FFS....current Petty tribute opened for a Bon Jovi tribute tonight. The bass player drank some IPAs and met a chick in the crowd, so now the band bus is stuck waiting for him to get his miserable ass back here so we can get f*ckin' home and go to bed. Thankfully, Bon Jovi tributes are not as bad as the real thing, but that isn't saying much.

This brings up a good question that might need another thread, or at least another poll:

Which is worse: Bon Jovi, the Eagles or lemon juice poured into 57 cuts on your leg from a rusty razor blade?

" The Eagles are coming to town, with Glenn Frey’s son Deacon taking his place    "


By Nicole Brodeur 


“Oh … OK,” Don Henley said, and then seemed to need a moment to gather his thoughts.

I had started our talk wanting to get the hard stuff out of the way: the loss of his friend and co-founder of The Eagles, Glenn Frey, who passed away in January of last year of pneumonia.

Henley and the band are preparing to tour without him for the first time since his death and will play Safeco Field on Sept. 30, with The Doobie Brothers co-headlining. They’re billing it as “The Classic Northwest.”

“It’s very strange to be on the road without him,” Henley began. “It’s just odd. I don’t know if I will ever get completely accustomed to it.”

But Henley has done the only thing he could do to keep Frey’s spirit alive, and to keep playing: He has asked Frey’s son Deacon to join The Eagles, playing and singing his father’s parts.

“It’s uncanny,” said Henley, the band’s drummer and an accomplished solo artist. “I feel Glenn’s spirit is very near. I look out from the drums to where Deacon is standing and his hair is exactly the same as his father’s was in 1976. He’s taller, but looking at him from the back there, it’s freaky.”

Deacon Frey is just 24, and had only played in front of about 150 people before walking out on stadium stages in front of 55,000.

“It’s extraordinary the way he was able to compose himself,” Henley said. “He decided that rather than living in his father’s shadow, he would pick up the torch and carry it forward.

“We are extremely proud of him, and we know his father would be.”

Things were fine between the two friends before Frey’s death, Henley said. They had just finished the “History of the Eagles” tour and each gone back home to their families.

Frey was working on plans to produce a musical-theater piece based on The Eagles’ catalog — the pivotal piece being the 1976’s 32 million seller, “Hotel California.” Frey, a native of Detroit, had visited the University of Michigan to try out some of the songs with a choral group.

“Just how the songs worked in a different context,” Henley said. “(Frey) was very keen to do that research and find out about the process. And then he got pneumonia.”

Frey was “tired and run down,” was all Henley wanted to say of his friend’s death.

On this day, Henley was home in Dallas, waiting on friends — “refugees” from Hurricane Irma in Florida. One daughter was walking around the house with pneumonia. Another had gotten in a car accident the night before. And did he mention he had just had his first grandchild? A boy.

So it will be a little hard for him to leave them all and tour.

He’s been working out with two trainers and a physical therapist three or four times a week, trying to get physically and mentally prepared.

“I just want to be the best I can be when I’m up there,” he said. “I don’t think people understand what it takes when you’re 70.”

Oh. I think they do. The bulk of Eagles fans are around Henley’s age, and then get younger from there, spanning decades and generations. The band started in 1971, broke up 10 years later and went back out on the road in 1994.

“We have lost some people who were on the front end of it,” he said of their longevity. “But there are still thousands and thousands of people out there who love these songs, which are the soundtrack of their lives.”

Still, he senses something more than singing coming back at him from the audience: Relief.

“These are such strange times we’re living in politically and culturally,” Henley said. “And I think people want something that’s familiar and reassuring up there. There are still, in a world that is seemingly reeling out of control, some things that are relatively constant.”

He still can’t believe The Eagles have lasted this long, and become one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records — 100 million in the U.S. alone.

Back in the day, Henley used to joke that The Eagles could fall apart at any time.

“Glenn and I both thought every day when we got up, having our coffee, ‘This will probably be the last day of this,’ because fame is fleeting for most people,” he said. “That’s why we wrote ‘New Kid in Town.’ You’re always going to be replaced.

“But we had an extraordinary run and I am still trying to get perspective on it,” he continued. “When I do pause to look back, it’s very dreamlike, and we’re grateful. People talk about getting in touch with your gratitude, and that’s been a present process for me in this last year and a half: to look back at all the unlikely intersections where paths crossed and things happened because of that, and there’s no figuring it out.

“I have tried to figure out why. Why us, and why not some other people?”

There’s no answer, and no need to do anything but get out there and play.

It helps that he will be out there with longtime members Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, country star Vince Gill and Deacon Frey.


“I don’t think I would have done it if he had not come on board,” he said of the younger Frey, who calls him “Uncle Don.”

Henley recalled seeing Deacon Frey sing “Peaceful, Easy Feeling” at his father’s memorial. (“He was so composed and so strong.”)

It didn’t occur to him to put the band back together until a few months later, when longtime manager Irving Azoff — who also manages The Doobies — suggested a joint tour.

“I said, ‘The only way I am willing to do this if is Deacon Frey will join the band,’ ” he said.

Henley spoke with Frey’s widow, Cindy, and then asked Deacon, who was surprised, but enthusiastic.

“I don’t think he was expecting it, but once it sank in, he was in,” Henley said, then got quiet again.


“It’s a strange mixture of grief and celebration,” he said. “We will never get over the loss of Glenn. But over time, you learn how to live with it.”

" Five reasons the Eagles may have already played the year’s best concert   "




" Joe Walsh and Vince Gill elevate band at Bankers Life Fieldhouse  "









" The Eagles, a band reimagined and rejuvenated in its 47th year, may turn out to be the biggest concert story of 2018.

With greetings of "Good morning" from Joe Walsh and "Howdy, Hoosiers" from Don Henley, the Eagles' 53-date tour kicked off Monday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The two-hour, 40-minute show presented countless musical reminders of Glenn Frey, the co-founding Eagle who died in January 2016.

But it wouldn't be accurate to describe the performance as a memorial for Frey, which seemed to be the spirit of eight concerts the band played last year.

On Monday, Henley mentioned his former partner when introducing "Best of My Love" — the Eagles' first No. 1 hit back in 1974.

And that was it, aside from Deacon Frey, Glenn's son, giving a heartfelt introduction to "Peaceful Easy Feeling": "Here's one my dad used to sing."

The big headlines on opening night belonged to Joe Walsh, an archetypal rock 'n' roll survivor who's rested and ready, and hired-gun vocalist-guitarist Vince Gill.

This duo will put a charge in stadium crowds when the Eagles share bills with Jimmy Buffett, Chris Stapleton and James Taylor this summer.

Walsh summed it up nicely when revising a line from his 1978 classic "Life's Been Good": "I'm making records, my fans they can't wait. They write me emails, tell me Vince is great."

Check out five reasons the year in concerts can belong to the Eagles:

1. The legacy
Deacon Frey is a singer-guitarist in his mid-20s who had limited experience playing in public before last summer. It's not reasonable to expect him to be an equal of Henley, Walsh and Gill, but this tour will give him ample chance to grow as a performer. For now, his defining trait is closed eyes when singing "Take It Easy," "How Long," "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone." Monday's audience heard a snippet of Deacon replicating his father's natural vocal phrasing during "How Long," a J.D. Souther tune the Eagles played in the early and late stages of the Glenn Frey era. To Deacon's credit, he realizes he's among friends. "Keep that energy coming," he told the packed house. "It's helping me out."

2. Super-sized show
Indianapolis was treated to 28 songs from the Eagles, an expanded program when compared to the standard 23 tunes performed in 2017. Rarities included Gill's rendition of "Ol' '55," a Tom Waits song adopted by the Eagles (the B-side to the "Best of My Love" single, for trivia buffs). According to online concert database Setlist.fm, the band last played "Ol' '55" in 1999. Setlist.fm also reports 16 years passed between the last live version of "Victim of Love" and Monday's. A five-member horn section added cinematic accents to "Witchy Woman," and the horn arrangement on "Funk #49" was as intricate and advanced as anything you'll catch at a rock show.

3. Vince Gill
This 21-time Grammy Award winner and Country Music Hall of Famer mentioned his "hillbilly" roots during Monday's show. It's difficult to imagine a better fit for the band that made country-rock a mainstream sensation in the '70s. Gill covered Timothy B. Schmit's "I Can't Tell You Why" for Nashville compilation "Common Thread" in 1993. Schmit handled that tune himself Monday, but Gill supplied a goosebumps moment when singing the high notes of "Take It to the Limit" — a 1975 Eagles smash originally sung by former bass player Randy Meisner. Another Gill highlight arrived when he sang "Lyin' Eyes," one of the best theater-of-the-mind songs from the pre-MTV days.

4. Guitar brigade
With Walsh, Gill and Steuart Smith (who succeeded Don Felder in the band's live lineup in 2001) onstage, you're guaranteed a parade of beautiful guitars played by masters. Walsh combines brute force and a can't-miss element of joy in his technique. Smith, meanwhile, is a chameleon who's skilled at seemingly all styles and tones. On "Those Shoes," Walsh and Smith executed a rarely seen "talk box" duel in which the guitarists modified their sound using their mouths and plastic tubes. Gill traded acoustic licks with Smith on show-opener "Seven Bridges Road," and he picked staccato Telecaster notes in tandem with Walsh on "Take It Easy."

5. The vets
Henley, Walsh and Schmit are each 70 years old (but that doesn't mean Walsh is too old to wear black leather pants onstage). For uninhibited performances of "Rocky Mountain Way," "Walk Away" and "In the City," Walsh is worthy of "national treasure" status. It wouldn't be an Eagles show without Schmit singing "I Can't Tell You Why," and he dotes on fans more than any other member of the band. Henley stumbled out of the gate with a shaky rendition of "One of These Nights," and he took a breather or two when Walsh had the spotlight. But he flexed his underappreciated soul-man vocals on "Witchy Woman." And Henley appropriately had the last word of the evening when singing get-your-life-right anthem "Desperado."

The songs
The Eagles showcased material ranging from their debut 1972 album (“Take It Easy,” “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling”) to the band’s last studio recording, 2007’s “Long Road Out of Eden” (“How Long” and “I Don’t Want to Hear Any More”).

" EAGLES ROCK CAMPING WORLD STADIUM  "




Eagles / Jimmy Buffett Show Review


" I have a policy these days that if a band does not approve me for press credentials, I don’t cover them on the blog. But, it’s my blog and I’m allowed to break the rules. And, last night was a show that just begged for an exception .

I was a casual fan, and had never seen the Eagles.  With all of the recent deaths in the rock universe, I figure it was time to check out their live show.

Before the show one of our friends asked if I was going to review the show, and I answered “Probably not, unless something special happens.” I did absolutely no prep work, and took no notes, nor photos, but something special did indeed happen.

But, let me start with something that was not special. Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. Buffett and crew sounded mediocre, generally looked ill-prepared and were kind of going through the motions. They were having fun, but their set list was generally the same as always, and their sound and show just doesn’t translate well for rock fans. Buffett is perfectly fine for an arena or amphitheater show where everyone is drunk and just looking for a reason to stumble around the arena – and as someone who has done that once or twice, there is nothing wrong with that – but it did not work at Camping World Stadium.

Things got much better when the Eagles slipped onto the dark stage and started the first sweet notes of “Seven Bridges Road.” At first I thought it was a little odd starting with a cover, but it worked out perfectly and set the stage for a fantastic night of music. The song is built around five-part harmonies and the band pulled it off masterfully. The pristine harmonies were a constant theme all night.

Immediately after it finished, Don Henley introduced the young guy on the stage: “Glenn’s son Deacon,” and they kicked into “Take It Easy,” and the kid sounded pretty damn good. Deacon Frey took lead vocal responsibilities on a few other songs, and after quickly addressing the crowd with a heartfelt thank you, he offered, “This is one of my dad’s songs,” and kicked into “Already Gone.”

The other new kid in town was Vince Gill who delivered near perfect renditions of “Take It to the Limit” and “Tequila Sunrise” early in the set. He later mentioned that he was a 61 year-old kid living a dream just before playing “New Kid In Town.” Some drunk woman kept screaming “he has the voice of an angel.” She was loud, but it was hard to argue with her… Gill also helped expand the set list diversity a bit by throwing in one of his country songs, “Next Big Thing.”

Henley mentioned early in the evening that they would be playing for two and a half hours “because we can.” And along with Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit, the trio of 70 year-old rockers delivered all night long. Schmit had his foot in a cast propped up in front of him the entire show, but was solid all night, and delivered a few priceless lead vocals.


Henley spent the night rotating through his drum kit, a percussion riser and an acoustic guitar and shined frequently. He was affable and likable, and his vocals are still quite good. He also shared a few poignant Glenn Frey stories, including one about his old ’55 Chevy, before the band offered up a cover of Tom Waits’ “Ol’ 55.”

For the first 90 minutes of the show, the perfectly constructed set list (see below) was generally more mellow, acoustic stuff that had the crowd singing along frequently. Up to that point, Joe Walsh was kind of a bit player, but damn did that change over the last hour, and the energy and volume kicked up a few notches, as well.

Over the last ten or so songs, Walsh spent the majority of the time in the spotlight. Speaking to the crowd, his words are damn near incomprehensible, but it was obvious he was in rare form. His vocals are not what they once were, but at 70, he sounded great. And, the dude can still play guitar. With 40 minutes left, there were only about 4 Eagles hits the band had yet to play and I was wondering how they’d get to 2 1/2 hours. The answer… dig into Walsh’s catalog. They added four of his songs into their closing sequence, including scorching versions of James Gang’s “Walk Away” and “Funk 49.” Priceless.

They closed their set with “Life in the Fast Lane” and then encored with a near-perfect version of “Hotel California” where the dual guitar solos from Walsh and touring guitarist Steuart Smith was mesmerizing.  Smith delivered pristine guitar work all night and was a nice surprise. The band came out for a 2nd encore where they dished out a raucous “Rocky Mountain Way” before sending the fully-satiated fans into the cool Orlando night with a beautiful version of “Desparado.”

We had $100 seats up in the Orlando International flight path, but it was worth every cent.  A legendary band delivering an epic show with a little help from their friends. I’d go again, but might skip the opener next time…
