    I don't think of Glenn, Don, Joe and Tim as the Eagles. I see the Eagles as faceless. A band of musicians depending on which track is playing. Some tracks on Long Road Out Of Eden heavily featured Smith and Hollis, I'm sure Joe Walsh is absent on some tracks. I don't know about a newspaper headline.

    On a point of pedantry, Bernie and Randy didn't come and go, they were there at the beginning.

    That's news to me

    I understand anybody being unable to call Glenn a "Former Eagle" so soon after his death but the fact is, it's the accurate description.
    The only thing I can say about Bernie is he was on the last tour as a special guest and yes, it was very enjoyable and Glenn told him there would be more. But as far as we know he was never asked to become an Eagle again though. Scott, Steuart, and the others have never been Eagles although they do make a huge contribution. I dare say if you asked one of them if they were in the Eagles, they would say they work for the Eagles.

    Faceless Eagles? Sorry, I can't even imagine a faceless Eagles. These four have been there for too long and are ingrained in my mind as the band.

    I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this. Every one has their own opinion about who the Eagles are.

    The final four are very similar to the First 4 IMHO.
