    I'm not fluent in German but I think "hat ... gedatet" should translate to "dated" which is much less entertaining than "donated".

    As for flying vs diving, I vote for both. Two sentences, one for diving and then one for flying. The word translated as "ticket" is Flugshein which certainly implies flight.

    This is quite late but thank you for your input about those German words, UtW.

    This interview was published earlier this year prior to Don’s February show in Pennsylvania. Some of the interesting (at least to me) highlights are that his latest album was called the “biggest guitar album of the year” by Guitar Player magazine and that he almost retired when he was 52.

    This quote stood out - which songs would those be?
    Some of the Eagles songs we do from the early ’70s sound better than when the original band plays them.”
    Also some advice from Bernie:

    “Bernie Leadon said if you want to write with Don Henley and Glenn, don’t write melodies, don’t write the harmonies; just write a musical bed and leave room for them to write a song on top of it. I had a demo, and I gave the cassette to Henley and Glenn, and they liked the tracks that became ‘Victim of Love’ and “Mexican Reggae,” which is what “Hotel California” started out as,” Felder said. “I should go back and listen to the rest of that cassette and see what else is on it.”

    My guess is that Don didn't have specific songs in mind. Kind of him to say "original" band even though there's only guy who was involved in recording them. Of course, when it comes to EARLY 70's it's one person more than in Felder's band. But I have no doubt that Felder's versions are strong.

    Ok, I was thinking he was referring to the early line-up(s) playing the songs but now that you put it that way it does seem he means the current line-up (since he uses the present term “plays”).
