    Re: Corona Virus

    Thank you for the updates. I hope they all continue to improve.

    As the numbers increase, I start to feel more detached and so connections like this help to make it feel more real. (I'm not sure...

    Re: Eagles books

    Norton's time with the Eagles has to have been 1980 or possibly 1979-80 and probably was months rather than years. When his collaborator referred to "mild dementia" in the introduction, I was a...

    Re: What's Happening In Your Life?

    That's great news! You could have some busy months ahead of you. I don't think you've said about the degree in meteorology before but it must be exciting to get a job that may be influenced by the...

    Re: Corona Virus

    Here's my confession: I've yet to wear a mask in public!

    One thing that is confusing is that the rules vary so much from place to place. Even the different countries that make up the UK have...

    Re: Corona Virus

    Austin, amid all the gloom, there are reasons to be cheerful.

    As time goes on the scientists and medics are learning more about the virus and how to treat it. So the longer we can hold off getting...

    SS, my thoughts are with you. Losing a parent is hard even when you have time to prepare for it.

    Re: Eagles books

    Congratulations. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it.

    I didn't learn anything earth-shattering but instead it confirmed/enhanced my impression of Glenn's quirks and personality. A...
  12. Re: Laurel Canyon Official Trailer | History of the Eagles and the Hippie Portrait

    I found an interview with Alison Ellwood about it. The bit about not having the artists on camera made me chuckle. Who could that have been?

  13. Re: Laurel Canyon Official Trailer | History of the Eagles and the Hippie Portrait

    I've not been able to track it down, yet. I saw Alison Ellwood's name so she will certainly have access to Eagles material but is it the same as in HotE?

    More a series of anecdotes and little in the way of debauchery and excess. There are a few references to the white powder and gambling and we also learn Glenn's signature dish when wooing a lady.

    Re: Eagles books

    I'm 61% of the way through and it's an easy and fairly entertaining read (and worth the price of the Kindle download). The descriptions of life as a roadie make me think of the Roadies TV series. The...

    Thanks for the link to the interview with Bernie. My favourite line: "When I was in my twenties, people that were talking about what went on 50 years ago were talking about World War I."

    Re: RIP John Prine

    I'd nver hear of John Prine and to me he was just another 70-something who had died of Covid 19. Just a number, not a person.
