Frey during the Grammy Awards 2016 show was among the best I have come across in a long, long time as far as tributes are concerned. Several Eagles members came together and came up with heart-rending musical tribute during glittering Grammy Awards show.
One of the best singers-guitarists of our times, Glenn Frey died on Jan. 18 in New York of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia. Eaglesâ€™ members Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit joined Jackson Browne for a heartfelt tribute to Glenn Frey at the Grammys Monday.
Glenn Frey was a legend and enriched the music immensely not just in the US but across the world. He was not just a guitarist but was singer, songwriter, actor, director and much more. Best known as a founding member of rock band the Eagles, during the 1970s, Frey played guitar with the band, as well as piano and keyboards. Alongside Don Henley, Frey was one of the primary singers of the Eagles; he sang lead vocals on songs such as “Take It Easy”, “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, “Tequila Sunrise”, “Already Gone”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “New Kid in Town” and “Heartache Tonight”.
The Grammy tribute will be remembered for a long time by his fans. To honor him, Eagles co-founders Don Henley and Bernie Leadon and guitarist Joe Walsh, bassist Tim Schmit and Jackson Browne took the Grammys stage for a performance of “Take It Easy.” It must be kept in mind that “Take it Easy” was the Eagles’ first single, released in May 1972. The song written almost entirely by Browne with some lyrics added by Frey when the pair roomed together in an East L.A. apartment block in the ’70s. The tune became an enduring hit for the Eagles after it appeared on the groupâ€™s self-titled debut album. Browne later recorded it for his 1973 album, For Everyman.
