David and I are both huge Eagles fans and firm believers in a “Take It Easy” lifestyle, but we had never been standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. Call us wacky, we were pretty stoked about the prospect.
The town of Winslow is pretty stoked, as well. They built a little monument to the lyric, complete with a reflection of “a girl, my lord, in a flatbed Ford slowing down to take a look” at the statue named “Standing On The Corner.” The mood is captured.
