Ladies and gentlemen

Listening to Steve Young's "Rock Salt and Nails" this evening and just wondering what the prevailing winds are concerning the Eagles. I personally have never stopped hating that insipid band, although the more music I listen to and the older I get, the less I completely despise them. After all, they did have sense enough to record good songs from time to time, like Young's "Seven Bridges Road", and Johnny Cash did do "Desperado" some justice.

Am I getting soft? After all…

There are way much more hateful things in this world. Like Hitler, pedophiles, the KKK, corridas de toros, the dry law, mexican politicians, Adam Sandler movies, SuperHeavy, gangsta rap, brats that throw tantrums in public spaces or Youtube ads.

I use to love to get to the set position  for Peaceful Easy Feelin, it was in my bands set list, perfect song to light up, have a drink and put it on auto pilot.
Other than that, IMO, they were a girls band,
and I never got very excited about them or their music. As a cover band in the 70's and 80's, we played eagles music to please the crowd. Peaceful Easy Feelin was a "Belly rubber" we had 4 of them one per set. It was a chance to come down, give everyone in the crowd a chance to visit the bar, visit the bathroom, etc.
By the way Beast Of Burden was 1 of the other 3. That one was "Not" a auto pilot song though. Very drum lead!

"   ..............   L'Wren Scott's sister slams Mick Jagger after he's spotted with mystery woman at Swiss hotel: 'He will never change'
Photos emerged of The Rolling Stones front man shacking up with a young brunette in a Zurich hotel last weekend — about three months after his longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, committed suicide. Her sister Jan Shane was outraged at the rocker for moving on so quickly: 'And people wonder why L’Wren was so depressed?'   "

Rush actually have musical talent. Some would argue that they have so much musical talent that their respective instrumentalists are the best in the business. Geddy Lee was often listed up there with Entwistle and Macca as being the best bassist in rock, and the same could be said for Peart.

Even if you don't like their music, or Geddy's "clothespin on the testicles" vocal range, you have to give it up for their musicianship.

I don't hate the Eagles. I just never think of them. Never consider them in my thoughts. But I tell you this. They are charging way more for their Aussie tour than the Stones are.

To repeat myself, the Eagles always seemed the band directly opposite to the Rolling Stones.  All the things that drew me to the Rolling Stones - inspiration, integrity, depth, soul, influences, talent, musicianship, knowledge, growth, sweat, actual good songs - the Eagles thing seems to be almost deliberately against all of that. 

My naive belief in joining these Rolling Stones boards, dedicated to a band that hasn't put a decent out in 30+ years, was that there was some discerning taste regarding rock music, based on what was and what is.  You were someone I could discuss music with, learn from.  That was true for the most part, and it happened in spades. 

So what is an Eagles fan doing here?   What don't you Eagles fans like? List that out.  What is the point of caring about rock music, if you are an Eagles fan?

You mean, by ripping off other acts. Charging ridiculously stupid amounts of money. Ripping off their fans blind? Then you are correct sir. These are YOUR Rolling Stones.

hate is a strong word, it means you care one way or the other.
I don't care so I don't hate, I just dont care. in the Kilroy casa, there are 2 albums for them eagles. 2 out of 1000's
They were bought to learn songs to perform.
I do kinda like James Dean!
and I like Joe Walsh stuff!

I was careful to insert the comment about no decent albums in 30 years, to limit my overall comment to the great characteristics of the Rolling Stones (best band ever?) in certain albums, and to avoid precisely your type of rebuttal post.  Yes, I know they are a ripoff act now, and have been for a long time.

If you feel that way in totality about the Rolling Stones (best band ever?) why have you been a regular for so long?  I'm not being demeaning, but sounds like you need an Eagles board.  It appears there are a lot of people here who could point you to one!

The Eagles, for fucking Christ's sakes.  There was a time this board would have been all over this.  Those days, like the Stones' best days, are moof.
