    Glenn's slide playing at the end of Midnight Flyer probably wasn't totally "honest" in that genre, but that's what makes it different.
    Well said. I think the Eagles evolved over time and adding Don Felder and Joe Walsh was a genius move. I hate that Randy and Bernie left the band they were so very talented and an absolute blast to see in concert.

    Touring is also a lifestyle in and of itself and I have to wonder how much thought has been given to what happens when it all ends because eventually it will.

    Have there ever been long gaps in their touring? I've never followed their solo careers except for Glenn.

    I was a huge fan of Vince's for years. He is a great songwriter, singer and guitarist. Not so much anymore with the fandom though.

    I am thinking more about Deacon and Taylor. While I can appreciate the idea that being on tour is "healing" it is a style of living that takes some adjusting to when it's over. They are young making a very good living from an experience few people their age can relate to. Wives also face the dilemna of tours ending.

    I agree with you. Would love to see Timothy sing more and WBFS is a such a great song what a treat that would be.

    I didn't know WBFS. Just listened to it. A cool song.

    Freedom of Speech.

    I calls them as I see them just like other posters in this thread commenting on uppety Vince Gill even daring to think that he is a true Eagle-Don Henley's Eagles maybe but not the real Eagles.

    I was responding to how shocking her behavior and attire appeared to me and that's that. I guess I come from a different time and place. You can agree or disagree. Delete the post if it is a violation of posting rules and you'll get no argument from me. Just my two cents, I have no intention of dissing the miss.

    I was responding to another poster's observstion on how some wives have a hard time adjusting or "healing" once they are not on the road, and in the limelight, or on the arm of a powerful star, any more. Most rock stars wives to her credit, live vicariously through their husbands to begin with, that's nothing new. And, once the husband is gone, they have no "career" to return to for self fulfillment and oftentimes live in the past, "Glory Days," because what's the alternative.

    I think Felder was right, don't say anything negative or you'll get "fired." Or, to quote Stevie to LB when he corrected her grammar, "You wouldn't say that to Bob Dylan."

    "A more honest place". That just makes me sick. Really Vince? Glenn wanted the Eagles to MOVE ON from soft country music, he never would have wanted to go back to a "more honest" place of country music. He was a rocker from day one, not a country musician. Sure, they started out doing soft country/country rock but I think the guys did that to start because that's who they were hanging around. They wanted to be the Stones, not the Byrds anymore. He and the guys were sick of that by the time of, oh say, One Of These Nights. Hence why Joe joined and Bernie left right after that album was made. Vince is so stuck on his traditional country music that he thinks for the Eagles to be great they need to do classic country music again. I HATE country music, classic/traditional country that is. That soft country crooner stuff is nauseating to me. If the Eagles had continued on with the Desperado-era outlaw country stylings, I never would have been a fan of this band. Thank god for Hotel California and The Long Run! I like On The Border and One Of These Nights too, for the more rockier or RNB stuff with Felder instead of Bernie.
    Agreed.

    I must say however, how sad it is that Henley, Walsh & Schmit are so apparently willing to accomodate the wishes of this guy.
