    Okay this is not a vote. I already voted for My Man.

    I was surprised to see backlash for James Dean as well as Good Day in Hell. I will admit they don't have the best lyrics, nor as much complexity. But, they are just absolute rockers and I would definitely have at least one of them on my dream setlist! I love the heavy guitars and when they perform those two live, especially with Walsh and Felder it is just palpable.

    In James Dean, the chemistry b/w Walsh and Felder is so entertaining to watch, and the dual synchronized guitar solo is awesome! And I love Glenn screaming 1, 2, 3, 4... in the beginning. My favorite version is 1976 Houston. Felder's Les Paul is so prominent and tasty-sounding there.

    As for Good Day in Hell, again Felder's Les Paul is just amazing. The slide he does, esp. live is brilliant. I like Walsh's solo before the last slide solo comes. I'd recommend checking out 1976 The Forum, which they released on 40th Anniversary. Otherwise for video, again, 1976 Houston.

    I really don't get the love with My Man. It is plain boring to me, although soulful and meaningful and maybe superior musically.

    Last thing, no offence, and no problem with it (everyone has opinions right?) but looking at this Forum for a few weeks. It seems like most members would trade in Hotel California and Joe Walsh in for Bernie Leadon and country rock.
    The chemistry... nuff said

    Not to go too far off-topic, but I absolutely would all day long. The Desperado era is my favourite of the band and Bernie was beyond salient to that sound. Joe was far superior in his earlier days than he was with the Eagles.

    Hmm - It looks like this round is going to be either My Man or James Dean eliminated. I'm not ready to vote either of these songs off, so I not going to choose. I'll just let the chips fall where they may ...

    I cast my vote for Ol' 55.


    Note: I am celebrating Easter with my family this afternoon, so the results for this round may be a little late in getting posted this evening. Please do not cast your vote for the next round until you see the official notification that the voting has began for Round 6.

    Seems like James Dean is the one. I like it marginally better than GDIH but . . .

    James Dean

    The next song to be eliminated in On the Border Survivor is My Man. “My Man”, the tribe has spoken and there’s nothing you can do to fight it. But, don't feel too bad, you're not all alone. So, travel along because that old hickory wind is calling you home. You are not our man, so you must leave the island.

    Too bad about My Man love that song, anyway I’m still voting James dean. Good day in hell is just a killer rock track and I think their most underrated song. I don’t like the fact that James Dean had 4 writers and that’s the best they could come up with. I vote James Dean again
