    That's fascinating. I didn't realize that he'd had such a problem with alcohol, but I did suspect that his willingness to take responsibility for his part in whatever conflicts arose during the time he was in the band was something that Glenn respected a great deal, and that it facilitated his invitation to play on the HOTE tour.

    I am so glad he came back for the tour. It made it extra special.

    Sounds to me like Bernie felt like some of us here, no Glenn=no Eagles!

    In this week's installment, the Bernmeister talks about the special sound of the original 4 Eagles, and why (sonically) he preferred the 4-piece to the 5-piece and especially the 10-piece HOTE band.

    Have a lovely October weekend, everyone. It's still very hot 'n humid in my neck o' the woods, but at least in my mind I'm walking in the chilly woods with colorful leaves at my feet.

    Wow - I hadn't really thought about how much of a transition it must have been for Bernie on the HOTE tour since he wasn't along for the ride all those years that it took the band to evolve into their live show for that tour. I think we just kinda sometimes take for granted that a musician can pick right up where he left off, but, obviously, there's a lot more to it than we think about.

    Thanks for posting that NMB - I plan to listen to it later when I have more time. Well, the weather is FINALLY fall temps. Today is 62 and nice and tomorrow is supposed to be 70. The leaves have not turned yet here.

    It's still 80s and even hitting 90 today where I am. Fall weather, come!

    That must have been mind-blowing for Bernie, to have all those musicians backing him. I'm with him, though. There's something really pure and just "right" about that original four-piece sound.

    How funny is it hearing him call Timothy "Schmit"? Nobody does that. But that's the way Bernie rolls. I love this guy.

    Site note: We corrected him about bernieleadononline.com not being official but now he's directing people to bernieleadon.com... which doesn't exist. Sigh.

    I'm with him on the sound of the original four vs five. There's a thread on the Border where someone posted links to two bootlegs, one from November 73 and one from May 74. The setlist is very similar (except the earlier one as a couple of "lost" songs from the London "On the Border" album). I find the extra guitar fills on the later one a bit "fussy". In later songs, they would have sounded "right" because that's what we've always heard, but in the early songs they sounded superfluous.

    This week's segment is quite brief, just under 3 minutes, but Bernie talks about the best-selling albums of all time. I'm mildly surprised to hear that he knows (in general terms) the sales figures for the competition - he doesn't seem like the sort to keep track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8Mtu35BvPg

    Yeah, it was a bit surprising.

    TBH - it doesn't surprise me that Bernie would be informed about this stuff - it's called 'royalties'.
