New, Unimproved! Why Grammys Underwhelmed as Usual This Year

16 February 2016 10:45 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

With only a handful of actual awards handed out on television, The Grammys did their utmost best to convince us there’s nothing wrong with the music business. Again, it’s kind of like the orchestra on the Titanic–if the Titanic took 20 years to sink. As much as I loved The Eagles and the late Glenn Frey, they looked sorely out of place on last night’s telecast. Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Timothy Schmit, Joe Walsh and Jackson Brown looked like your grandfather’s band jamming in the middle of your bar mitzvah. ...Read More »

Stephen Colbert Remembers Glenn Frey With an Adorable Story About His Eighth-Grade Dance

20 January 2016 6:33 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Glenn Frey, who died Monday at the age of 67, wasn't just the the true leader of the Eagles. As Stephen Colbert recalled on his show Tuesday night, he was also the man who made possible little Stephen's (not that one) first-ever slow dance, thanks to a well-timed "Desperado" at a middle-school dance. Though Frey co-wrote the song, he wasn't the Eagle who sang "Desperado" — that was Don Henley — but that doesn't make this story any less sweet. Welcome to the hotel aww-lifornia. »

Why Glenn Frey Was the True Leader of the Eagles

19 January 2016 3:18 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A few hours after word broke of Glenn Frey's death Monday night, Bob Seger paid tribute to his old friend by claiming, "Make no mistake about it: He was the leader of the Eagles." The notion that the Eagles had a lone leader comes as a bit of a shock because Frey always appeared joined at the hip with Don Henley, the pair crafting their country-rock aesthetic, writing songs together, and steering the band through contentious lineup changes. Through it all, the Eagles seemed like a joint affair, not the work of a lone gun. For better and for worse, Henley exudes such a heavy gravitational pull in the Eagles that it's possible to think of Seger's statement as little more than the kind words of a comrade. But old Bob’s onto something. Henley might've provided the Eagles with ballast but Frey gave the Eagles lightness, adding a »

32 Reasons Why the Eagles Are the Best Band in the Universe

18 January 2016 2:51 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post originally ran in May 2007. We are rerunning it with the news of Glenn Frey's death. 1. No band is more deeply misunderstood, particularly by people who believe art should be pious. 2. It’s true that the hedonistic seventies California they’ve come to symbolize was where the let’s-levitate-the-Pentagon spirit of the sixties went to die. But they didn’t kill it — they just performed the autopsy, over the course of six albums that play like one long opera about American counterculture in freefall. Like all good writers, they wrote what they knew. 3. Like all good California singer-songwriters, they looked great, too — no other band has pulled off the awake-for-three-days-on-peyote-buttons, stumbling-off-a-Lear-jet-dressed-like-a-cowboy thing with as much style. 4. “Take It Easy” — classic song, classic bumper sticker. 5. The poster included with 1974’s On the Border, in which Don Henley is wearing the manliest peasant blouse in rock history. »
