Like the fans had any say in it. I have no idea what 'most fans would have preferred'.
I am also with Brooke on this one. I didn't expect Randy & have no idea what "most of the fans" were expecting or preferred. They did what they were going to do without asking for "the fans" opinion.

According to "The Long Run" book, Henley in particular had great loyalty to Tim and Felder. I'm sure that's not the only reason, but one can imagine that Henley's vote/wishes carry tremendous weight in band decisions.

The quotation is by Azoff & refers to the failed 1990 reunion:

'Tim & Felder desperately needed this to happen & Henley felt a great loyalty to them'.

That may be the case, but the first attempt at a reunion was vetoed by Frey. In 1994 it was only after Frey & Henley agreed to reform that the other three were approached.

Default Was Randy ever considered for the HFO tour?

Just wondering when the Eagles reunited in 94 any reports on if Randy was ever considered or asked to join the band again or was Timmy automatically invited?

I have never seen anything that suggests he was considered, so I'd say no. He left the band, Timothy didn't.

Well over a 14 break, lots of things can happen.

Glenn had reffered to HFO as a "resumption" meaning they were picking up the band where they had last left it in 1980.. with Don H, Glenn, Joe, Don F, and Timothy.

Yeah - I went ahead and merged the two threads.

During those 14 years Timothy was an in-demand musician and singer who performed on Don Henley's, Glenn Frey's, Joe Walsh's and Don Felder's projects - http://www.allmusic.com/artist/timot...604940/credits

The point being, they remained collaborators, and I assume friends, during the "break."

Randy didn't work with any of them, from what I can tell
