THE EAGLES ARE BACK !
A year ago almost to the day, DON HENLEY confirmed that the Super Group were done following the death of co-founder Glenn Frey.
D.H. “I don’t think you’ll see us performing again…I think that was probably it,”
Henley said to BBC 2 Radio, but THE EWAGLES re-formed last December 2016, for their Kennedy Center induction, and that was supposed to be it.
But now, their superstar manager IRVING AZOFF is reportedly putting together two mega shows, in LA and NY, for the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.
Yes, Fleetwood Mac, another group that was supposedly done !.
AZOFF has no doubt had his eye on creating his own “Desert Trip,” the mega concert last fall in Indio, California aka Old Chella.
Azoff is the only one who could mount such a thing, and I’m sure he’s got some other ideas for these JULY 2017 shows as reported by the L.A. Times.
The shows would be at Dodger Stadium one weekend, and Citi Field in NY the next.
AZOFF could add Sting and Earth, Wind & Fire, maybe Steely Dan, and knock out Desert Trip’s October plans. Very clever, ISN’T HE ? .
I don’t begrudge THE EAGLES anything, plenty of groups like The Who, The Rolling Stones, Lynner Skynner, and even Sir Paul McCarthy with Wings after the loss of his wife Linda, … have gone on playing after deaths of founding members. But this EAGLES EPIPHANY didn’t take long, did it ?
We’ll just have to take it easy.
I myself saw DON HENLEY with a very sad band playing on ELLEN DEGENERES TV show on Vermont Channel 5. His words made me very sad, as he could have continued being playing with an EAGLE PLAN 2 , but probably that line-up didn’t work all his ideas out.
HE was promoting a new album and made gifts of tickets and CDs @ DeGeneres TV show. But again, the musicians had good chops, but they were not ready yet, for HENLEY’s commitment, it was like playing under the shadows of EAGLES, I think.
If they had chosen using EAGLES as their name, they would have moved forward better and more comfortable, and success could have aroused sooner.
As Mr. Roger Friedman reported yesterday, we FANS and DJ Hosts have to take it easy, tenemos que cogerlo suave. Same thing said STING about THE POLICE, and he used his former partners when he needed them, both are still in obscurity, he’s the only one who shines.
So, my friends, expect more about EAGLES and FLEETWOOD MAC for this coming Summer 2017 in NY and LA.
Why some musicians considered EAGLES the worst Rock Band of all times ?
Coming soon, also a few lines about guitarist JOHN WALSH the most respected EAGLES ever ! His SOLOS made the Hits !
