Don Felder Writes Homage To Glenn Frey, Keith Urban Pays Tribute

Keith Urban has used a video, shot in what appears to be his home, to salute the late Glenn Frey.

Urban stated that he was “deeply saddened” by Frey’s passing and performed the Frey/Jackson Browne song Take It Easy, which was also the first hit for the Eagles.

Former Eagles member Don Felder also saluted his late bandmate on his Facebook page.

I am in a state of shock and disbelief at Glenn’s passing. It was so unexpected and has left me with a very heavy heart filled with sorrow. He was so young and still full of amazing genius. He was an extremely talented songwriter, arranger, leader, singer, guitarist, you name it and Glenn could do it and create “MAGIC” on the spot. His visions and insights into songs and lyrics have become legendary and will echo throughout time on this earth for decades to come.

Glenn was funny, strong, generous and kind. It was a gift of a lifetime to have spent so many years working side by side with him. At times it felt like we were brothers and at other times, like brothers, we disagreed. Despite our difficult moments together we managed to create some magical songs, magical memories, great recordings and live shows together.

The planet has lost a great man and musician today. None will ever be able to take his place.

Rest in peace Glenn and may God bless you and your family.

Felder and Frey had numerous run-ins during their days in the Eagles. The band’s final show during their original run, on July 31, 1980, was marred by the two musicians threatening each other throughout the performance. Felder also filed suit against the Eagles after his firing in 2001.
