Rolling Stone writer, Charles M. Young has passed away. Mr. Young wrote two cover stories about the Eagles. He also played for the magazine's team in the famous baseball grudge match with the Eagles. We were introduced to him in London in 2008 when he was working on his most recent Eagles article. He was incredibly gracious and kind to a couple of fans and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. He will be missed. He will be missed.

The Eagles are coming to town Sept. 15 to play the TD Garden, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will be sticking around to play at a much more intimate venue the following night. The band will play a fund-raiser for the Walden Woods Project and present actor-director-producer Robert Redford with the organization’s 2014 Global Environmental Leadership Award in “recognition of his enduring commitment to a range of environmental initiatives.” Eagles drummer-singer-songwriter and Walden Woods Project founder Don Henley will present the award at the Citi Wang Theatre. Proceeds from the show will support the Walden Woods Project, founded by Henley in 1990 to protect the Walden Woods, made famous in Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden,” and apply his philosophies through educational programs.
