    Happy Belated Birthday to Michael Thompson.

    Also Erica Swindell got engaged yesterday. She just posted on her Instagram. He's a cute guy. He's also a musician.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Didnít see this posted anywhere (ok I didnít exactly search high and low ). This is a nice article about the guys who back the band members at concerts and on some of their albums. Discussed are John Corey, Scott Crago, Steuart Smith, Michael Thompson and Will Hollis.

    Thanks Delilah - That article has been posted before, but it never hurts to see things again.

    I remember the article because the picture they posted of Michael Thompson is not him.

    I think Stuart Smith is a great guitar player and works well with Joe, in fact he appears with Joe on his Vet's Aid concerts. Joe has been bring Stuart into his songs more and more. They play a lot of solo parts together but in harmony. It's easy to recognize Stuart in pictures because he uses a thumb pick which puts his right hand in a different position than those who use a regular pick. Stuart did a lot of guitar playing on the LROE album in fact Joe said that he did very little guitar playing and played mostly piano, keyboard and organ laying just solo parts and such.
    I have a question about Stuart. Has anybody heard him sing? I've looked for YouTube with him singing, even backup, and can't find anything. expect guitar of course. He's played with so many others but just no singing. Just wondering what he sounds like and where he fits in the Eagles harmony. I noticed in the Forum Concert he didn't sing as much. Usually he sings on most all the songs, in fact Joe seemed to sing more than Stuart.
    I love him and him and Joe on the talk box in "Those Shoes" I wish Joe would take Stuart on tour with him they look like they really like playing together. Joe really likes having another player to bounce off of. They complement each other so well.
    I going to take some flack for this but I think Stuart is just as good if not better than Don. While Don is a great guitar player, he songs he writes seemed to involve guitar solos as the primary and singing as the secondary. Stuart, like Joe, is a musician who plays guitar. He understands how a band works and everybody has different part to play in the band.
