THE EAGLES GET GRAMMY MOMENT FOR GLENN FREY FEATURING REMAINING MEMBERS
This Monday night’s Grammy Awards, February 15, has added a very special performance by the remaining members of The Eagles after the death earlier this year of co-founding member Glenn Frey. Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Timothy B. Schmit, and Joe Walsh will be playing a tribute to Glenn with Jackson Browne, a collaborator for the band, filling in for the late Frey.
The Eagles have had many member changes with some surviving members not taking part in the tribute including Randy Meisner and Don Felder, who came up with the idea for perhaps The Eagles biggest hit, “Hotel California.”
Schmit was the last member to join the band in 1977, replacing Meisner, and in a previous interview he talked with Artisan News about joining the band.
Timothy also sang “Love Will Keep Us Alive,” one of the biggest hits of their 2007 comeback album Long Road Out Of Eden, and he also sang the Adult Contemporary classic “I Can’t Tell You Why” from 1979’s The Long Run.
Glenn Frey died in January 2016 from complications from Colitis surgery and pneumonia.
