Sharing the Glenn Frey love with the people! City of the Week in Royal Oak - Glenn Frey, we salute you.

Every year, to honor Glenn Frey‘s birthday, Big Jim’s House holds “Glenn Frey Day.”  Glenn was born on November 6th, 1948. In 2020, City of the Week honored Glenn with his own Royal Oak- Glenn Frey City of The Week.  We looked for places that Glen had a connection to.  We went to the street Glenn lived on.  Of course, we visited Glenn Frey Drive and Dondero High School.

Scroll down to check out our pictures and find out more about Royal Oak – Glenn Frey or read on for some interesting facts about Glenn.

Glenn Frey Factoids

Glenn Frey got his start with Bob Seger.  You can hear Glenn playing on the album version of “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.”

Glenn was a multi-talented musician.  Not only did he play guitar, he also sang, and played the harmonica and the keyboards.

Before The Eagles formed, they toured with Linda Ronstadt as her backup band.  Glenn was hired because they needed someone to play rhythm guitar that could also sing.

Glenn loved to golf.

We had a great time (as always) in Royal Oak.  We were glad to get out and share Glenn Frey Drive with Royal Oak and find out as much as we could about Glenn’s formative years in Royal Oak.  Glenn Frey is one of the most beloved hometown musicians of the Detroit area and Michigan as a whole.  Thanks for having us out, Royal Oak!
