    It's funny - you'd think we superfans would be the ones who'd most want to see it, but a lot of us know so much, and are so invested in accuracy, that many times we'd actually be the ones who'd like it least!

    This is very weird to me. An orchestra was going to perform Hotel California but were informed that "the Eagles no longer want to license their music to other artists."

    Don't *want* to license their music, or just want to make it prohibitively expensive? It's not entirely clear from this article.

    Usually songwriters want people to cover their songs, as it's a source of revenue.

    WOW! Thanks for finding that, NMB. That is such a shame. I just don't understand their mindset about these matters. I get that they may want to maintain some control over who performs their music and may be concerned about overexposure - but $10,000 performance fee per song is really way over the top. It sure doesn't do much to help their image as 'cash cows'. Surely, there is a middle ground here.

    I don't understand either. I always wondered why the Houston Symphony (world class musicians/organization) never did an "Eagles" performance since they have done so many other bands. This is probably the reason.

    Apparently this is a new policy for the Eagles, as this same orchestra did a performance of Eagles songs last August with no problem.

    Though, at least according to David Letterman's producer in this clip, the band has had a blanket "no television" policy for some time.

    $10,000 per song?

    I wonder what the price was before?

    Here's an update on the situation. Apparently the $10,000 per song thing isn't true.

    Thanks for that, wc. That does put a different light on the situation.

    Dreamer, I could not agree more. I don't get it either. That performance fee is crazy. It appears the Eagles do not care about "a middle ground". I guess I should not be surprised as it has always been about the money for them. Remember the whole David Letterman fiasco. Sad that this attitude prevents people from enjoying their music - potential buyers of the HC album.

    Well - according to that interview that whitcap posted, Irving denies that they are asking for a performance fee of $10,000 per song. It does appear that the symphony owners were aware of some requirements that they just ignored. So who knows - the real truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.
