JD Souther Issues Statement About Glenn Frey

JD Souther, Glenn Frey’s other songwriting partner for over 40 years, has issued a statement about the passing of Frey.

Souther said, “Glenn Frey was my first songwriting partner and best friend when we set out to realize our dreams of making great music in Los Angeles. Our first year together will always seem like yesterday to me. His amazing capacity for the big joke and that brilliant groove that lived inside him are with me, even now, in this loss and sorrow. I will miss him every day but then…he is always here, isn’t he? I can’t say any more than that for now. The music and the love are indestructible.

Rest Quietly Dear Little Brother

You are greatly loved and missed

John David Souther

Souther and Frey collaborated on Eagles hits ‘Best Of My Love’, ‘Heartache Tonight’ and ‘New Kid In Town’ as well as ‘Victim of Love’ from ‘Hotel California’. ‘How Long’ from ‘Long Road Out Of Eden’ is also a JD Souther song.

Souther also co-wrote ‘Her Town Too’, a hit with James Taylor. He appears regularly as the character Watty White in the TV show ‘Nashville’.
