Glenn Frey is gone, but his legacy lives on. Frey’s son Deacon is set to take the stage in Frey’s place with the Eagles in the summer of 2017, according to tasteofcountry.com.
Frey died in January of 2016, and many believed it would spell the end of the iconic country-rock group, whose long list of hits includes “Take It Easy,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “Take It to the Limit” and “Desperado.” But Frey’s musical partner in the Eagles, Don Henley, tells sports talk radio station KTCK in Dallas that Deacon Frey is confirmed to perform with the Eagles this summer.
“There’s going to be an official announcement in a few days, but let’s just do it here. Glenn’s son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task,” Henley reveals (quote via Best Classic Bands).
