In commemoration of the one year anniversary of the death of old fried Glenn Frey on January 18th, Bob Seger has uploaded a tribute, tilted, "Glenn's Song" to his website (BobSeger.com). He spoke about the tune to Rolling Stone, explaining, "It's obviously not meant to be a hit. There's no chorus per se or title section or anything. The idea was just to honor his memory and talk, very specifically, about my impression of him in 1966 when we first met."
Seger, who co-wrote the Eagles' last Number One hit -- "Heartache Tonight" -- described Frey to us as being like his "little brother," made his bones with Frey in the mid-'60s Detroit music scene, and shed light on the recording of "Glenn's Song": "I think it was take one or two. It was the first song we did that day. I said to the drummer, 'Hit it hard even though it's a ballad and that's a little incongruous.' I wanted a ballad with a heavy beat because that's the way I remember Glenn."
