    I have to agree with almost everything in Soda's post. As I've said many times, Don, Joe, and Tim are all grown men and if any one of them had been unwilling to do this, I don't believe it would have happened. The only pass I would give Joe or Tim is if they had been contractually obligated to participate, which is doubtful.

    I wonder if we will ever know why Bernie didn't join them for the "third act"?

    I also agree with Soda that it is ridiculous to call this the "third act" and put it on the same level as the first two. I also don't believe that their income is on the same level. Yeah - they are still selling out venues, but let's not forget, they are not playing nearly as many shows as previous tours. They are carefully choosing targeted cities where they are sure to sell tickets, but have cut back on the number of dates so that those who wish to see them have less to choose from. So, I do think there is more financial impact than we may realize. Of course, they can thinly disguise any negative impact with clever rhetoric, marketing, and higher ticket prices.

    Just a heads up, it's not going to be taken well by those of us who don't like this new band. His comments are really irritating me right now. He's a great artist, writer, and singer, but as a person I find I like him less and less. I'm probably alone in that but he really just grinds my gears. And not just concerning 3.0 but a lot of his comments, statements, and attitudes over the years. I wouldn't want to meet the guy.


    "I thought that was a great idea but it wasn't enough", Henley says "Glenn would be there in spirit but I told our manager, we need the blood" Just kidding...

    Now seriously, my favorite Eagles are the ones of the seventies: young, handsome, on top. And then because of Glenn Frey and Don Felder, and then because of Glenn Frey and then...
