Default Re: Eagles.... 3.0

Walsh Fan 88.....I can only speak for the experiences in my own life and I am fairly certain that my pastor, my beautician, the cashier at the grocery store, the gas station attendant, some life long friends and even some family members---all people in the real world---don't care whether I like or approve of the current band. If acquaintances in your life care how you feel about the current band members then your situation is very different than mine. Just because you don't acknowledge or accept something doesn't change the fact that it still exists. I was born in the 50's and started voting in the 70's. On more than one occasion I have felt like I didn't have a president. I am currently very concerned for the US.

Perhaps, but you can forget that it exists and not acknowledge it. You can write it out of your memory. You can, for lack of a better word, pretend it doesn't exist. You can write your own history book, and if it makes you feel better, why not!

I feel like I have every right to say how I feel about the band now, and absolutely that can and likely might influence some people. If I can get through to one person, well, then it isn't a lost cause. I feel there is purpose to having this discussion. Otherwise, without this thread, it'd be all one sided. That's not cool.

I donít see why you need to pretend it doesnít exist. You oppose the new lineup. Thatís perfectly fine and you should say your opinion on it. But I donít think living a fantasy world is the answer. At least to me. I am sorry that the current situation has lead to you feeling this way

There is nothing wrong with being imaginative, and being more "in your head". I've always been that way. More imaginative than practical and more idealistic than logical, and it's served me well. I've always lived more in my head as it helps me to deal with things better than facing reality, which has proven to be troublesome for me when the going gets bad, I can retreat and live in my head in, perhaps as you say, a "fantasy world". It's more beautiful there, to be frank.

It's not the Eagles without Glenn Frey.

Notice that sentence does not say "It's not the Eagles without someone related to Glenn Frey."

Geez.
Iím afraid that my question got turned into something. I was asking had Glenn approved of them continuing with Deacon, how would you feel. I think you said that has been answered and I am sorry for being repetitive. My goal on here is to have a deeper understanding of your opinions so that i can understand your sentiment. Feel free to not answer it all you want. Many have said they donít care for me asking the question and although Iím dissapointed by that, this is your thread not mine and I have to respect that

I guess this is a iffy subject as itís so personal so Iíll just drop the issue. If thatís how you live then it makes sense for you to live that way with the 3.0 lineup. I might disagree but itís your life not mine

It's fine. Agree to disagree.

I'm very right brained, creative, and I think it's why I'm a musician. I'm a pretty sensitive person, introverted, yada yada yada. I'm more outspoken online (obviously ), but I'm much more reclusive and reserved in real life.

YEF - I think if you have read through this entire thread then you will see how we feel. I think these threads have long sense stated people's sentiments and opinions. This thread has been going on since March, which is unbelievable when you think that we are still talking/arguing over this nine months later. Just my opinion and two cents worth.

I understand NKIT. I do think that outside of newcomers, we should move past this thread. Iím guilty of some of this. I think a survivor game or just more conservation about the Eagles music would help.

Well, I think this might surprise you, but I agree. As I have said earlier today, I think everything that can be said has been said and nothing will change either groups mind. Just my opinion....
