Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen Add to Glenn Frey Tributes With Their Own Versions of "Take It Easy"

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Jackson Browne has paid tribute to Glenn Frey with the song they wrote together, the classic Take It Easy.

Browne and Frey used to live in the same block of flats in the early 70s. There one and only collaboration became one of Eagles biggest songs and was then recorded by Browne for his second album For Everyman.

Browne wrote the original song but was confronted by writers block so it missed his first album. Frey finished it off, adding the verse featuring the line “it’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford”.

Watch Jackson Browne pay tribute to his friend Glenn Frey with their song.

Bruce Springsteen also honored  Frey by performing the song at his Chicago concert.

Fans captured the moment and uploaded video to YouTube.

Bruce has covered the song once before. In September 2015 he performed the Glenn Frey/Jackson Browne penned classic at his Red Bank, New Jersey show.
