Farewell to Glenn


Last night was a memorial for Glenn Frey at the Los Angeles Forum.The Frey family and 300 friends came to honor his life and career. Ed Begley Jr. introduced all the performances by Jackson Browne, J.D.Souther, Bob Seger, Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, Timothy B. Schmit and more. The remaining Eagles played backup for some of these artists as well. Cameron Crowe gave a moving speech as did Don Henly and Glenn's wife Cindy and daughter Taylor. Deacon Frey played and it was amazing!

They gave everyone this key chain to carry a little piece of Glenn around and hopefully open some doors to new adventures. Happy Trails Glenn, the most important key you give to all is that you were a nice, sweet, good man.






here is a photo of the amazing Leslie Morris, J.D. Souther and Renee Pappas inside the forum at the very end.

Cachupa


"Cachupa" is a typical dish from Cape Verde (an archipelago in African Northwest) influenced by Portuguese "Cozido", with beans and several kinds of meat and spicy sausages boiled together, where potato and cabbage are replaced by corn.
Creoulo, is the Cape Verdean language, a mixture of several African dialects and Portuguese.
Lula, is a designer and a musician who developed his musical career in alternative bands 'til he made his own musical cauldron.
The 1st song, talks about the relationship of a man and a bottle of brandy.
The 2nd song is named "Orange Tree Love". I guess it talks about the pleasure of lying close to that tree...
