Bob Seger + Others Pay Homage to Eagles at Kennedy Center Honors [VIDEO]
Bob Seger honored the Eagles and paid tribute to fellow Detroit native Glenn Fry last night at the 39th annual Kennedy Center Honors. (First video below) Seger was joined by Vince Gill and the Kings of Leon for a spirited version of 'Heartache Tonight,' which he co-wrote with Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and J.D. Souther for the Eagles' 1979 album 'The Long Run.'
The Eagles were slated to be honored at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, but postponed due to Glenn Frey's health issues. Frey passed away in January of this year.
Seger, Gill, and the Kings of Leon were joined by Stephen Colbert, Ringo Starr, and Juanes to perform 'Life in the Fast Lane' to close out the show. (Second video below.)
The annual event honors some of the entertainment industry's biggest stars, who've made lifelong contributions to their craft. James Taylor, Mavis Staples, Al Pacino, and Martha Argerich were honored as well.
