Last night parents, brother, and I witnessed 46 collective years of music greatness by way of a musical journey put on by the Eagles. A celebration of their extensive catalogue, those in attendance were fortunate to witness this group in their new found form. Unfortunately, founding member Glenn Frey passed away in January of 2016, hence causing into the question the continuation of the iconic band. But they did, by filling the gap left by one with what seemed like three or four. Whether sharing a tone of voice and some star power (Vince Gill), guitar play (Will Henley), or actual DNA (Deacon Frey – Glenn’s son), I can’t help but imagine Glenn Frey being quite pleased with the collection of musicians that have helped continue to bring his music to life. You see, some might argue that the music has to stop. That the show can’t go on. That things will never be like the good ole days. I challenge this. Some times groups need to go through adaptations. Whether family, sports teams, businesses, friend groups, or couples. Things don’t always stay the same and by staying staunchly committed to the past formation, it gets in the way of something new, diverse, or magical from emerging and growing. Adaptation is a requirement because change is an inevitable. I always get a chuckle over people who say they don’t like change. Because the reality is that change is our only constant. Whether changing our clothes, our Facebook picture, our calendar, our attitudes, our careers, our the groups that we form. Change is all around us. So, thank you Eagles for being open to change and adapting because the Graef squad and about 20,000 others benefited from it.
