    Looks good - I'm only interested in their original story, not them getting back together again. All those old songs remind me of being a little kid cassette-taping shit on the radio.

    Dave Grohl's movie Sound City was pretty good, too - my favorite parts were the old footage of Fleetwood Mac, and some of their stories about recording at the studio.

    Every time I see one of my favorite bands announce a concert tour and then notice the 150.00 tickets, I just give a quick nod of thanks to The Eagles. They started that shit back in 1994... and that was well before internet piracy started killing record sales. Those cocksuckers were just fucking greedy. Fuck Don Henley and his greasy ponytail. Fuck Glen Frey for being a partner with Henley. Oh, and fuck both of them for making me hate Joe Walsh after he joined up with them.

    Mojo Nixon's thoughts on the Eagles being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

    It's nothing but Rock and Roll Hall of Lame

    The Eagles? The Eagles! Who are you kidding?
    These putrid pop pukes belong in the Whore Hall of Fame
    You think Otis Redding is gonna be happy seeing The Eagles?
    He's gonna kick Glenn Frey's ass![/TD]

    in the late 70s, early 80s concert tickets were $15, and kids could afford to the shows without having to sell their cars

    The great thing about this documentary is the greed, drugs, women and the fights are all exposed. Joe Walsh was so fucked up on drugs he would be dead today if they did not get back together and force him to sober up.

    Its not like Mojo Nixon's setting the world on fire is it? And I don't think Otis Redding is holding his breath to meet Mojo in the great beyond ... and Fuck Otis Redding anyway.

    Thought it was good. It also confirmed what Don Felder said in his book (and on the show). Henly and Frey come off as arrogant assholes.
    Definitely worth the watch.

    Well, if some high falutin music critic like you has heard of Mojo Nixon then he must have done something right.

    from Don Henely Must Die:

    I'm only kidding
    Can't you tell?
    I love his sensitive music
    Idiot poetry, swell
    You and your kind
    Are killing rock and roll
    It's not because you are O L D
    It's cause you ain't got no soul!

    I didn't catch the Showtime doc.

    This is an interesting BBC doc. It gets Eagley around the one hour mark.

    One of the most talented groups ever. Best selling album in history. The lyrics to their songs actually mean something, unlike the shit that is put out today. Hate all you want.

    I saw it and always thought it was Henley that was the asshole but it turns out it was Frey all along. But Henley does get an honorable mention for going along with Frey.

    The Eagles are great songwriters, but they're boring musicians I think. You can almost hear the drummer count.

    It was a great documentary.It was cool seeing a young Joe Walsh circa 1973 and a current Joe, Oooofa the aging process has not been kind to Joe.
