    What is the "in between the dark and the light" bit that was missing?
    MC it's the guitar bit just after that, I wouldn't call it a riff as such. As far as I remember it's not on all of the recordings, but if you listen to the song you'll probably know what I mean straight away. I do wish they had been able to get Randy Meisner on this tour, he makes all the difference to that song.

    Sorry I didn't have anything more exciting to share, I think I've had a lifetime of luck on this tour already

    GA Hartford on the 15th is our next and final show. Then it's waiting to see if we're both included in the 35% of redundancies our employer is making. Hey, maybe one of the Eagles is looking for a Captain for their superyacht

    I loved how Glenn sent out "Take It to the Limit" to Randy and said he hoped Randy would be alright.

    Flojo, I also had a constant yapper seated near me. Our seats were $400 each; I cannot imagine paying that kind of dosh and then talking over the music the whole time. Unbelievable.

    Anyway! Back to the music. Did anyone notice something different about Don's voice? Specifically, he was kind of lisping, like something was wrong with his front teeth? Whatever was ailing him, he was able to rally as the show went on and did a great job.

    I know we've teased Glenn about telling the same jokes, but they're still working so ya can't really blame the guy. The "plaintiff" line got such a huge laugh from the crowd that even Glenn seemed amused.

    I was really happy to hear Mr. Frey say that they were inspired to do 4 and 5-part harmonies because of the Beach Boys. "We're the settlers, but they were the pioneers." I knew Frey was a fan, but never heard him specifically talk about the BB influence on Eagles harmonies.

    Oh, the descending flourish (what else to call it?) - I hadn't noticed they didn't play it. I was impressed as hell with Steuart's playing on that.

    Joe was brilliant, as usual. He makes it look so easy. "Life's Been Good" was a huge highlight for me. Somehow, when I saw them 2 years ago, I didn't see the backdrop video featuring Joe in a Godzilla costume destroying a city.

    Glenn in his Miami Heat jersey, or whatever you call a shirt that basketball players wear.

Well, no I don't feel robbed because I knew that going in they'd be playing the same songs. Do I wish they had varied the set? Absolutely. But I don't get to make decisions for the band - my decision point was in buying a ticket (or not). They run their own business and they do it well. What else is there to say really? Some artists feel a great need to keep the set list consistent: Fleetwood Mac, the Police when they toured a few years ago. They have videos and lighting that have to be synced with the performance - maybe that's why, I don't know.

    Basketball and football players where jerseys. In hockey they are traditionally called sweaters, but that is slowly falling by the way-side.

    Now, my question is what does the number 1 on the jersey stand for? Is there a current Heat player who wears #1? It is just a jersey with a number on it? (I've had a few of those before). I wish there was a shot of his back so that I could tell.

    The back says FREY. I think Pat Riley is a friend and had it made special for Glenn. I wonder if the other guys got a jersey too.
