Default Hello from Canada

I'm a new Eagles fan. I discovered them about three years ago. Well, I was always aware this band existed LOL. I can even recall dancing in my room as a little girl to the Long Run album. Whenever I heard their songs on the radio, I always gave a listen.

So I've been doing my best to build up my Eagles collection. As for solo work, I have all of Timothy's, with the exception of Feed the Fire.

Right now my fave song is Last Good Time in Town. I've always enjoyed Joe Walsh's stuff, even when I didn't know it was him! One of my fave movies is the Warriors. I had no idea he sang the song at the end of the film until someone told me. Doh!

The Eagles played Winnipeg last year. I wanted to see them so bad, but unfortunately I couldn't get away (city is 4.5 hours from where I live). I'm hoping I'll have another opportunity.

Anyhoo, that's about it. I've been lurking here all morning, reading all the threads.

Welcome, Disco Strangler! You'll find there's another Tim fan here with a soft spot for that song! We also have several Canadians on the board. I was just in your lovely country last week seeing Glenn Frey in Niagara Falls... oh what a night!

Hope you like it here and stick around!

Hi DS! Welcome from me too! I was in Niagara Falls in Canada to see my favourite Eagle, Glenn's two solo shows along with Soda and the others as well. What a great time we had. Canada is lovely and I hope to get to see more of it next time I'm there.

Have fun posting. Timothy is my daughters favourite Eagle.

Welcome from the east coast of Canada! I was one of Niagara Falls gang as well. As you can tell, Glenn is my favorite Eagle. I hope you make it to an Eagles' or solo show sometime soon. It's such a fantastic experience!

Thank you for the welcomes, everyone. I'm still going through all the Timothy pictures . On dial-up it can be time consuming, but is very much worth it!
