"My Man" is magnificent, and one of the most moving Eagles songs, IMHO.

Whoops, guess my post didn't get transferred:
Mine is definitely Bernie. I just think he's unbelievably cool and is probably the most "different" Eagle. If there was ever any doubt, My Man just puts it over the top for me.

Well, you'll never guess who my favourite is!

But apart from that, I like the band as a whole too, they're good whoever is in the band.

Randy has been my favourite for 19 years now, can't see that changing anytime soon! Very talented man, fantastic singer and bass player (and a pretty good guitarist) and he's as sexy as hell too! What more could I ask for?

Randy is definently my favorite "ex-eagle!" LOVE "Take it to the Limit" and pretty much every other song he sang with them. I haven't heard any of his solo stuff, but I'm sure it's great, as he has a fabulous voice, imo!

I don't really know if I have a favourite, as I've only really been a die-hard fan more recently. I do like Take It To The Limit and My Man - the beauty of The Eagles has always been how they all have terrific voices in their different ways. Don F sounded good on Visions even though he didn' t consider himself a vocalist. I love that Bernie/Glenn banter on the BBC 1973 concert - Glenn was already establishing himself as the frontman way back then!

I like several of the songs Bernie sings lead on as well. As has already been mentioned, My Man is great. I also like Twenty One and Bitter Creek at lot.

Twenty-one is a fun song with great harmonies, and I love Bitter Creek as well. In fact, I adore the entire Desperado album.

I do too, Desperado was my favourite from the first time I heard it, and still is. I love Bitter Creek and Outlaw Man and all of them. I don't know if I could choose a favourite.

I like all the songs that Bernie sings, especially My Man.

Randy, Randy, Randy!! And not just because he's, like, five-alarm hot!!! He sings and plays well too! Seriously, I love his voice and I can't listen to an Eagles song (or anything for that matter) and hear the bass and not think of Randy! Even if it's not him playing!!! I really notice bass a lot more now that I've listened more intently to his stuff with and/or without the Eagles.

Oh yeah, that, and, did I mention it's because he's gorgeous???
