Edited so I don't get reported.
Joe Walsh was much cooler than the Eagles; but they were more successful than him to that point, so it seemed like a reasonable collaboration.
Does anyone know that Joe produced one of Dan Fogelberg's early albums Souvenirs (and played backup for vocals and instruments)? That was a killer album!
grew up with Eagles music and I liked some of the 'hits' but they never really registered on my radar screen. Then a couple of years ago I saw the "History of the Eagles" documentary and it got me interested and I took another listen to their music with different ears. Now I love their music.
Don Felder is an incredible musician. His book "Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles" was a very interesting read.
Great craftmaship, but they don’t tickle my pickle.
I was never really a fan - their music was a little too conventional for me at the time they were producing their hits. Then I saw the Hell
Freezes Over tour and was impressed with how tight and talented they were. I knew I would love seeing Joe Walsh, but Don Felder really blew me away.
Gawd, that EDS-1275 weighed 14 pounds....
A good Strat weighs 6.8.
My Paulownia Strat weighs 6.1, Tele weighs 5.7....
The Eagles are one of the greatest bands of all time - despite the "haters".
Danny is another who seems to be only widely known for his syrupy ballads, but he was much more than that. He was a great songwriter, singer, bandleader, and could play a mean electric guitar too. Another underappreciated great who we lost too soon. Listen to some of the tunes on the Captured Angel album for his great electric guitar work- These Days, Man in the Mirror/Below the Surface, The Last Nail, and The River from his first album, She Don't Look Back from the Exiles album. And Old Tennessee from Captured Angel is one of my many favorites of his acoustic tunes.
Agree 100%. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I have to admit that I find many of the comments in this thread... well, I have nothing good say about them so I won't say anything. For some reason the term "armchair" comes to mind.
I only saw them on the "Hotel California" tour. I agree wholeheartedly.
I saw them twice, in 1973 and 1975.
They were (unsurprisingly) great both times.
The first time they were just another hardworking, skilled band.
Witchy Woman was their current radio hit, and they looked and behaved like a bunch of friends playing their own songs.
They were a much bigger deal the next time.
I’m glad I saw them back then.
I can’t listen to them anymore.
I’ve just heard the songs way too many times.
