    Thanks for finding this, KW. Of course, I knew about this incident, but have never heard some of the details that are in this article.

    Quote Originally Posted by ultimateclassicrock.com
    Responding to the situation, office manager Ruth Manne invited 28-year-old Joseph Paul Rivera into her office with the hopes of calming him down. Instead, witnesses outside the officer heard the door being locked. “All of a sudden, we heard this ruckus like furniture being banged together, and maybe a file cabinet being overturned,” label executive Morty Gilbert said.

    Inside the office, Rivera shot a bullet into the ceiling and told Manne that he wanted the Eagles to lend him $2,500 because his truck had been stolen. He said his vehicle was sold by two men who had taken advantage of the fact that he was in a hospital recovering after being mugged. He asked for Browne, Don Henley and Glenn Frey by name. The label placed “several frantic calls” in an attempt to track down one of the artists but failed.
    I knew that it ended when the DJ played Desperado, but I had never heard that Rivera broke down in tears upon hearing the lyrics “Why don’t you come to your senses? You’re out riding fences.” I also was surprise to hear the incident lasted for about 2 hours. He was charged with kidnapping, possession of a weapon, and reckless endangerment. I always wondered what happened to him - did he get convicted and spend time in prison?

    Anyway, I guess you can tell I was intriqued by the Ultimate Classic Rock article.

    I know, right? That's some pretty serious stuff. I also was unfamiliar with the extra details in the UCR article that Dreamer quoted.

    Thanks for re-posting that article, CA!

    Terrible news!! Oh I hope the Troubadour can survive. Note: The Eagles are mentioned in the longer L.A. Times article but there’s a bit of a pay wall issue there. https://ktla.com/news/local-news/his...t4GRjX26wCRe4w
