Picks and Pans Review: Catching Up with ... Glenn Frey
>YOUR NEW ALBUM AFTER HOURS IS A SET OF STANDARDS. HOW COME?
It’s for my parents, who are still alive. My mom loves Sarah Vaughan, Rosemary Clooney, all that. She named me after Glenn Miller! So it was nice to give this back to them. They said, “Glennie, you did good.”
ANY NEW MUSIC YOU’VE BEEN INTO?
Oh yeah! Bruno Mars; he’s the real deal. And Adele—she just burns.
WHAT ARE THE EAGLES PLANNING FOR THEIR 40TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR?
We’re working on a documentary, which will open the door on the Eagles and show what we were doing in the ’70s. And we’ll do a handful of shows this year. We’re not nearly mercenary enough to put together some massive campaign to capitalize on our anniversary.
THE EAGLES USED TO CALL AFTERPARTIES THE THIRD ENCORE OF THE SHOW. STILL TRUE?
Nowadays it’s room service, television, book and nighttime meds. The most unattractive thing is middle-aged adolescence.
