    Default Bernie Leadon Mentions in the Press/Blogs

    Saw a couple Bernie mentions in the press lately and figured I'd start a thread. Here's the first:

    Now, this is actually about his sister, but it's still interesting - she's running for Mayor of Gainesville, Florida!

    I had no idea that Bernie had come from such a large musical family.

    Me either, TBF. I had heard about Mark and Tom Leadon who were musicians, but that was it. I certainly didn't know that Bernie had 9 siblings.

    Great quote. Bernie knows a thing or two about not getting enough credit as he was one of the pioneers of country rock music himself. Chris Hillman and Gene Clark are the ones I'd credit most. Of course they both worked with Bernie in previous bands, all of which predated the Flying Burrito Brothers by several years.

    And quite frankly, without Bernie, the Eagles would never be where they are now....
    High up on his own, the Eagle flies alone and he is free...

    Wow, this is so strange - I was just thinking about this quote today because I was listening to "My Man" and I return to the board to see it commented upon!

    Indeed, Bernie doesn't get enough credit. It's ironic - when the Eagles began, he was the most recognizable name as a veteran of more than one well-respected band. As you pointed out, he had worked with the best in country rock prior to joining.
