    Default 'HI' FROM A LONGTIME EAGLES FAN!

    Hi Ė Iím Rick. Iím a long time Eagles fan who was lucky enough to see them in í71 when they were first testing the waters as a touring band. I live in Cincinnati with my wife Vicki. Saw the guys last night (with our grown son Rick) at U S Bank Arena and witnessed an amazing concert; just incredible.

    I work full time at a local publishing firm and am also a part time adjunct instructor at a state community college, teaching English Composition I and II and Technical Writing, and also Astronomy and Earth Sciences.

    By avocation Iím a ďsemi-professionalĒ musician playing solo and in bands. I (and my groups) play lots of Eagles, along with music by Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Fleetwood Mac and the like Ė all acoustic-oriented stuff. Iíve been playing for 43 years and still play with my first band all these years later. I get out about 6 to 8 times a month and love it.


    Here are some pics (I hope!) of that first band through the years. If you get a red "X" in the pic, right-click it and then click on "Show Picture."

    The first is from 1971 (I'm the guy with the glasses and muttonchop sideburns!)





    ...then 1983...





    ...then today. I've used that same guitar for 43 years. It has held up better than its owner!
