When hell freezes over …

July 31, 1980 ~  Alan Cranston is running for the Senate and calls on The Eagles to help. They oblige and hold a fundraising concert in Long Beach, California to support Cranston. The Eagles had been fuming for while with Don Felder and Glenn Frey cussin’ and feuding through the whole show – Frey caught on mike saying “only a few more songs before I kick your fuckin’ ass.”

It turned out to be the last concert for The Eagles until their infamous “Hell Freezes Over” tour 14 years later – the name taken from Henley’s exclamation after that Long Beach show when asked by a reporter when we’d see the next live Eagles concert:  “It’ll happen when hell freezes over.”

So, I’m wandering around Galina today and I spot this CD I’ve been seeing all over town in the antique store I’m in. Driftless Sisters, I learned, are a local duo who have been friends since they were kids. Their Dads ran competing antique stores in Galina and now they’re making music together. So … I bought CD and listened on the way home. I think it’ll be in the CD player for awhile. Stick with it, sisters. You guys are good. 

Oh, and the host who checked me out at the antique store was a joy. Looked a lot like Kat Karberg. 

Listen/purchase: Sparks from the Fire by Driftless Sisters
