Thanks everybody. Driving down to New Orleans tomorrow morning and sailing out tomorrow afternoon.

Talking heads, most of which had nothing to do with the band, made obvious statements like "It's very difficult to work with someone who you've broken up with." There was also a lot of inaccuracies.

I think we can expect more of the same for the Eagles episode.

It might be worth a watch just for the giggles; the Mac episode did fall under the heading of "Hilariously Bad."
I've seen a few things on the Reelz channel and they've all been trashy...tabloid TV at its worst. (Dirty Laundry always comes to mind when I'm watching it). The worst is these "autopsy" shows they do, trying to make celebrity deaths sound scandalous when they weren't - like George Harrison died of cancer, there is nothing scandalous there.

I might watch it anyway though, I can't resist anything Eagles-related.

I know a very rare piece that I have never seen discussed, maybe it has here but I'm new forgive me, and I've searched YouTube and no luck. It was on one of the evening news shows back in probably 80 and I distinctly recall seeing it as a 11 year old Eagles fan, yes I started early thanks to my bro and sis. 20/20, Primetime Live was it called or something like that. My first time ever seeing the boys on TV.

The segment was on music and politics and centered around Jerry Brown. I don't recall an interview with the Eagles but very vividly recall seeing a short onstage clip (probably from the LA shows) and backstage as the limos sped off and Felder standing up out of the sunroof of one. May have been wearing the jersey someone here has as an avatar.

That is about all I recall, I was a kid, but was amazed I finally saw my favorite band on TV. Wow how far we've come with the availability these days.

Does anyone here recall this? I would dearly love to see it again. I have never found any mention of it online.

LBE - I Love your chosen name - it cracks me up !
I have never heard of or seen the tv piece you are talking about. It could have been 20/20 or one of the other shows discussing Jerry Brown. I know he ran for President at least once but I can not remember the exact date and I am too lazy to look it up(sorry).

My My - lol ! Yes, the acting was terrible. I had never heard of or watched this station before and was not sure what to expect until I saw the preview posted on the Fastlane FB page. They said Glenn conceived and started the band and was the genius behind the bands success. Otherwise it made Don out to be the creative genius. Henry D. and Marc Eliott were interviewed as was Barney Hoskyns(the guy who wrote the book Hotel Calif.) They also gave credit to Don instead of Glenn for the idea about" the hotel in the distance" as part of the lyrics for HC. This is despite the fact the Don and Glenn have credited it to Glenn in numerous interviews. They had a psy. and another person evaluating/ giving their opinion on everything. I would say tape it - you can always tape over it if you don't like it.



Side Note - They had a show on Gram Parsons where they analyzed his autopsy and why he died. Also nothing we did not know before. But, they went into his crazy childhood and how that affected him as an adult.

Oh joy, another documentary that plays fast and loose with the facts.

Thanks NKIT, appreciate the feedback. I will keep my fingers crossed one day someone will tell the true story about the Eagles. They deserve nothing less.
