    OT: I remember an interview with Artimus, many years ago, where he talked about having survivor’s guilt. He helped some of his fellow band members out of the wreckage and possibly saved their lives. He said they would tell him for years afterward, “We love you Artimus, you’re our brother.” So I wonder what happened that they don’t like him now? EDIT: after reading his Wikipedia page, apparently the falling out has to do with Pyle’s participation in a low-budget film about the plane crash, which violated an agreement the survivors had.

    Watch this. It features Gary, Billy, and the split with Artimus.



    It had to do with the fact he was an outsider (completely different beliefs), and also that he called Billy Powell a liar when retelling his story of Cassie Gaines' death at the crash site on the Behind The Music special.

    I'll follow up on it in the music section and create a LS thread.

I loved "Take It Easy" as a closer, but I would've also loved "Already Gone" had they chosen that.

    As for album closers, I like pretty much all of them, but the "Doolin' Dalton/Desperado" closer is just brilliant.
    Thanks scottside, it’s so cool you remember these (or maybe took notes, which I wish I would have done when I was young). There was a bootleg concert from Boston (?) that I thought ended with “Tryin” but it’s been so long since I heard it, I wasn’t sure. And unfortunately I didn’t download the audio.

    Scottside is an extremely lucky man. He saw the Eagles perform “Try and Love Again” and also saw the Capitol Theatre show.

    And thank you Austin for the Skynyd info!

    Wow, that documentary was fascinating. Makes the Eagles infighting seem like nothing. And Jake Tapper! Had no idea he was a VH1 news person. Now he’s in the big leagues.

    To clarify, this was his pre-CNN days. This is when the pianist Billy Powell was also still alive. Probably early 2000s footage.

    According to a 2017 article I read, the band members have disavowed the 2002 Jake Tapper documentary. Gary said it made them seem like they were all mad at each other.

    Sorry to digress, ya’ll. Back to the Eagles.

    OT: one of Henley's finest vocal performances too, IMO.
    Thats cool, NMB (and I agree about Henley) but did you cast a vote in the poll? The Last Resort is still showing 0 votes.

    We do polls so rarely around here, a few folks may have missed it. I know I almost did!
