I'm afraid I thought it was 'Leedon' until I saw the Under the Covers documentary (and Train Leaves Here This Morning didn't lead (ha ha) me to think any differently). I worked out the pronunciation of 'Frey' reasonably quickly because I think I heard a radio interview around the time of Hotel California.

and I watched as the smoker passed it on/
and I laughed when the joker said, "Lead on"

As I've stated before, this lyric by Gene Clark must have been an inside joke to Bernie about about people mispronouncing his last name because quite frankly, it doesn't make a bit of sense to me otherwise.

And getting back to documentaries, the BBC's Hotel California: Byrds to the Eagles from 2007 is my favorite. Perhaps because it focuses on their early days and Bernie is interviewed extensively.

Perhaps the other meaning is "lead on, smoke it . .. "

so basically it sounds like the Eagles need to put out a documentary like the Beatles did. The Anthology dvds are great, it covers everything from the Beatles childhoods until Let It Be is realised in 1970. If the Eagles did that....it'd be amazing. They could interview past and current members and of course show clips from concerts, because they never did any music videos lol. I'd certainly buy it.

There are music videos for the following songs:

Hotel California
The Long Run
I Can't Tell You Why
In The City (but amazingly, not Heartache Tonight)
Hole In The World
How Long
Busy Being Fabulous

And really the BBC and Kirshner footage could be counted as 'music videos'.

There would have to be agreement on what could and could not be said and given recent events I can't see it happening.

I managed to catch that and it was... not good. The clips would have been nice except the picture quality was awful and I've seen better versions elsewhere (BBC 1973, Don Kirschner's etc). And the talking heads...
"Frey" and "Leadon" were consistently mispronounced, the information about the band was superficial and occasionally inaccurate and I didn't know who any of them were except for Barney Hoskyns. Considering it was supposed to be about a "greatest album", most of them seemed quite unenthusiastic.

I still watched it all the way through, so thanks for the heads up.
