Vince Gill is set to fill the void left by the late Glenn Frey, a founding member of the Eagles, at a couple of upcoming festivals where the band will be performing.
Gill will split vocal duties with Frey's 24-year-old son Deacon at L.A.’s Dodger Stadium on July 15 and 16, and New York’s Citi Field on July 29 and 30, People magazine reported. Glenn Frey died in January 2016 at age 67.
"In my mind, I always thought I’d have made a good Eagle," Gill said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Frey co-founded the Eagles and is known for hits like "Take It Easy," "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Tequila Sunrise" and "Lyin’ Eyes," People magazine noted.
Don Henley, one of the bands' members, recently said that at one point he thought the band would be no more after Frey died, but says he might have been wrong.
"While I was still in shock during some interviews after Glenn passed away, I did say that I thought that was the end of the band," Henley said after rehearsals for the upcoming festivals. "But I reserve the right to change my mind. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, ‘A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.’"
