Power 96 Cool One Recap: Glenn Frey
Unfortunately this year has not started off well for our aging classic rock artists. So far we've lost David Bowie; Gary Loizzo from The American Breed ("Bend Me, Shape Me"); Dale Griffen, drummer for Mott the Hoople; and Glenn Frey, most famously as a founding member of the Eagles as well as a notable solo career. Yesterday's Power 96 Cool One was Glenn Frey's "Smuggler's Blues" from his second studio solo album, The Allnighter. Released in June 1984, it was Frey's highest charting solo work, reaching No. 22 on the U.S Billboard 200. The single peaked at No. 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, No.13 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and even made it onto the UK charts at No. 22.
Frey's hit single also appeared on the TV show Miami Vice as well as the soundtrack. He also appeared in the episode that his song was used in appropriately titled "Smuggler's Blues."
