Glenn Frey Personal Quotes

I don’t know that there’s anything missing from rock’n’roll, though. I mean, “Stairway To Heaven” and “Hotel California” and “Yesterday” have kinda become standards now too. The one common thread is that the songs connect with people, they have a certain magic about them that people identify with.
Some people like The Eagles and some people don’t. But we never once did a dishonest day at work, we never faked it, and we know that when we step on stage we do a good job.
I don’t know that I’ve ever heard a single record that had more atmosphere than this Phil Collins track. It’s so cinematic and it’s another one of those records that starts out and it sort of hooks you, and you can’t stop listening and then once he’s got you drawn in then he starts adding things. I love the tension in that record. There’s something sort of unpredictable about it. You don’t quite know what’s going to happen next and of course when the drum fills come in it’s absolutely mind blowing. I always liked the song and then I remember seeing it on an episode of Miami Vice (1984). Don Johnson and his partner driving in one of their cool cars and it’s night time and it’s Miami and they’re headed some place where some bad stuff is gonna go down. And here’s this song playing while they’re cruising through the night streets of Miami. Totally cool. Love Phil Collins.
