R.I.P. Glenn Frey
I probably watched this musical masterpiece two hundred times the year it came out on MTV. I absolutely loved videos that told stories or played out like action movies. Glenn Frey dominated my mid-80s television experience. His songs were everywhere: beer commercials, Miami Vice, you name it. What's always been funny to me about both Mr. Frey and his buddy Don Henley is that I grew up loving their music. Yet, put them together and I can't take it. I've never laughed harder in a movie than in The Big Lebowski when the Dude tells the cab driver to turn the radio station because he hates the Eagles. But, man, do I love me some "Boys of Summer". And, man, do I love me some "Heat is On" and "You Belong to the City".
I feel like my entire childhood is slowly being taken away from me. For all you millennials, watch the above video. This was Narcos before we had Netflix. Goodbye, Glenn
