The Eagles Interview | 60 Minutes | 'History of The Eagles'

Glenn Frey 1948-2016

I was fortunate enough to catch Glen live with the Eagles last year. It was treat I'll never forget. His music has meant a lot to me over the years and I'll never forget that. His music will always have a place on my playlists. Thank you Glenn!

 One good thing about Trump running for President is that it got me to pay more close attention. Of course things are heating up with the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire primary coming up in a few weeks.  It surprises me how many are actually taking Trump seriously. Here is a man who has never held a public office and who's claim to fame as a successful real estate mogul and reality television star.

I think his latest bid for the highest office of the land is just a bid further enhance his brand name and perhaps he's bored too. He's managed to insult Mexican's, Muslim's and his closest rival Ted Cruz. Their early truce seems to be over since their tirade in the debate over Cruz being born in Canada. Of course Ted Cruz is riding the wave of popularity due to an endorsement from Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson so Trump should watch his back.

Trump is not without his entertainment value. His knack of saying what he wants to without a care seems to attract a lot of people. They don't seem to realize that just because someone speaks their mind doesn't mean it's right or smartest thing to say.

David Bowie

It was tough to choose a video I thought personafide david Bowie. He was an ever evolving artist. You never knew what Bowie you were going to get. On the radio while I was growing up,late 70's early 80's,  he was a staple of rock radio with his hits "Space Oddity' and "Changes". Even then he was known for evolving his style in dress and music.By the mid 80's he was white suited with neatly cropped blonde hair. He had an air of respectability and a touch of rock/pop royalty that most people respected. I think he kept that until the end.

RIP David Bowie -1947-2016
