  1. I was at the July 2nd show. I’d known Glenn from his days playing with JD in Longbranch Pennywhistle. He sent me a pair of passes so my girlfriend (now wife of 50 years) and I could catch the show. Terrific show. I was more impressed with the songwriting than Robert Hilburn.

    1. Thanks, Brian. What a cool story! Congratulations to you and your wife on 50 years. Regarding Hilburn. He was far more impressed with the songwriting on the Eagles’ subsequent albums.
