Wow - What a great story, thanks Delilah. Bernie sure does seem like such a great guy. That tour backstage was sure a guitar lovers dream. Boy, would I have liked to do something like that.

Thank you, D. I take it from the article that Bernie is some kind of car enthusiast. We know so little about him that it's a major nugget of Leadon lore!

Can we also surmise that Bernie resides in the L.A. area, no longer Nashville?

Thanks for the link, Delilah. What a sweet story! Bernie seems like such a nice guy and Doug seems like such a cool pastor! I liked his words about grace and mercy.

You’re welcome, everyone!

This from Bernie’s ex Patti Davis back in Jan. 2016.

Quote:
In 1972 I was smitten with the Eagles’ first album. One night when I was looking at the photo of Bernie Leadon in the album insert, I told my roommate that I was going to meet him.Yeah, okay, she said, not terribly convinced. I was 20 years old, working nights in a restaurant and sharing an apartment with a friend who worked at the same place. About a week later I walked into a music store in Westwood to get some guitar strings and Bernie Leadon was standing right there. We went to the beach that day, went back to his house in Topanga, and ended up together for the next 4 years.

Things like that happened in the 70s. Things like that happen when you’re young and go where your heart’s desires take you. Bernie, and the rest of the band, were a bit older than I was but we were all young…then. We thought life was a wide open land with roads both taken and untaken, but roads that were there for our choosing. We thought each dawn would melt off whatever damage we’d done to ourselves the night before. We thought age and infirmities were inconveniences that wouldn’t visit us for so many decades they didn’t warrant any consideration. We thought there were no consequences to drugs and drama.
She goes on to say she and Bernie are “good” now and “comfortable” being friends.

Thanks for sharing that Delilah. It certainly makes you want to slow down and "smell the roses" so to speak.

If only it were always that easy to get a date with the guy of your dreams!
