    "Reciprocate". Had to look that one up.

    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 Glenn just couldn't make them sound good?) and the Don't Give Up intro didn't seem to be too hard for Glenn's fingers.

    Glenn's warm personality and his loyalty was admirable, as was the fact he wouldn't let you get away with letting him down or disrespect him. In other words, he reciprocated and wouldn't let you walk over him.

    I'm not surprised at all about Felder and his constant woe-is-me whining. It would wane on anybody. It was interesting though to hear it from the road crew! Just goes to show you that Glenn wasn't wrong nor was he in the wrong for getting rid of him. No one liked that stuff. It was good to hear that it wasn't just "The Gods" that got tired of it or had a problem. I'd wager to bet that Walsh and Schmit got tired of it too.

    I am surprised though about Glenn's guitar parts he would create that he supposedly couldn't play. I'm with Chaim all the way on this. Glenn was an awesome and catastrophically underrated guitarist!

    Thank you UndertheWire, Dreamer and New Kid for sharing your thoughts on the book. Does Thompson mention Randy? Don H and Glenn contributed vocals to Randy’s 1980 “One More Song” album. And I wondered maybe if the band or Irving talked about him.

    NMB - I don't remember him saying anything about Randy. He did not join the road crew until the LR Tour.

    I don't recall any specific mentions of Randy either, NMB. If there was, it was probably in the context of him being an original member.

    And re: Glenn creating guitar parts he couldn't play, I would question that as well. Of course, it's not impossible, but, I find it more likely that he created parts that he thought were well-suited for other band members to play live e.g. I Can't Tell You Why. As WF said, Glenn was an underrated guitarist, but his RA limited him in his later years.
