[ Video ] Glenn Frey: Part of You, Part of Me

Thelma & Louise was the bet of the lifetime for Alan Ladd Jr, who was heading the production of MGM in 1991. Maybe that was the reason Glenn Frey, who had been enjoying a healthy post-Eagles career thanks to two soundtrack hits (Heat Is On / You Belong to the City), was called in. Well, the lightning did not strike the third time. The movie itself became a cultural phenomenon and a modest hit but ultimately couldn’t save MGM from financial doldrums, forcing Alan Ladd Jr. to leave his position and seek a new world, just like his dad did in the iconic movie. And Glenn Frey? Yes, we heard him again in another movie—Jerry Maguire—as an actor. Oh, and in the Eagles reunion. Staple song: The One You Love (in South-East Asia, you hear this song more often than this week’s Top 40. Glenn, if you are looking for quick cash, come to Taiwan.)
