There are certain letters that make you really think does this band or artist really belong in a top ten all time list. H is the letter upon us now. Below are my picks for the top (in no particular order). Add to it and help me finish the list!!

Tribute: Glenn Frey

When I was a kid my first memory of Glenn Frey wasn’t with the Eagles. It was his contributions to the Miami Vice soundtrack. The songs “You Belong To The City,” and “Smugglers Blues,” are forever in my head. I can’t forget Glenn’s small role he had as a smuggler pilot on Miami Vice too. It wasn’t till I got older, did I fully realize that the Eagles were more than a Big Lebowski joke. I really sat down and listened to the albums, and boy what a great thing to do. To be able to hear the songs that Glenn and Don Henley wrote and created shows how unstoppable they were songwriters together. To be honest I don’t know why the Eagles get such a bad rep. Sure, the radio has overplayed a bunch of their songs, but you can’t deny the quality of the song. To have something that keeps going for 40 plus years is astounding. If you are looking for a way to get into them, I strongly suggest watching the documentary The History Of The Eagles. It’s one of the best music docs I’ve ever seen. And if you weren’t a fan or didn’t appreciate them, this might be the thing to change your mind.

Thank you Glenn for all the great songs and music through the years!!! You will be missed.
