Glenn Frey Honored with Statue in Winslow, Arizona

A new statue honors a rock star who helped make a small western city famous.

FOX’s Jane Metzler reports fans tend to drive though the downtown blasting a certain song on their speakers:

It’s a life-sized bronze statue of Glenn Frey showing him: 

(Eagles) “Standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see.”

The statue of the late Eagles singer-songwriter in Winslow’s “Standing on the Corner park”, joining another that looks like Jackson Browne, who wrote most of the Eagles 1972 hit “Take it Easy” after Browne actually got stranded in Winslow. He also got stuck trying to finish the song, so his friend came up with this line:

(Eagles) “It’s a girl my lord in a flat-bed Ford slowing down to take a look at me.”

Browne gave Frey a co-writing credit and two Phoenix radio personalities made sure he got a statue too.
