Tribute to Glenn Frey: "How Long"

If the Eagles had simply reunited for their 1994 tour, then quit, they still would have ranked among the top acts in music history.  But there is more to this incredible story.  The tour went so well that they went out again, and again, massive crowds greeted them at every stop.

In 2007, 27 years after their last studio album, the four remaining Eagles:  Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt, recorded a double album.  It was a sensation.  There has never been anything like it, an album recorded by an act after 27 years that was so successful.  Long Road Out of Eden went to the Top 10 on the Album charts in virtually every country in the world.  It has now sold over seven million copies in the U.S. alone.  

Frey took this song by friend J.D. Souther and turned it into yet another Eagles hit...
