I've been a fan of the Eagles forever and will be for the rest of my life. Their music is awesome. Their harmonizing is amazing. Their song-writing ability is the greatest. They strive for perfection on every track and achieve it each time. Any piece of music they put out, I will buy. Keep 'em coming! Can't wait for the new album.

All Eagle Music
You have all stayed in touch with your style, and even though I know your music has made you wealthy, you still sing what your audiences wanted to hear. Your music got the message out about taking care of the earth before it's too late. Bless you for not giving in to marketing and greed. You sang what you believed in and that's why you're still with us 30 years later. I know we're all getting older but I will be a fan until my time runs out.
Thank you for your dedication. Non music people have no idea how much practice, etc., etc., it takes for CD's and live shows
to remain at 3 hours. You are all truly amazing!
#37 - Susan Purcell - 09/16/2008 - 17:16
THIS SONG GIMME SUCH A LOVEELY FEELING.....I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG A LOT....ITS MUSIC IS SO DAZZLING.....AND THE PERFORMANCE OF EAGLES IS SKYROCKETING...NO WORDS ARE THERE TO PRAISE ......REALLY LOV LOV AND LOV THIS.......YAAAAH
#38 - Ur biggest fan... - 10/11/2008 - 03:12
MR. Music Lover
Being Steely dan is still my #1 band..being a jazz-rock guy. You are #2 and I see you have added a horn section. You guys are great its too bad what had to go on in the band as I am into the final chapters of Don Felders book. it all makes sense...Me I had a great Indonesian philosphy teacher that taught us about the ego. THE EGO can destroy you. Ha all you have to do is look at bands.. Too bad what a waste of creativity. But Fagen and Becker have grown and don't have that problem. Maybe one day the great Henley will get a clue..not only with the band but with some of his stupid eco crap. He should be helping us in Idaho to de-list the devasting wolves that have killed all of the moose and most of the elk. Ha like the God would read these blogs. Robert Idaho

We will be attending yor Detroit show in March. We just saw you in Charleston S.C. last friday and went to Boston to see you last July. This in addition to two times in 3 weeks in 03. Please...our favorite tune is never played in your concerts. If you can do it please consider playing "Get over it" in Detroit. It's a very appropriate tune for these times just as it was in 94.
Please do it in Detroit, we beg you

Just went to your concert at the Bank Atlantic Center in Florida. Fabulous, Fabulous, brought back a lot of memories.
#45 - Sandra Henchy - 01/28/2009 - 10:28
You gotta be kidding me
I love the Eagles. Been into them since the beginning, BUT REALLY, they have become super ripoffs.. their ticket prices are obscene. Screw them. Sure are a lot of tickets still
available everywhere. Reasonable artists of their stature sell out in less than 30 min.s
Tell ya somethin' ??

#54 - Robert - 05/17/2009 - 06:25
Seen them 4 times in England; Sheffield, Twickenham, 02 London, and Manchester, cost me and the missus a fortune over the years but worth every penny. I would sooner pay top dollar to see the Eagles anytime than pay a few bob to watch some of these modern day bands. The Eagles are perfection personified. There songs are timeless classics, Don, Glenn, Tim and Joe put together are awesome and the line up of back up musicians just make it complete. Long may you all live and keep touring. My missus says we must go over to California to see tham next time. Come on Guys!!!

The Eagles and Michael Jackson have the unique distinction of producing the number one and number two best selling albums
(depending on what record sales statistics are used) in the history of the world!
Proudly and happily America should always
revere these two music giants for their
world conquest in the music field!
