    It's a joke site, like the Onion, only not clever or funny. I have seen people posting stuff from that site SO MANY TIMES on Facebook.

    I use this site as an example for my students to show them how you can't believe everything you read off the internet.

    Bernie gets a few mentions here from The Desert Rose Band.

    Here's an interview with Bernie from around 2004. Short answers but to the point and there are some nice pictures of him through the years.

    From an Eagles angle, there's one important quote:
    Secondly, it was my choice to leave when I did. I did it for good reasons, and do not regret it.

    I love that about Bernie. He did what he felt he needed to do; no bitterness, no regrets, no rancor.

    UTW did some excellent detective work in uncovering a 2013 interview that Bernie did with WSM's John Cowan. He talks a lot about The Eagles, but I thought it would be a good idea to have it posted in forum as well. It's definitely worth a listen. Here is UTW's original post that I'm bringing over ...

He covers a lot of Eagles stuff and some I haven't heard/read before such as how Earlybird came to be written.

    This is from the column of Doug Rumford, an ordained pastor who relates the topic of grace to his experience meeting Bernie and attending a concert from the HOTE tour.

    It was an unforgettable experience. When we arrived at the Forum in Los Angeles, we went to a VIP entrance and were ushered to Bernie’s dressing room, where he greeted us warmly. Bernie really respects Bill and truly appreciated Bill bringing his pastor and wife. After some conversation, Bernie asked if we wanted to do anything special, and I asked if we could walk backstage and see his guitars. (I was thinking I might get some pointers for playing with my cover band, The Fabulous Edsels!) So Bernie took us backstage where we saw racks and racks of some of the finest guitars I will ever lay eyes on. In addition to Bernie’s guitars, we also saw two racks for Joe Walsh (of “Hotel California” fame), and guitars for Glenn Frey and the back-up band. Beautiful! (Sorry for all the exclamation points!). Most of the guitarists played a different guitar for every song. We also met the guitar technicians who continually tune and care for the instruments. Then there was the whole backstage set-up with the lights, computers, video equipment and so on.

    After that tour we went back to Bernie’s dressing room and “hung out” for nearly half an hour, meeting some of Bernie’s family members and other friends he’d invited to the show. It was such a relaxing time. About 10 minutes before the concert began Sarah, Bill and I were ushered into our seats in Row Six, just to the right of center stage. I have never had such seats before—and never will again, I’m sure. I could watch all the chord progressions and lead-solo fingerings of Bernie and Joe Walsh—a guitarist’s dream! The concert was a blast—in more ways than one—and we felt a connection that really enhanced the whole experience.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!
