    The ORIGINAL version... Not the unplugged version

    Intriguing lyrics that take you on a mystic journey of the mind.... Beautiful melody that subconsciously compels you to hum or sing along ....

    A masterpiece, indeed

    While I certainly live for today, I've heard very little music since the mid to late 90's that compels me enough to call myself a fan of it

    great but radio over played it. Plus Don Felder wrote the music, and frey and henley basically did to him what Simmons and Stanley did to Criss and Frehley, making side deals to cut out a bonafide member of the group

    That's what everybody that enjoys shitting music says... I don't have the time or the compulsion to scour the nooks & crannies of the Globe for someone who can put together a few cool songs that don't have turntable scratching, beat sampling, or monotone-rhythmic rapping ... I like plain old Marshall Stack, high gain, simple Rock & Roll ..Its not easy to find good, original sounding simple Rock & Roll any more ...

    Yeah that was a shit thing to do... I paid about 2G's a few years ago for 3rd row center tickets at an Eagles concert, only to find out that they had shit-canned Felder a few weeks earlier... While I dug watching Joe Walsh do his thing from about 20 feet away, it just wasn't the same without him & Felder trading licks back & forth

    I don't think God has a whole lot of nice things to say about you, either...
