Inspired by my good friend from the US and a genuine “good old Rock and Roller” John O’Leary, I decided to post a 7 minute video of my rock idols The Eagles on Simplicity Blog.
Hotel California has been described as one of the classic rock songs of all time.
Even if you are not an Eagles fan I hope you can find 7 minutes in your busy schedule to appreciate the genuine talent on display from these four oldies now 60 years old or approaching 60!
Don Henley – fabulous voice; drummer extraordinary; politically irreverent
Glen Frey – the brains behind The Eagles; founder of the band; best voice of the lot
Joe Walsh – absolute eccentric (some would say a nutter); best guitarist in rock history according to many
Timothy Schmidt – amazing voice; shame about the hair Tim
Annie and I will be seeing The Eagles at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham in July which will be the third time we have seen them in 4 years. Having waited almost 30 years to see them I am now making up for lost time. (Annie is very tolerant)
This video was filmed at a live conference in 2008
Not bad for a bunch of pensioners say I.
