Remembering Glenn Frey
What does remembering Glenn Frey have to do with Route 66?
Many may not realize it, but Route 66 goes through Winslow, Arizona. For those not old enough to know, Glenn Frey was in a band called the Eagles. They sung a song named Take It Easy that is about a young man standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. Yup, on Route 66.
In my generation, every young man dreamed of standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, waiting for that cute girl to drive by. I think any young man back then who claims he didn’t have that fantasy is lying. The song was epic and on everyone’s lips.
Glenn died this earlier this year. A few years earlier he recorded the Route 66 Theme Song.
When we get to Winslow, Arizona, we will be photographing that very corner. Perhaps we’ll find a girl in a flatbed Ford to photograph. (We’ll take volunteers if you want to meet us there.)
Sponsoring us can be specific as saying, “I want to sponsor your Winslow, Arizona, portion of the trip.” We can talk about what that means and what it will require. The nice thing about these sponsorships is we’re flexible.
