    If not, those are some pretty Eagley backing vocals if they aren't Eagles singing them. JD Souther is on the album too, so it could be him overdubbed.

    EDIT: Ah, ignore this. I just saw Funk 50's detailed post on the previous page. JD on Time Out then.

    JD Souther has always been an interchangeable voice with the Eagles harmonies, surprisingly even with Joe. Jody Boyer, who I think is one of Joe's ex-Wives, sounds very much like Timothy on some Walsh LPs.

    The Henley/Frey writing partnership seemed to wither after the Hotel California album. Maybe it was the absence of the Henley/Frey/Meisner harmonies and the extra bit of vocal magic they added to the music.

    Compared to the amount of harmonizing they did in the 70s, I was disappointed that we didn't get a lot more from Henley and Frey singing together after their resumption in the 1990s.

    I associate the mellotron with the Moody Blues.

    Thank you, Funk. I don't think many of us realized what a multi-instrumentalist Walsh is. Someone on YouTube said his Mom was a piano teacher?

    Genesis for me. Horrible instrument but incredible sound. Joe destroyed his Mellotron when Barnstorm transported it from one gig to another upside down. When they opened the van it had fallen apart.

    What a tragedy. I love it when Joe goes all Genesesy,

    Happy belated 43rd Birthday(yesterday) to So What. My favorite Joe album.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Here's a Cameron Crowe interview from around the time that So What was released, when Joe was still considered a serious musician. It has a good chronology of Joe's career up to becoming an Eagle.

    Cool interview, thanks for sharing it. I would love to see the picture of Joe "slicked up" and in his "Beatles" gear playing at the prom.
