Eagles- The Long Run
Wow, what a run! I wish I had the money to take the short drive up to Dallas to see them in the Super Bowl. It's been an unreal season for me with the Rangers going to the World Series and the Packers going to the Super Bowl in a span of 4 months. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that would be possible. Now bring the Lombardi Trophy back home, Pack!
This is the last studio record by the Eagles before they broke up. It should have remained that way. I listened to some of that new album, Long Road Out of Eden the other day, and it was horrible. This used to be my favorite Eagles record when I was younger because it was the first one of theirs I owned. It was actually one of the first CD's I ever owned. Led Zeppelin IV was the first in case you were wondering. It's still a really good record, but it's clear after listening to all these albums that Hotel California is their best album by far. Still though, I love Joe Walsh's "In The City", the title track, and of course Timothy B. Schmit's "I Can't Tell You Why" is still a helluva ballad. I've always been a big fan of "The Sad Cafe" too. I used to play that song religiously when I had it on CD.
I went crazy last night with the Felder book. I read about 120 pages and it has gotten really good. I don't know if anyone else that reads this blog has read it, but you can't help but like and pull for the guy while reading his story. As soon as I'm done typing here, I'm going to bury my nose back into it while I listen to at least the first lp of Eagles Live.
