    I'm not a Vince Gill fan either.

    His music does nothing for me (but in fairness, I'm not much for that kind of country anyway) and while he seems to be a likable guy, I didn't care for his eagerness when he was first announced to be in the new lineup. If I were Glenn's friend and fellow musician, I'd say this isn't right and no way am I doing this. I think Vince is talented to be sure, but between his voice/music/playing doing nothing for me, and his interviews when he got the gig, I was very turned off. I've listened to a video of him singing Eagles songs, I was not impressed. I actually think Deacon does a better job in the band, but I still am against it regardless.

    I won't address any ofther points raised but I thought it was reasonable to mention that just once.
    Sorry I wasnít clear enough, you have an understandable view of it but he put down Vince Gill as 3 of his reasons while Glenn was only one. I donít think Vince Gill is THAT bad if you know what I mean

    I think it ranks right up there with the 'Glenn is not being replaced' argument.

It still doesn't feel right but I'm no longer angry.
    UTW - I am not a fan of segregating 'for and against' threads either. It just feels like a contradiction of terms to exclude members from a discussion on a discussion board. However, I think Soda was just trying to stop the constant circular arguing between the two sides of this issue, so I understand why she did it.

    I can't really think of an acceptable solution at this point. I just wish we could reach a point where fans could just agree to disagree, but be respectful of each other's views. But, maybe I'm just being naive that this is possible on an online forum. In any event, as I said yesterday, I do think there was some progress made in this thread and members have been more tolerant with a few exceptions.

    We may never know, but there is some discussion about this on pages 5 - 10 in this thread. Additional discussion is here if you really are interested. You can judge for yourself.

    Yes, I think that's a fair point.

    Considering Fagen is the voice of Steely Dan, it's no shock that he's touring as such. I saw Fagan & The Nightflyers last year, and most of his set are Steely Dan tunes.

The ticket prices are a market price. I do not judge people who get paid what they want. You can say don has fake humility but thatís your opinion and I find it to be false. I totally understand when people donít like the current lineup due to Glenn not being there but you just seem to be a Don hater, and seem totally biased. Any money don will be making will not afford him much comfort in this stage at life. He isnít able to make enough to radically change his style of living. Any money he makes will go towards his family. That is true for all of them besides maybe Timothy and Vince. Also I donít think itís fair to not like this lineup because of Vince Gill. You seem to be motivated by hate and not a love for the band and what is stands for which is what people who are against this lineup on this forum are about. Not you
    I agree with much of what you say, YEF. I would add that Don supports a number of charities including his own Walden Pond foundation and no doubt he wants to plan for and ensure their financial viability long after he passes.

    Thanks for that tidbit of info. Bernie probably hasnít toured like that since the 70s so thatís not too surprising, even though he seemed to be in the best physical shape of all of them.

    Too late I learned he appeared on the ďBuddy and Jim Radio ShowĒ (Outlaw Country SiriusXM channel) last summer. It would have been interesting to hear what he had to say, esp. if it had anything to do with the Classic Concerts.

He also tells a funny story about Vince Gill. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/...t/id1278270986
    Thanks for that link, UtW. That was indeed funny about Vinceóafter watching the HOTE documentary, he decided it would be better not to perform with the remaining Eagles. Lol, I wonder what changed his mind.

    For me, it's simple. Why not hire two extra touring members to lighten the band's work load -- with 52 plus concerts they can easily afford the added expense if you even want to call it that. Frankly I think it's a "dream team" business strategy/formula that is paying off big time.

    I am curious how the pie is being divided up.
