Thanks for that insight because my first reaction was a negative one - like when he goes forward, he's going to use 'Eagles' anytime he talks about the past instead of talking about Glenn. I think I'm still pissed off he used the word 'dysfunctional' in the first sentence of his tribute to Glenn and my subconscious is colored by that.
He managed to say "Glenn" later on in his speech.
He was in the middle of thanking Kenny Rogers and giving a tribute to Jim Ed Norman and it seems like he realised that he didn't want to derail that by talking about Glenn. He sounded quite emotional to me.
I got that too, but it was odd he didn't just go ahead and say "Glenn" because it was so obvious that is what he was saying and I don't think it would have derailed his speech about Kenny or JimEd if he mentioned Glenn in the way he was going to.
