    That's funny, too, because it is claimed that they picked up the chord changes while they were on a tour with Jethro Tull very early in their career, but Felder wasn't a member of the band yet.

    I just look at it as one more anecdote from an industry that is built upon exaggerations, myths, and drug-induced artificial memories. :lol:

    Puh-leez. Henley and Frey took his raw demo and turned it into a classic. Felder has never demonstrated the vision to think up the idea for a "Hotel California," much less execute it.

    Duluth Trading Co. has no problem. Henley will learn that you can't stop people from using common English words even if they make a connection to a person.

    Henley's trademark on his name applies only to the entertainment industry. And of course he didn't write or sing the song.

    For me, it's just one more reason to despise Henley and The Eagles. I wouldn't piss on the man if he were on fire.

    It's these things that make people want to make fun of you and diminish you these days. That's how they try to defeat you. Caring about things that aren't cars and money and sports aren't all that cool.

    I think that the shark jump started with One Of These Nights, On The Border was a great album.

    I'm sure you may have smelled it a time or two at a concert, perhaps an outdoor reggae festival...

    In Mexico spanish slang, colitas is "little tails", or in some areas "little buds".
    "Colitas de langosta enchiladas" are "Little Tail of Lobster Enchiladas, or little lobster tail enchiladas. However I'm sure the Eagles were not singing about little lobster tails.

    :lol: As it turns out, I just ordered 2 more pairs of their fire hose jeans this past morning, and I sure get it.

    Those things are tough! The only jeans that last on me. Got 1 standard 5 pocket jean design and 1 cargo type work pants! :lol: 110 bucks worth of britches, but they'll last me long time...

    Their Ads are full of cheesy jokes... It's their schtick.

    Their claim to fame is a long tailed T-Shirt to cover your butt crack which they advertise with an aghast housewife gasping in horror at the exposed butt-crack of a crouching plumber... :D

    I wouldn't say they jumped the shark but On The Border is my favorite Eagles album.

    Hating Don Henley is like hating hot dogs. You can spend a lot of effort on it and not make a dent in reality

    Hahahah ... But you must admit that creating a song or a solo is so much better than just writing it or making it up.:D

    Felder is obviously a "misunderstood genius" who at the same time pities himself and thinks very highly of himself. Makes me slightly uncomfortable listening to him. I guess I prefer Henley & Freye, thank you! At least they're just a couple of honest, talented a**holes.:oops:

    But Felder is a great guitar player - even almost as good as Steuart Smith. Well, maybe not quite, but still ... ;)

    Yup. Felder is a great guitar player, but it's obvious he doesn't have the creative vision. Henley and Frey are legendary a-holes, but they do.

    Yeah, because you hear "don" being used all the time.

    "Honey, don your coat. We're late."

    "Jimmy, I want you to don a sweater before you go outside."

    "Hmm, I think I'll don the grey suit today."

    What the hell? Are you guys Amish or something?
