    A great point. That he never oversang. I hate oversinging; especially when people do covers and oversing to make them "their own".

    I agree, Chaim and King Walsh. I remember Glenn saying that he thought that the American Idol type shows promoted over- singing.
    It always bothers me when people think that when they hold a note a lot longer or sing a song more forcefully than the original artist on record did, that makes them the "better" singer. All songs do not call for drama, and the sentiment is sometimes lost in their "interpretation".

    FF - This is an interesting question that I don't recall being discussed before here. I'll have to give this some thought. If enough people want to weigh in on this, we can create a new thread in the Eagles forum.

    I agree with everyone re: Glenn not over-singing. He had such a versatile unique style and tone. I always thought his voice has such 'personality', which is probably the reason he is my favorite singer of all time.

    Dreamer--I think it would be a great thread
    . Besides the songs & Glenn's good looks, the one thing that attracted me to the Eagles when I was a teenager was Glenn's voice. It just melts my butter!!!

    thebagels- Not to be snarky & catty, but I don't think Richie Furay would have worked out in the band. I know him well, and although he is a nice guy & very talented, and I love him dearly, he is not easy to work with. He & Don Henley would have butted heads more times than you can imagine. There's a reason his bands never succeeded to the level of the Eagles, CSN, or even Poco.

    So right again FF and chaim. Itís irritating when people are carrying on and doing these vocal aerobatics that are unending. Itís so Unnecessary and definitely takes away from the song in most circumstances, in my opinion.

    We can start a new thread. FF - since it was your idea, do you want to start it or would like for me to do it?
