James Dean died today in 1955 in a car crash, he’s still considered one of the greatest method actors of all time, despite his incredibly short span of work. He’s still considered a fashion icon, and to this day, there seem to be more questions about his life, than answers, largely because he was a very private man.
It makes sense then that today’s video is the Don Henley penned Eagles tribute to the man, ‘James Dean’. The songs lyric. ‘too fast to live, too young to die’ is synonymous with James Dean.
The video featured below in its 1976 vintage is a performance of the song in Seattle.
