    The thing is I donít think there is any concrete evidence for us to positively conclude that it was Bernie who came up with the opening riffs for all of those songs. Iím not saying he did or he didnít - I'm just saying we donít know for sure. Just because Bernie played those riffs doesnít necessarily mean he came up with them. While I agree that everyone is free to assume and believe whatever they wish, to me there isn't enough information available to declare it as fact.

    Take It Easy is probably one of Bernie's finest moments, that opening riff is legendary...and don't get me started on the guitar solo, probably one of the most recognizable guitar solos in rock n roll. Sadly, if you asked the common music fan who wrote it they'd tell you it was Joe Walsh

    Lyin' Eyes does start with Bernie's brilliant electric guitar theme above Glenn's (and Don Felder's) acoustic strumming. Tequila Sunrise starts with Glenn's acoustic, but Bernie's electric comes in before the first chord chance, unless my memory fails me! (Also another acoustic, by Bernie I suppose, comes in.) In Best Of My Love Bernie's pedal steel comes in during the intro; in pretty much the same way as in Tequila Sunrise. There's also some electric lead work in the Peaceful Easy Feeling intro, but it's not as noticable as the Lyin' Eyes intro. I think these are the bits Scarlet Sun is talking about.

    I've gotta go with Mr. Meisner on this one...
    It all goes back to a little 10-year old Grey, a Stevie Nicks-twirling-twerp who was really getting into rock & roll back in 1982...every time the song "Never Been in Love" came on the radio, to quote Ms. Nicks, everything stopped!!
    I will always adore that song...and now I have the entire album...plus some more of Randy's wonderful songs on the old Eagles' albums

    I really don't remember Randy or Bernie that well so I'd have to say Don Felder...I was quite shocked and disappointed when I heard he was out of the group...

    bren...I think everyone has mixed feelings about that dude.
    I mean JMO you can be a genius and be a "jerk" or you can be dumb as a bag of hammers but be as sweet as pie.
    I think he thought he was doing the right thing by writing the book and telling his side of things and believe it or not, DH and GF took the high road and didnt air their dirty laundry.
    but if I started to rant ...or write a book...that would be a wholenother thread.
    I think we can agree that Felder brings a lot of mixed feelings to most eagles fans. thee is no middle road with him your either on one side of the fence or the other..
