    Interesting video.

    I thought he had his hair short, but he just had his hair in a ponytail. But it looks short with the ponytail.

    When I think of Tim in the 80's I think about two things from the documentary - 1) when Don Henley talks about the MTV culture and what the guys had to do to stay relevant (act, dance) and 2) when Tim talks about hustling to make ends meet. The type of music that Poco and the Eagles played was absolutely DEAD during the 80s. It was all Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lauper and Talking Heads, etc...The only long hair was on the bands Tim mentioned - Poison, Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, etc...and it was '80s rocker permed poofy hair, not hippy hair. I can see why he had to change his look and image to try to keep some money coming in - I think having a song on the Fast Times soundtrack helped to lead into that look.

    I'll just say I'm so glad the Eagles reunited, his hair grew out, and he has been able to hold his own against those 3 (previously 4) strong personalities in the band. I like to think he is the glue that holds them together - a peaceful, steady, musically talented presence whose voice they cannot lose for their harmonies. Anyone can be replaced, but I think those other 3 need his presence. I wonder about the dynamic between him and Don and Glenn.

    Yeah shun - He had the pony tail in the video, but by the time of the photoshoot for the album, he had cut it off entirely.

    Of course, I really don't know about this. However, I can say that in one of our conversations with Glenn and his daughter, Taylor, Tim's name came up and they both spoke very fondly of him - basically saying that he was a real sweetheart.

    OOps I forgot to had "short" in my paragraph.

    Oh ok. I didn't know he cut his hair after this video. I remembered seeing a picture of him in the documentary with short hair(which looks like the length in the video, but in a ponytail).

    He would had taken many many many years to get his hair back to his current length for HFO. I wonder when he started to grow it back long.

    He seems like a sweetheart. He seems like the shy Eagle behind Don.

    Probably fairly soon after he'd had it cut.
    'Playing it cool' was released in 1984, and Tim's next album 'Timothy B' was released in 1987. One of the tracks was 'Boy's night out' and his hair was slightly longer than shoulder-length by then.

    Thank goodness! Timothy is one of the few men who can pull off that long hair at any age.

    Not a bit surprising-- I just can't imagine anyone who could say something negative about him. He just seems like such an honest to goodness nice guy, humble and very likeable.
    He sings it high, he plays it low
