I do not think they were friends. Jackson stated the same in the interview. But, I do feel Glenn's death did affect him(and Joe & Tim) deeply. Just not enough to pack it in. JMHO.
    I think he was very upset by Glenn's death. Even if they were estranged, they had shared quite a bit of history, and were very close at one time. I realize I can't know what he felt, but still, considering all of that... surely he would have felt the loss intensely.

    However, yes, he obviously wasn't upset enough to hang it up, or to resist all that money. That would have required him to be truly devastated.

    But I never expected him to end the Eagles based solely on an emotional connection to Glenn; I also thought there would be loyalty and artistic integrity involved as well.

    I also think he/they were very upset/devastated by Glenn's death and I said that. I did not mean to imply it did not affect them. I hope it did not sound like that.

    I agree with you.

    I guess a lot of my post does seem rather redundant.

    While I think they were probably upset by his death, to me, they didn't seem too upset. I think I can believe Joe's sorrow more than Don's at this point. I think Joe and Glenn were close. I just can't believe that Don was that deeply affected by it by his behavior and comments after his death. I agree with NKIT, they weren't really all that close at the end. It was a business relationship, not a friendship or brotherly thing. I think while Don was upset, he wasn't so upset as to turn down the money and didn't feel he was essential (which he IS). That bothers me, but we all know that by now. It's just very disappointing to me.

    I can't just go back to "business as usual." Move Glenn to "former Eagles." Replace the banner including Glenn with one including Vince Gill and Deacon. Gush about all the wonderful new "Eagles" shows in the review threads and eventually, let all the reviews including Glenn fall further away.... page 2, page 3... Put on a happy face.

    Other people can feel free to celebrate this "Eagles" but I won't be joining in. I'm tired of being told I have to.

    It is the way it is.
    Think of it this way, if you could add 2 guys to play with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr could you call that band the Beatles ?
