    That was rather big of Bernie to admit that Patti Davis pretty much wrote the song and that his contribution was primarily confined to the second verse. In Davis' book, she painted much the same picture (that it was her song) but I assumed it was wishful thinking/arrogance. Mea culpa!

    I've always thought the song was lovely.
    I got a kick out of that, LOL. These guys were a tough lot but at least Bernie recognizes the paradox.

    I like the song but Iíd prefer it be stripped down some.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    Thanks NMB. I'm glad to hear this was the shortest clip. At this rate, the interview will run every Friday until 2020!

    My My - This cracked me up ! It sure seems that way with the way he does/posts his interviews.
    Thanks NMB for posting.

    And the only Eagles song co-written (turns out largely written!) by a woman.

    Yeah - even though I would prefer that these clips be longer, they are still enjoyable and thanks again to NMB for her diligence in posting each link.

    I have to say though, I sure don't agree with Bernie's opinion about his and Glenn's vocal talents. They didn't achieve the level of success they did with just average or mediocre vocal skills. I appreciate his humility, but I think he greatly undersells their abilities.

    I think it has been said that in the early days Glenn had to work at it to sing in tune. If Bernie means that they weren't natural singers as much as Don and Randy, I sort of get it. But they did have a great tone, especially Glenn.

    John Beaudin posted on FB that a close friend of Randy told him that heíll make sure Randy hears this segment of the interview, where Bernie praises Meis and Henley as having the best voices in the band. I wonder if Bernie and Randy keep in touch.

    If I were to guess, Bernie and Randy probably havenít been in contact since the Fred Walecki benefit, other than Glennís memorial.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!
