    Yeah, that incarnation of the band has been gone for over three decades. It's a shame that you can't enjoy the new music but at least you can replay those five Eagles albums again and again. You can also listen to the solo work, if you have it, and find some comfort there.

    I already know how to get my fix. LOL

    Honestly, I can listen to the older songs over and over again and they still sound awesome to me, thank God. And judging by the sales and radio plays, I must not be alone.

    I agree. The radio stations play the older songs quite a bit. A day does not go by where I do not here at least one song from those albums on the radio.

    There is no shame. It is best to comprehend why others choose to exalt one version of recordings over another.

    With the benefit of the documentary and various interviews, it seems that for the band, some of the magic was lost after Hotel California. I'm not sure if Randy leaving was a cause or a result of that loss. However, Timothy brought his own magic. I knew next to nothing about him before this summer but I'm enjoying listening to and watching him - possibly more than Randy.

    I still prefer the first four albums and, for me, a little of the magic went with the move to the harder, more guitar-based music. I love that Bernie is back for the current tour and that they're playing so much from the Desperado album.

    Sorry, Randy-lovers!

    I should have added that I'm finiding new magic in their later work. How can a bunch of sixtysomethings sound so good? I've also listened to some of the solo work and have found new music to love.

    That's a good way to look at it. Old magic has been lost, but new magic has been gained. Certainly Randy is missed but Timothy has added much.

    I know that feeling; in Yes fandom I'm a huge fan of the 80s version of the band because Trevor Rabin is my favorite musician overall. I think the band suffered after he left and of course it's obvious why that's my opinion.
