That's right.

Ihis t'ssue is devoted to the twa "happy-go lucky'' members of the Eagles, Joe
and Glenn Frey, because the Eagles wouldn't be the Eagles without them! We hope you
enjoy our tribute to two Ordinary Average Guys who's talent is neither ordinary nor average.

Back in 1993, we had a difficult decision
to make. We could follow Don Henley's
tour out west and catch shows in Houston, Phoenix and Los Angeles, or we
coul( stick around Houston and Dallas
and catch Joe and Glenn's "Party of
Tvrm" tour. Well, those of you who know
us can guess what we did. We followed Henley.

We've always kind of regretted not seeing Joe and Glenn. Well, let's put that
another way. We regretted that the timing of the shows forced us to make a

choice. We never stop and question
when it comes to Don. After watching
the HFO shows and seeing a tape of the
Walsh/Frey show, we could see that we
had missed out on something. Much of
the Walsh and Frey stuff in HFO had
been previewed in their duo tour.
Many of you who read the WT Probably
get fed up with all of the Henley cover-

age. Like we've said a hundred times,
it's not like we don't enjoy the others, we
are just limited in material on them.

That's why we've come up with this
special issue. We really do like Glenn
and Joe.

ln fact, one of the more

memorable
moments of the most recent leg of HFO
shows happened in Clemson, South
Carolina. Picture this: lt's hotter than

hell (in it's unfrozen state), there are 7
women in a row..already entranced by
Henley's decision to wear BLUE jeans
when the opening chords of "The Heat
is On" reverberate through the stadium.
Those of you who were there heard the
screams. Melissa hyperventilated and
had to be assisted by a shirtless
drunken man (Go Mell)" We'd like to
think Glenn heard us too.

Hope this issue brings back special
memories like ours.

Well let me tell you, Christmas came early for this
girl...
Because of the information posted by L & M about
the Lexus Challenge Golf Tournament, I went and had

an incredible day! lf it wasn't for the mailing list

it

probably never would have happened.

The Tournament was delayed about an

hour

because of frost on the course. People were just milling
around, some golfers were practice putting or hitting
off the practice tee. Glenn was about the last one out
of the clubhouse with his visor on backward and a big
cup of coffee in his hand. As he walked by you could

hear him complain about "running a bit late this
morning". He hit a few spent some time visiting with
the other golfers.
I had taken my'Hotel California'CD with me on the
off chance that I might get an autograph. Well, let me

tell you---he not only signed the inside picture of
himself--He saw that I was trying to take a picture of
him so he told me to give
my camera to some stranger in the crowd and take a
picture with him! GUYS, this was one of those 'arms
around the waist' poses. Never in my wildest dreams
did I think I would ever have my arm around Glenn
Freyll! I especially never expected his to be around
me! (Can you tell, I'm just a little excited about this) At
this point he was off to the bathroom(too much coffee
guess) and I was off to find my husband, because--of
course--he had missed the

sign a golf balll We decided to go
with Glenn's group for a hole or so. lt turned inlo 1 112
hours! There were only 5 of us in the 'gallery'. We
walked down the fainrvay with him. He was cracking
jokes, making comments and generally having a great
time. He took time while the other guys hit to talk, etc.
I got a great picture of him and my husband! At one
point he mentioned that he had better golf well because
he was "the 3rd best guitar player in a 3 guitar band and
he couldn't act". He smacked a great drive then turned
to us and said "that's what you call a Linda Ronstadt--A
blew-by-u"(OH BROTHER!!) lt was just a great
experience and he was 'Super'. We said good-bye to

Glenn because I decided after about 4 holes I had
better give Kevin Costner equal time(but THAT'S
another story).

By the way, when he was asked if the tour would
continue he replied "No, we're done for now" --whatever
that means?

I

whole thing!

About now they

were

looking for Glenn to tee off.

Thursday was the Pro-Am.
The pairings were a "Celeb"
or Pro with a group of 4
amateurs. This weekend on
TV is just the "Celeb" and
Pro. lf Glenn has the same Pro, he'll be playing with
Gary Player. Glenn was really nice to his fans. He
signed as may autographs as he could. I even saw him
We'd like to thank everyone who
sent money in for A Grassroots Aspen
Experience fundraiser. We managed
to raise $275 for one of Glenn's
favorite causes.
Those who participated calculated
their donations by playing a rousing

game of golf with Glenn.
It looks like our next fundraiser,

which we'll kick off in a few months
will be for "Last Chance Forever" an
organization that helps birds of prey.
Thanks Again!

almost identical to the recent stadium tour they did,
although they left out a couple of solo numbers
(Smugglers Blues, All She Wants to do is Dance) and
added Peaceful, Easy Feeling (this was not played in
L.A.) The biggest difference was that it was performed
in front of 300 - 400 people and not 50,000. It was

Well, it's public-spiritedness time
again, and in the interest of the
common good and doing unto
others, I have been working hard
at some scientific research in
your behalf.

Anyway, l've been taking a poll
of which Glenn is the preferable
Glenn, and what follows are the
results. Leave your calculators
at the door, we'll post the winner
on a giant tote board come column's end. Here we go.

The subject in question today is
the Holiday Spa Health Club ad
that features ex-Eagle Glenn
Frey in two manifestations. Hard
Rock and Rock Hard.
Hard Rock is the old Glenn Frey:
rumpled work shirt, droopy mustache, flowing mane. Rock Hard
is the new Glenn Frey: sleeveless muscle shirt, tights, barbell,
square head like Frankenstein.
(Whoops. Strike that from the
record. A little personal bias
leaked out,)

,{

Old Editor: "Oh, the new one,
but it has nothing to do with his
shape. lt's the mustache. lf he'd
lose the mustache, I'd prefer the
'70s Glenn."

Woman I work with: "OId Glenn.
He's sexier that way. That's the
way I remember him from the
Eagles. He looks like an &! in
the new picture."

Guy I work with: "l have to go
with the new one. I don't like
those droopy Fu Manchus. But
it's only the mustache that looks
stupid."

I

work with:
"Hard Rock. He looks more sensual, more of a fantasy look.
He's got a kissing face. l'd rather
sleep with him in the desert
tonight."

Another woman

You don't have to thank me; it's
my job.

Another guy I work with: "My gut
reaction? The old Glenn. He
looks more casual and relaxed.
The new one looks too pretentiously sexy, too certain of himself, too conscious."

Note of caution: That last remark
was from the lyrics of an Eagles
song. I just want to be sure you
know that and that the people I
work with are of sterling character. Shallwe go on?

Yet another woman I work with:
"The old one. The new one looks
too GQish. The old one looks like
he'd be fun. The new one is too
into himself""

Another guy I work with: "Old. He
was doing better music then."

Yet another guy

I

work with:
"Neither. Hippie burnout vs. Bruce
Willis wannabe."
New editor: "The new one. I don't
like all that hair. lt looks dirty. But
of course, you're talking to a person who goes to the gym six
times a week."

Man l've known for a long time: "l
haven't seen the ad, but I can tell
you without looking. I hate them
both. The 'Miami Vice' version
was bad enough."
Woman I used to work with: "l find
them both really repellent and
hostile. I'd cross the street to
avoid him. The long-hair one
looks like he's a drug addict with

film and TV credits outweigh Glenn's. For sheer quantity of work, Joe
has edged ahead of Glenn by one. Unless you choose to count the number of episodes...then Glenn's the winner! lt's up to you to decide who is
the better actor, though.

The 1997 Eagles FAN Convention in
Cleveland, Ohio is still in the making. ln
case you haven't heard, is still
planned for July 25th to the 27th, which

it

is a Friday to a Sunday event. The

planning committee and I have come up
with several interesting and entertaining
events throughout the 3 day period.

There will be a few planned group
events and some time when you can
basically have a free period for
shopping, personal sight-seeing, etc...
This is open to all interested parties.

lRC, mailing list, WT subscribers,
friends of those going, anyone. I would
like for you to contact me if you wish to
attend. Via E-mail, you may reach me

at

TeenJailer@aol.com. My postal

address is:
307 Cuttis Avenue
Jackson, Ml 79203

Sadly, I will be moving midway during
March, so if you decide to write
thereafter in March, you can write to:
108 Shadowood Lane
Battle Creek, Ml 49014

When writing, please address it "Eagles
Fan Convention lnfo" so I know what it
is regarding.

This is going to be a GREAT time, I
would hate for anyone to miss the
opportunity to meet their online friends
or just all-around Eagles fans!

Thanks for your time,
Rick Rogers:
Organizer/Chairsperson of 1 997
Eagles FAN Convention.

AP
-The
that Don had been one of the celebrity

guests at the first ever snow polo match

held in the US in Aspen shortly after
Christmas. While we all imagined Don
sipping Champagne and watching the
game, Henley was probably furiously
phoning the AP and demanding a retrac-

tion. So, in the spirit of accuracy.....Mr.
Henley was NOT at the snow Polo
match in Aspen....don't think he
was......he wasn't.
