Rock and Roll in Midlife: The English Beat Concert in Pasadena


Rock and roll and midlife fit together like a melody and lyrics. We grew up in the 60’s but we found our rock and roll stride in our high school and college years in the late 70’s and 80’s.

Good Bye Glenn Frey, I Will Miss you, We All Will

Glenn Frey

Good Bye Glenn Frey~ November 4, 1948 – January 18, 2016


With the passing of this rock legend, I wanted to share our experience at The Eagles concert which was almost exactly two years ago. The concert was held at the newly renovated and revitalized Forum. Growing up in Southern California, The Forum was the place to see every band that came to town.


For my very first concert, I went with my best friend Debbie and her brother to the “Fabulous Forum” to see the Eagles’ Hotel California tour. That was forty years ago this month, my how time flies. I was devastated to hear that Glenn Frey had left us. As a singer/songwriter, he was brilliant, direct, honest, sincere, always entertaining and he had a lovely, wicked sense of humor. Glenn Frey was one of my very favorite performers of all time and I have cherished his work since I was fourteen. The world is so sad and has lost another legend.

I wanted to republish my post from January 27, 2014 for you to enjoy. was only a few weeks old!

Do you have memories of Glenn Frey and The Eagles?
