Machine Head's Robb Flynn Pays Tribute To Eagles Glenn Frey
In a post on his General Journals online diary, Flynn says watching a documentary on Showtime about three years ago reminded him that the Eagles had managed to hold his musical affection for several decades.
He says: "I grew up in California and their music was almost like second nature to me. It was a constant during my 'growing years'. I still listen to them regularly on tour - sometimes after a show to relax, sometimes to kick the party up a notch. Don Henley's voice is other-worldly, but Glenn Frey sang some of my favourite songs by them as well - Take It Easy, Heartache Tonight, New Kid In Town.
Dad-of-two Flynn adds: "It's the song Heartache Tonight that I have fondest memories of. It reminds me of drinking wine with Genevra sometime in the mid-90s. We were living in our old apartment in Berkeley and her talking me into dancing in our cramped-ass living-room." Read more here.
