Rest in Peace, Glenn Frey and Dale Griffin

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the passing of Glenn Frey, guitarist/vocalist and co-founding member of The Eagles. He had multiple health issues, including rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. From what I read, it was the intestinal issues that troubled him the most. He was 67.

I feel lucky that I saw The Eagles in 2002. It was an amazing show that I will never forget. ❤

What you may not know is that we also lost Dale Griffin, the drummer for Mott the Hoople. He, too, was 67 and died due to complications of Alzheimer’s. He actually passed on Sunday, one week after David Bowie…who wrote Mott the Hoople’s biggest hit, “All the Young Dudes.”

In non-music news, Bob Denver, the star of “Gilligan’s Island,” died recently as well.

WTF, 2016?
