B Rock Note: Eagles May Continue to Fly Despite Loss of Glenn Frey
Bassist Timothy B. Schmit says that beyond the two upcoming Classic West/East shows this summer -- the Eagles may carry on.
During a chat with BestClassicBands, Schmit explained how the group came to the decision to perform without its leader, the late-Glenn Frey, and include his son, musician Deacon Frey:
"It’s all timing with decisions of that type. At first we said this is completely over, that we can’t do this without Glenn. But then we decided if we approach it with the understanding that Glenn is irreplaceable -- that nobody is going to take his place, and that we’ll use guests to supplement it all -- then that’s the way to do it. The other factor is that people still want to hear that music. So we’re going to try this out."
Don Henley also is not "ruling anything out..."
