    I rarely post or visit this site anymore, as I feel there is a double standard.

    You fit right in as long as you worship Frey or Henley, but Heaven forbid Felder comes up, you're likely going to get ripped up one side and down the other.

    It's starting to become cruel.
    Somethings never change!!!

    Well, not only were the former Eagles not honored, they were not even acknowledged. While I figured it would be something of a miracle if their names were mentioned, I did think showing a few early pictures of the band would at least be some kind of nod, an admission that they existed.

    That wasn't the case. The KCH seemed to take pains at making sure these 3 were shown as little as possible. They were cropped out of footage and pictures. There was one photo that showed the original 4; it was from the '73 Voorburg concert and the images of Glenn and Don were brightened while Randy and Bernie's were darker. There was a photo from the '74 California Jam that showed a view from behind; you can see the back of Henley's head as well as Glenn's and Bernie's. That's it. Don Felder fared worse. There was one picture of him where he's onstage at the '77 Capital Center concert with the others; it's a side view of his face. Of course, these images were shown quickly.

    This was so disappointing. A person totally new to the band could see this and surmise that the early Eagles were nothing more than Frey and Henley and a couple of anonymous backing musicians. So misleading and so dishonest. This was a letdown by the KCH who I suppose were embarrassed by the petition. Or maybe they were under strict orders by Henley and Azoff to do it this way. I'm not sure what to think anymore.

    Now that this is over, I am hopeful this Revisionism that's been going on for awhile will fall by the wayside, as new and younger fans come to discover this great BAND (not duo). Ok, rant over.

    Oh my, that's terrible. I thought at least the contributions of the other members - what did you call them? The Three Who Must Not Be Named - would be acknowledged. Very unfortunate.

    I too hope this attempt to rewrite history is not a sign of things to come.

    Although I would have loved for them to be mentioned, I was not surprised that they were not what with all that has been said. But I was kind of surprised they did show glimpses of them in videos and pictures, I was not expecting any reference at all.

    I do feel that the whole Eagles segment was rushed as someone mentioned elsewhere.

    I don't know what went on, but if the former members were totally ignored, that's sad and not cool IMO. Although it's probably fine by Bernie.

    Chaim, here is a video showing the photo montage from the ceremony so you can decide for yourself. Hopefully you can access it. There's a picture of the OOTN lineup about 30 seconds in that I overlooked, plus a couple of others of Don F from the HC and LR tours. So it's a little better than I initially thought, but not by much.

    It was a bit strange, so many photos and videos featuring just Don H and Glenn only, as if they were on their own.
