What makes you think you deserve to be in the band?!
    I'm totally with you WalshFan88.

    I know! 5 years ago, could you ever imagine a scenario where over-the-hill country singer Vince Gill would be a member of the "Eagles", where they would be dropping real Eagles songs so they could play his solo numbers... it's so cringe-worthy. Glenn would probably be appalled.

    But this is "Don Henley's 'Eagles'" now, and he calls the shots.

    In Don Henley's Eagles, Vince Gill gets treated with more respect than Timothy, whose solo career has been completely ignored.

    In Don Henley's Eagles, real Eagles songs are shoved aside to give Don's buddy the opportunity to promote his solo career and maybe sell a few more records as a result of his "good fortune" to become an "Eagle."

    In Don Henley's Eagles, Vince Gill is considered an acceptable substitute for Glenn Frey. And in the end, that is the real sticking point. However, it must be nice for Don to have "replacements" he can completely control.

    Because in Don Henley's Eagles, obviously, he is the boss.

    In Don Henley's Eagles real Eagles songs are shoved aside in favour of songs with 'local' appeal like Tulsa Time & Walking To New Orleans. Glorified karaoke.

    Well... I have to admit something....

    I actually find the idea of them doing a special song for each city kind of cool.

    But one clever (IMHO) idea does not justify this abomination of a tour.

    I watched a recent video of Vince doing a solo song with the Eagles for about 10 seconds. He explicitly states "I asked if we could do a hillbilly song and this is what we chose". And by hillbilly song, they mean his brand of country music.

    So now he's brazen enough to ask a legendary band with their own great (and IMO way superior) songs to start including his soft country crooner lounge music in their setlist. It cheapens it even further. At this rate, the Eagles will just become a generic country-rock band. They were meant to rock, not twang.

    Vince Gill has no business being in the Eagles, and I don't care if Glenn was friends with him. I doubt he'd be ok with this. Vince Gill needs the Eagles. Not the other way around. I'm sure he kissed the ground when he got the call from Don.

    You think that's the only think he kissed?

    It would have been a clever idea with the real band.

    Are the "local" numbers always sung by Don and Vince?
