That is a practice which is fairly common I would say (the latter, I mean). In certain cases a band member having nothing to do with the writing of a song might receive credit as recompense for other reasons; it's sort of the same situation as someone else owning all or part of an artist's publishing. The industry in its various permutations has a core practice: external forces often dictate who ends up with the cash.

I so enjoy reading posts by those who know what they are talking about!

Yeah I'm still not sure whether knowing some of the inner workings of the industry is a good thing or a bad thing.

I don't think that HFO was in any way shape or form a "reunion tour" . It was the band reuniting & staying together. The HFO album & tour was the start of that. Berne & Randy were no longer in the band, & from what I understood had both"quit" the band a long time before the 1980 demise.

I don't think anyone expected them to appear since they were both replaced with new band members.

I'm pretty sure that Randy, rather than Timothy was the expected bassist for the Eagles reunion. The Long Run was the only previous Eagles album that Randy hadn't played on. He was the bassist on the two mega-selling Eagles albums. He even appeared on Greatest Hits II and Eagles Live that were released after he'd left.

It was a creditable decision to ask Tim first but I reckon most Eagles fans would have preferred a reunion of the Hotel California line up.

Didn't turn out too bad though

Glenn uses the word "resumption" to describe HFO.

Why would you think that? Timothy was already established as their bass player? Why skip over him and go back to someone who had quit? This boggles my mind that you would think this!

While I can see that a fan, without the resources we have these days for tracking the comings and goings of band members, might have expected Randy to return, I can't believe it was ever seriously considered by anyone associated with the band.

I don't believe we have any information that Randy was expected to be the bassist for HFO. Except maybe in his own mind he was hoping...
