Stevie addresses Orlando, shares demo

Stevie Nicks has shared a special message and the demo of “Touched by an Angel,” in honor of those affected by the Orlando massacre.

Sometimes~ In a difficult situation, a song from the past will call out to me. Concerning what happened in Orlando~ I hope these words might be comforting to those involved. I dedicate “Touched by an Angel” to all those lost~ and all those left behind. I have included the original demo because it is my favorite version. This was my mother’s favorite song~

All my love,
Stevie Nicks

I also send these words to Christina Grimmie~ and to her family, so sad…so very, very sad~ I am so sorry…

Glenn Frey, guitarist and founding member of the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band The Eagles, died Monday, January 18, in New York, succumbing to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. The Eagles family published the following statement on its official website:

It Is With The Heaviest of Hearts That We Announce…

…the passing of our comrade, Eagles founder, Glenn Frey, in New York City on Monday, January 18th, 2016. Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia.

The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery. Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community & millions of fans worldwide.

Eagles drummer Don Henley issued the following tribute to Frey:

“He was like a brother to me; we were family, and like most families, there was some dysfunction. But, the bond we forged 45 years ago was never broken, even during the 14 years that the Eagles were dissolved. We were two young men who made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles with the same dream: to make our mark in the music industry — and with perseverance, a deep love of music, our alliance with other great musicians and our manager, Irving Azoff, we built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed. But, Glenn was the one who started it all. He was the spark plug, the man with the plan. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn’t quit. He was funny, bullheaded, mercurial, generous, deeply talented and driven. He loved is wife and kids more than anything. We are all in a state of shock, disbelief and profound sorrow. We brought our two-year ‘History of the Eagles Tour’ to a triumphant close at the end of July and now he is gone. I’m not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some.”

Stevie and Frey last appeared together in 2014 at the 29th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony, where they paid tribute to inductee Linda Ronstadt by performing her single “It’s So Easy” with Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Carrie Underwood. Stevie met Frey in the mid-’70s when Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles were rising to global prominence.
