Default Greetings from Colorado...

I'm the newest new kid in town, my name's Zach, been an Eagles fan since '94 (grew up in the '80s constantly listening to Don Henley's Building the Perfect Beast album though). Big fan of Joe's '70s solo work too.

It admittedly had been a little while since I last was in a big Eagles mood, and then the tragic loss of Glenn changed that.

Anyway, the important stuff:

My favorite Eagles album is Hotel California, of course. Much as I love the band, I think Hotel was the only truly great album they ever made. I still have a fondness for the others, particularly The Long Run, but there you are.

My favorite member? Toss up between Joe and Don. They had the best solo output, I feel.

And my favorite Eagles song is 'The Last Resort', also one of my favorite songs ever, period. A work of art, pure and simple.

Anyway, nice to be here on the Border, looking forward to discussing this band and their music.

Hello and welcome to The Border, hope you enjoy it on here!

Like yourself, I am a massive fan of The Last Resort and couldn't agree more with what you said about it. Hotel is also my favourite album (although Desperado comes close for me). I was absolutely delighted to hear it's on Don's current set list - I played it three times over to celebrate!
