Glenn Frey statue erected in Eagles fans mecca

A life-size bronze statue of late Eagles star Glenn Frey has been unveiled in a Winslow, Arizona park.
The location is a nod to the rock band’s Take It Easy hit, which features the lyric “standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona/Such a fine sight to see”.
Two local rock station DJs, Mark Devine and Paul Marshall, helped fund the $22,000 (GBP17,000) Frey statue.
Following Frey’s death in January (16), Devine said, “We thought a statue would be a great way to pay tribute to his everlasting impact on Arizona’s history.”
The statue depicts Frey from the early 1970s, complete with long hair and a moustache.
Ironically, the late rocker always insisted his friend Jackson Browne came up with the Winslow, Arizona line after finding himself stranded in the town once.
The place has become a mecca to Eagles fans with shops selling merchandise and band-related keepsakes.
