Glenn Frey of the Eagles has passed away. What a gifted man, a talented artist. Hotel California remains one the best odes to life in the Golden State with it melodic guitar solo and biting lyrics. The Heat is On instantly brings me back decades, and James Dean rocks me to this day. It is the mournful, gorgeous Desperado, sung by Karen Carpenter, that showcases the array of his talent. It's an iconic take on an iconic tune. Rest in Peace.
