This came up on Google Alerts also today. Is there a Timothy Mentions in the Press like some of the other guys? I figured I'd post it there since it's so small and don't want to start another new thread for it but don't see one. So I thought I'd go ahead and put it here then.

Wimbledon starts in less than a month.
That means The Best Thing Ever ó England is coming up, too.
And over the weekend, in the midst of my meditative trance brought on by the Eagles and Timothy B. Schmitís dead sexy fingers, I hit on the perfect insane prize for the winner.
Iím quite excited about it all.


Boy, have I ever been there done that!!! Don't really know what this is but sure got my attention!!

Why don't we change the title of the thread to "Timothy Mentions in the Press/Blogs"? Would work for me!

Thanks for the link....have to say I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. The vision of the Carrack/Timothy/Eagles encounter conjurs up something out of the Saturday morning cartoons -- too funny. Can't agree with the criticisms of Timothy's voice and delivery though. IT'S WHAT MAKES HIM SO EASY TO LOVE (AND HIS SMOKIN' HOT GOOD LOOKS DON'T HURT EITHER). We all know where our dedication lies!

Here's the part about Timothy...

I also received a call from Irving Azoff, who requested that I get in touch with Tim Schmit of the Eagles and become involved in his plans to record a solo album. Irving wanted me to go to Timís house and hear what he planned to record. I did know Tim from the Poco years, but I hadnít said three words to him during that period (Richie Furay was always the chatty one). I was a little anxious about calling a member of the Eagles and telling him Iíd like to come and hear the material he was preparing for his solo album (imagine if Irving had wanted me to do the same with Henley and FreyÖ).
As expected, every time I did manage to reach Tim, he gave me the dodge or told me this wasnít a good time, and for the first time in my professional life I learned what it was like to be considered the pesky jerk from the record company. I wanted to leave a message that said ďTim, Iím not a jerk Ė I actually have some understanding of the musical process,Ē but of course I never did; nor did I ever manage to hear one note of Timís music before I left the label. I had lunch in New York with Judy Collins, and had prepared for this by listening to her more recent albums. How was I to revive her career? To my ear, she was beginning to lose control of her pitch, and the only reason we were doing an album with her was because her contract required it. Elektra was actually in a similar position with many of artists whose careers had peaked some years earlier.

Yikes, harsh! I'm surprised Timothy would be so unreceptive towards someone Irving had recruited to help him.
