    Yeah, he could do all kinds of guitar stuff and still get the adoratiom he needs so much.

    He could also move beyond Hotel California IMHO. The doubleneck guitar seems to be like a holy object to him now and he expects the audience to feel the same.

    Yeah I agree on him getting the adoration.

    I mean you know how I feel about Hotel California. It's the best song the Eagles ever did IMO, and certainly my favorite and it saved my life, but he clings to it like it's *his* creation and his only. That part I don't like. I mean he's taking credit for things that he has no business doing. Yes, he had the first impetus for the song. But there is nothing to say that if DH and GF hadn't worked their magic or done their work on it that it would have been in the same stratosphere as successful. I would bet my own money it wouldn't have been. I'm a guitar lover, and I don't think much about lyrics nor do I look for complexity there, but even *I* don't like instrumental music. And by clinging to HC so much, he devalues the other things he's done in the band and the other parts he's created. So he's not only doing a disservice to Eagles fans who know the truth, but to himself.

I've seen them a bunch, and maybe will again but I certainly will be looking at more 2021 live footage to decide if I feel like maybe I should end things on a good note and remember it how it was when I saw them last.

    That almost definitely is lipsynced. And he wasn't doing that when I saw them. Instead, he barreled through Keep On Loving You and Can't Fight This Feeling warts and all. I'm guessing his pride got hurt along the way and felt like the better thing to do is sing with tracks or lipsync to save face because most people wouldn't know any better (or so he thinks). Too proud to quit, too proud to sing in a lower key.
    Gotta give props to REO; they've started singing live again.

    The way they handled "I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might" is the way I wish more bands would rearrange songs when their singers' voices changes. They are lucky that Dave has a high voice and can handle Kevin's parts.
