Happy Birthday, New Kid in Town! Such a great, unusual song, beautifully sung to perfection!
How can it be 41 years old?

I am told that Joe Walsh joined the Eagles on this date in 1975, taking the place of a fed-up Bernie.

Yep, he joined Dec.20, 1975, which was the same day Irving put out a statement saying Bernie had quit the band. I know some disagree, but I think it was the best move Joe made.

One of my top three favorite Eagles songs. I think it is Glenn's best performance. A Grammy winner too.

Definitely a top 3 for me as well. I think that was their best song vocally. The harmonies are just stunning and this was truly a 5 part harmony song you can hear Felder well in the outro. Adore this song

I wondered why I'd seen photos of him all kitted out in his softball gear. Do you know if other members of Chicago participated? There are photos of them in athletic clothes holding bats - maybe they had their own team

I only know about Peter being on the Eagles team. I think I remembered their was another guy from outside of the Eagles circle, but I can't remember who. I think the team consist of the Eagles, their road crew, Peter and another guy.

I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

I thought the Eagles V Rolling Stone took place in May 1978?

Correct, it was in May 1978 on the campus of USC.
Shun - I think the other guy who was a non-connected Eagle was the then LA Kings Hockey player Gene Carr.
