    Re: Don Felder videos on YouTube and other video sites

    This pitch thing is an interesting subject. It would be cool if it could have a topic of its own without anyone feeling that the Eagles are being bashed as singers. Especially when people get older,...

    Re: Don Felder videos on YouTube and other video sites

    I must say that, although I'll never get the chance to see Don live, I'd rather hear rough, occasionally out-of-tune singing than pre-recorded autotune'd stuff. I mean, Neil Young's singing isn't...

    I haven't compared that to other performances, but it sounds like he's singing live.

    Re: Felder Tweets

    Countless interviews were like that too, and once his story even changed from the way he told it in the book to make Glenn look bad in an interview. I'm not going to discuss them again, but it's...

    Re: Felder Tweets

    Didn't he even post a tweet about the "anniversary" of Don Henley's arrest at some point? Not a very gentlemanly thing to do, I think.

    EDITED TO ADD:

    Yes, that latest one was a nice tweet.

    Re: Don Felder in the Press/Blogs/etc.

    Great to hear that he tells the audience when he joined the band and when the early songs were released. So at concerts he's certainly not trying to make anyone think that he played on PEF, TIE etc.

    Re: Don Felder in the Press/Blogs/etc.

    That's a great point about not having any spontaneity after criticizing the Eagles for it. If he doesn't need any more money and plays just for the fun of it, he could do more spontaneous fun stuff...

    Wow that was a long introduction to The Long Run. 😄 I sort of get it. I don't think there's anything wrong with being proud of one's rise from poverty to riches, but (what I see as) the fake modesty...

    Re: Don Felder in the Press/Blogs/etc.

    I think the previous "cryptic" messages were worse - when Don and his ex were quoting songs by someone who had just died. Nice way to remember an old friend (or acquintance). These new ones are harsh...

    "I don't wanna hear me sing New Kid In Town". Then by all means do not sing it. I'm ok with that.

    Re: Eagles Mentions in the Press

    And, I think, the writer takes Teenage Jail (including Glenn's synth solo) far too seriously.

    Re: Don Felder in the Press/Blogs/etc.

    I have no doubt that Don lip syncs a lot, but I find it very hard to belive that he fakes any of his guitar playing. Additional guitar tracks? Maybe. Not playing his regular parts live? I'd have to...

    Re: Eagles books

    I wonder which guitar parts played by Felder were something "Glenn' fingers just couldn't play". Eagles songs don't have that challenging guitar parts in the first place in terms of notes (perhaps...

  18. Re: For Those Saying Glenn Frey is Necessary to the Eagles; no Glenn, no legit Eagles

    I guess I could call Gill's versions "nice", but I hear nothing special in the Eagles context. I think I could enjoy the Glenn songs as nice cover versions, but it is not EAGLES I hear. He's a...

    I didn't mean to downplay your experience. I'm sorry if I gave that impression. It's just that I've never doubted the musicianship of this lineup and I might even enjoy it myself if I don't think of...
  20. Re: For Those Saying Glenn Frey is Necessary to the Eagles; no Glenn, no legit Eagles

    I've never doubted that their performances are fantastic since they're all professional musicians except Deacon. But is Vince Gill singing NKIT a fantastic EAGLES performance? He's always thought...

    A minor detail...I've never paid much attention to the instrument Glenn played on TIE in the 70's, but I recall Felder saying in his book that he encouraged Glenn to play an electric instead of...
  23. Re: For Those Saying Glenn Frey is Necessary to the Eagles; no Glenn, no legit Eagles

    Personally I think I could probably watch their performance if it was shown here on TV, but I do consider it a huge mess in terms of authenticity and "eaglesness"

    "Reciprocate". Had to look that one up.

    We've come a long way from this:

    "It would just seem like greed or something. It would seem like a desperate thing.

    That was about performing without Glenn Frey. Now we have a DVD. 👍
