Glenn Frey: What Bad Reviews Mean

It's no secret that my favorite band of all time is The Eagles -- collectively and individually.

Darling Hubby sent me a YouTube link that I watched (when I should have been writing.)

It was an interview with the late great Glenn Frey.  on a YouTube interview. He said something I love!

"I firmly believe that if you're getting bad reviews, you're doing something right."

In some cases, I think that's very true because it probably means that what you're doing creatively is something that's more than 10% new.

Limits On New and Different

I read many years ago that the buying public always wants something new and different, but not more than 10% new and different because that's way more out of the box than they can accept.

Takeaway Truth

I still can't believe Glenn Frey is gone. Taken way too soon. RIP.
