The surviving EAGLES -- DON HENLEY, BERNIE LEADON, TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT and JOE WALSH -- will join with JACKSON BROWNE for a special tribute to the band's late co-founder GLENN FREY at MONDAY night's 58th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS, which will include them playing one song. "Take It Easy," anybody?
Commented THE RECORDING ACADEMY President/CEO NEIL PORTNOW: "GLENN FREY's untimely passing was a huge loss for the entire creative community. For more than 45 years, THE EAGLES have played a significant role in shaping our musical landscape. We are honored to welcome the band, along with JACKSON BROWNE, to the GRAMMY stage in tribute to GLENN's tremendous legacy."
Eight-time GRAMMY winner HENLEY is currently nominated, with STAN LYNCH, for Best American Roots Song for "The Cost Of Living" from his "Cass County" album.
As a co-founder of THE EAGLES, FREY's six GRAMMY wins included Record Of The Year for 1977 for "Hotel California," and, most recently, Best Pop Instrumental Performance for 2008 for "I Dreamed There Was No War." Three EAGLES recordings, including 1976's "Hotel CALIFORNIA," have been inducted into the GRAMMY HALL OF FAME.
A tribute by LADY GAGA to DAVID BOWIE had been previously announced (NET NEWS 2/2).
