The Passing of a Legend

We’ve lost a few icons lately. Lemmy from Motorhead. David Bowie.

I got my start in and around Southern California in the mid 1960’s. After the moodiness of The Doors and the majesty of Led Zeppelin, the region became a hotbed of young, enthusiastic singers and songwriters. They developed a signature sound that still resonates today. Two people who epitomized that sound were Linda Ronstadt and Glenn Frey of The Eagles. We lost Frey last week, and he will be missed. I was able to catch the two of them together in 1977.
