    Default For Those Saying Glenn Frey is Necessary to the Eagles; no Glenn, no legit Eagles

    Here's our thread to express discontent. Sorry if the existence of this one thread pisses some people off, but we need a place to let off steam.

    I'm not going to try to bring others down, but I'm not going to pretend to be excited about it either, which seems to be what some people want from me.

    I'm resigned to this and I expected it. I'm just going to grit my teeth and endure it. They can only do it for a few more years, surely. This too shall pass.

    In a decade, we can all look back on it as an inglorious period that's best forgotten... and undoubtedly will be. When people talk of the great band that was the Eagles, the one that made music that changed lives, that changed the world, they won't be talking about this act.

    So I'll just keep looking forward to the day when this ends, as it must, eventually. Until then, I'm going to ignore all the reviews, all the photos, all the videos. I'm not going to visit the review threads unless there's some drama I need to deal with as an admin (hopefully never). I have nothing to add to those threads.

    I was surprised by Azoff's "celebration" comment and I'm not sure what to make of it. We'll see if anything like that ever gets said again. If it were legit... but I've become wary. When I hear exactly what I want to hear, I wonder if I'm being played (isn't that terribly cynical?) As I said, we'll see.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Well Soda, should I apologise for posting in the 2018 thread where they're all trying to celebrate unencumbered by the likes of us? I will then; I apologise for having posted there.

    I wish I could agree with you that this too shall pass, when all around us we see it being celebrated & praised as the new normal.


    However if we can still post here about what we dislike, I will say here that I found Walsh's comment about Gill filling the 'ghost voice in the harmonies' crass & insensitive. It was not just harmonies, for a start. Never mind.

    You know very well how it's going to be billed. I would even bet that they will drop the 'with DF & VG' tag.

    You don't have to apologize, but I actually find it freeing to have a thread like this. It's not just for their benefit. It's for ours.

    I don't like to argue either, and I have no desire to try to convince someone who's perfectly happy about "Eagles 3.0" - or the "nuEagles" or whatever you want to call them - that they shouldn't be. Still, when news like this breaks, I do want to talk about how I feel with people who get what I'm saying.

    I know not everyone agrees obviously, and several of the "pro" camp actively choose to come in here and argue about it, but at this point, most stay away from this thread. I find that to be a relief.

    Another benefit is that having the discontent here keeps other threads from detouring into back-and-forths over the same topic again and again. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, some may leak through as there will always be resentment that dissent exists. However, it's minimized.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Well, I guess I should apologize too as I am the one who apparently started it all. Jeez, what a freaking mess ! I never thought I would find myself arguing over something like this, especially with everything else we have going on in the world for the past year.
    FP - I have to say I could not agree with you more regarding Joe's statement about Vince. It hurt reading that from Joe. I realize he is trying to justify Vince's being in the band but still a poor choice of words. I just don't get how people think they are supposed to support everything the band does -right or wrong, just because they are fans.

    I also did not care for Walsh's comment -- it WAS crass and insensitive. But it confirms the sad reality that Glenn Frey has been replaced which from the very beginning is something the band appeared unable and/or unwilling to own up to.

    Which part did you find crass? Just the overall tone or was there a specific comment

    Now all they need to do to sell the whole shebang is to "get the widow on the set!"

    Default Re: Bob Seger Article about tribute to Glenn

    I think the album and the article points out how close Bob was to Glenn.

    I'll just point out that Bob clearly approves of Eagles continuing, as he played with them. Most importantly, in my eyes, at Classic West.

    It does seem that the people closest to Glenn do approve of Eagles continuing.
