If you are into these "Eagles", you should be following him. Oh my freaking gosh, he is working it. Dang.
    It kind of just makes me shake my head, honestly. They have a 17 year old doing their promotional work now. LOL! Otis, Deacon, Will, and whoever else. It's just too much IMO.

    But yes, if you like 3.0 you'll want to follow Deacon and Otis on IG and Twitter for sure. That's where you'll get the news. It certainly won't be from Uncle Don, seeing how he is so stuck in the past with social media and YouTube, etc. In fact, while I'm sure that Otis has clearance to do what he does, I have to wonder how Henley feels about it. He is usually so stuffy about these kinds of things, I'm surprised he ok'd it.

    Have you seen how freaking lame their official social media is, with the exception of Joe? I went looking for their Twitter to link to it and they don't even have one (didn't they used to?), much less an instagram! As for their Facebook, they just post generic ads whenever they release something.

    They are lucky he is doing something. Maybe nobody told Don.

    If Don is like my dad (and they're about the same age), he will never understand the appeal of social media, and he will always view it with fear and loathing. Meanwhile, my mom gets on Facebook every day.

    And if you signed up for the newsletter on their site, don't expect to ever get one.

    Oh absolutely! Joe has a good social media presence, especially when he was doing his solo tour.

    Yeah, they used to have an Eagles Twitter but not anymore. And yes - OMG the ads. It's basically like an advertisement page. They don't use it to share anything of value.

    Haha, if no one told Don I really hope for Otis' sake he never finds out! I'd hate to think he'd rip on him. He's doing them a favor actually by bringing them into the 21st century. I think in the case of Don, he has always been too stuffy and philosophical, even when he was younger - especially about the time his solo career started. I mean, I don't think David Geffen is some sort of angel, but he clocked it with "malcontent".

    I think old men tend to be stuck in their ways. I certainly hope to never be a curmudgeon! The "get off my lawn" types amuse me. It's like "oh god gramps - just go back inside and watch your Mary Tyler Moore reruns!". I'm all for respecting of elders, but I think it's a two way street. It's one thing to not want to partake in something, it's another to try to not let anyone else either because of your antiquated viewpoint.

    That would certainly be a surprise move that would delight fans.

    I think it's more likely Vince Gill will be singing it, though, and Randy will not be joining them.

    Unless I've missed something....?

    I think it was a wishful thinking kind of joke. Randy joining to sing/play his song would be the only thing from the current band I'd be interested in looking at!

    [QUOTE=New Kid In Town;384440]Hi Groupie - how are you ?
    Wow, I am surprised with that news. I do not think Tim will do TALA - he said he would never sing any Randy songs. So, I guess that means Vince will sing it. Can you imagine how much thos tickets will cost.[
    [I paid over $400.00 And I am not even close to the stage.....but....I love 'emů.. what can I say. Might be my last time to see Don Henley and the Eagles...]
