Mick Fleetwood/Eagle brain farts

New band name. Copyright and Trademarked Chiprocks1

Adding 'The' to the name so as not to confuse with any other existing bands with the same name. Thanks dude!!!!

History Of The Eagles




I finally got to check out this 2 part, 4 hour documentary about The Eagles and it was worth the time I put in to watch it from start to finish. I've always dug the bands sound and there are a few songs that will always be a part of my childhood memory because they have been on the air one way or another since their inception. But I'm not a die-hard fan like Mac is. This is HIS band and I understand why that is. I was more of a fan of their individual solo stuff more than the band, so I never really delved into their backstory with any great depth. This doc pretty much covers everything you will ever need to know. I'm sure there are other documentaries out there about the band, but I think it's safe to say this is THE definitive doc. Very interesting to see and hear how certain dynamics within the band shaped and destroyed relationships among themselves. The biggest and most enlightening to see play out was of course Glenn Frey and Don Felder's riff that could never be fully repaired. Even I was shocked to see how Glenn is still harboring animosity toward Don, especially the scene where he recounts the ultimatum he issued to Don's lawyer about signing on the dotted line or he was out of the band. As Mac pointed out, another great part of the doc dives into Joe Walsh and how he came to join the band and become the missing ingredient Henley and Frey were searching for. Fast 4 hours. Definitely worth checking out. Watching this doc was bittersweet because I was constantly reminded that Glenn is no longer around.

Hey, glad you enjoyed that. Documentaries are not typically entertaining. And folks, I think, either love or hate The Eagles  ;)

So a new thought, to me, is Frey and Henley, made some harsh decisions, an in hindsight for one of the most successful bands in history. But does being a$$holes necessary?

Bottom line, I still like their music, but find the men are dicks.

Not that you have alluded to it, but when the band got back together, I do think it was right that Frey and Henley deserved the lion's share of the money given the fact that they were putting their solo careers on ice when the Eagles reconvened. But that is naturally going to breed resentment and lead to the outcome that eventually befell Felder. So, I wouldn't say they are dicks because of that. Just smart business men that should be paid accordingly. I'm still trying to figure out why the Eagles are hated by so many people and loved by the other half. I've never understood why there is so much hate for them.

Maybe it's like The Monkees or Disco. You really don't hate it, but say you do.

Or maybe it's like Dylan or Jazz... You think you look cool by saying you like it.


I dunno, I enjoy all their stuff. Just solid in everything.
