Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 11/6/14 Happy Birthday, Glenn Frey
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Tonight, we celebrate a Rock 'n' Roll birthday as guitarist/songwriter/singer Glenn Frey turns 66. Frey has been busy on tour with The Eagles as of late. But, the native Detroiter has a few other credits to his illustrious career. Frey has cited Bob Seger as a major early influence, crediting Seger with giving Frey the courage to write his own songs. In the early days, Frey played on a few songs with The Bob Seger System, including the original LP version of "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man". Frey can be heard singing backing vocals on that track, and also has lent guitar work to Seger's work with The Silver Bullet Band. Glenn played lead guitar on "Til It Shines" from the Stranger In Town LP. Frey has also ventured into a solo career, as well as being credited with playing and writing for other great acts. (The Highwaymen, Kenny Rogers, Dave Mason, Linda Ronstadt among them)
Tonight, we hear three from The Eagles featuring Glenn Frey on lead vocals. Tune in for "James Dean", "Ol' 55", and "Outlaw Man". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
