Lol, there’s this one from the keyboard 💉

You’re welcome, I’m glad there is someone else interested in John Corey besides me. He is indeed quite talented. Here’s a snippet that provides a nice brief summary of his career.

Quote:
John Corey played piano and organ on The Who’s 2012/13 Quadrophenia & More tour. John has played keyboards and/or guitar for many artists including The Eagles, Don Henley, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks, Eddie Money, Jude Cole and Randy Meisner. He has also enjoyed success as a songwriter. He sang and played keyboards and guitar on The Eagles’ Hell Freezes Over DVD, and toured extensively with them for seven years. Corey’s first experience with The Eagles was when he contributed to Randy Meisner’s self-titled solo album in 1981, as Musical Director, guitarist, and songwriter. In 1989, he was very involved with Don Henley’s album, The End of the Innocence, acting not only as a musician but also as a producer, and co-wrote two of the songs with Henley, most notably, ‘The Last Worthless Evening,’ which made it into the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Having played guitar with Don since 1985, he began his role of Musical Director on the tour for that album. John co-wrote and recorded several songs with Henley, over the years, his favorite being, ‘Annabel,’ which appeared on the Inside Job album. In the early 80’s, John played guitar and keyboards in Silver Condor with Earl Slick and Joe Cerisano. They made their only Billboard Hot 100 appearance with the Solid Gold Hit, ‘You Could Take My Heart Away,’ which was written by John.

LOL! Thanks! How did you make that??

Yes, I'm interested in John too. Talented, nice smile, handsome....I mean, I know what he looked like back in the 90's. I wonder what he looks like now.

There's no question the man can write a good song! I started looking up some of the Sky stuff, a lot of which he wrote, and he's good! So very talented!

Glad to meet you, Delilah!

I'm listening to this song and had to crack up for a moment because I used to have a cat named Delilah!

Ha ha, I wouldn’t have a clue how to make it. It’s from the emoji key on my ipad’s keyboard.

If you click on The Who link, there’s a current pic of him with his bio (just scroll down some). Now I’m curious about his music with Sky.

It’s nice to meet you too!

(Funny about your cat named Delilah)

Haha!! True! I haven't been able to find anything about the meaning behind the song. May have to dig a little more.

Okay, I have a question....is John short for Jonathan, or is it just John?

Hi Ariadne; I have only seen him referred to as “John” but that’s not saying much. It’s too bad your searches are turning up little.

Here’s a picture from the 80s though.



Have you heard Randy’s Dallas live show from 1982? I can’t help but wonder if that’s John making all the announcements, since he was Randy’s musical director.
