Iím not sure where to put this exactly but Deacon made a post saying that his favorite Eagles song is pretty maids all in a row. I think thatís an interesting song choice. I cant say I agree but it is a song I like a lot

Really? Interesting choice. I'm surprised it isn't a song that his father sang. I love Pretty Maids, and it's one of my favorites of Joe's, but not a favorite by any means.

The man has good taste, well inside my top ten too.

I think choosing a Glenn song would be too predictable and obvious. PMIAR is interesting and a bit unexpected though. It reminds of what some of the students said in the Photo Analysis thread about Deacon admiring Joe and wanting to be like him.

I love the comment someone posted in response (on IG, btw):

Hmmm, interesting. Good song, but not in my top twenty. I would have thought he would pick a rocker!

It feels a bit weird to me he didn't pick a song of his dad's, and there are many to choose from...

I suppose maybe the growing up theme of the song resonates with him at this stage of his life. I personally really like the song but yeah you would think he would choose something else, particularly one from his dad

Wow. Went to Instagram and all I want to know is what is with the video of the pet chimpanzee posted just below the PMIAR post?

Personally, I find this extremely troubling.

Laughing? Sorry, I don't think what I just watched is funny at all.

Wow...that is just vile.

I've never been to his Instagram much but maybe once or twice.

That fact he is sharing that video which IMO constitues animal abuse is really sad and very disappointing in Deacon. Not cool. Glad to see some comments on his post that agree. Deacon still has some growing up to do, it seems, just from what I've seen on his social media accts. Frankly, I'd expect more maturity at his age.

I agree. That is not right.

But the thing is, it is not even shocking to me. As a Generation Z child who knows today's pop culture (not completely though) many stars, particularly rappers all engage in smoking and all that, though doing that to a chimpanzee is not funny at all. Also, I wouldn't really be surprised if his rapper friends found it funny. Thank God he is kinda low key, otherwise so tabloid outlets would pound on him with news stories.

I agree itís not good to do to a chimpanzee but I donít think the media would say anything about it. There are many popular artists who have proven records of violence and other terrible things, but yet remain highly popular. This would be nothing compared to some of the things other have done. But I also agree that it seems to be a bit generational as people in his friend group seemed to find it funny.

One person commented at first glance it seemed funny until it wasn't.

Another said Lucky Monkey.

All I know is I am personally shocked and upset by what I inadvertently stumbled upon and viewed on someone's public social media account.

For me, this isn't about Deacon Frey or his friends. It's about the animal in the video and his/her rights.

PS. Didn't mean to disrupt the thread. My apologies.

No need to apologize. I can understand being upset by seeing that. It was definitely not appropriate to post

I beg to disagree with the generational part. What I am trying to say is that in this generation, if he was as famous as Glenn Frey (like as in the "in thing") he would have been hounded by the media. These days, many famous people, particularly more main stream, lose their gigs over drugs, etc, something extremely common back then. And maybe it's just that they're just like what Deacon is.

And also, while they remain popular, they remain popular, nearly every time, for the wrong reasons. They then redeem themselves when they get rid of the aforementioned bad habit.

I just disagree I guess. There are a few artists who have done some really horrible things that do not compare to posting an inappropriate video but I donít see the point of continuing this discussion

Agreed, cosec.

An interesting song choice. Deacon obviously has listened to more than what he has learned for the concerts. I agree that picking a song of his dad would have been a bit obvious. If PMAIAR really IS his favorite song, then that's what his answer to the question should be. You can't help what moves you.
