    Great show...I can't help but think they saved Joe Walsh's life with their reunion.

    Good band with a ton of listenable songs when you're in the right mood

    Plus, I want to slap the crap out of those whirling dervish dancing chicks. Hot or not, please f**king stop.

    Stop being a *****. By all means, be disrespectful. They're a band. Not my mother.

    You talk about my mother, though....we're going to have words.

    Although she is a bit of pain though.

    What can I tell you? Of late, too many folks not appreciating my candor.

    Finally got to see it last night. Very well done, enjoy the sh1t out of it! I have more respect for Frey, not easy being a leader. Geffen made me laugh.

    I'd be into seeing some Chinamen auctioned off. Absolutely.

    Saw the last half of this. Never considered the Eagles "rock" - pop, maybe, but not rock.

    Never owned an Eagles album or song, and still don't, though I know the words to several of their songs. Good in moderation.

    Read today that they are bringing an original Eagle back for the current tour this Summer.

    I'd be shocked if it's Felder...too much bad blood.

    Not a major big deal if it's Leadon although I'd imagine he's the most likely one. He was mostly instrumental and background voice.

    Hope it's Meisner although he looks like he's around 85. Don't think he could hit those "Take it to the limit" notes.

    Which is the biggest shame, the bitter, the liberal or the cow?

    I did see that though. GREAT documentary... I more or less feel like Borgo does about The Eagles, but not the sacrilege he states about The Dead!
