The History of The Eagles: The guys still got it

IMG_5127-0.JPGMonday Avery and I saw the Eagles, a band formed 40 years ago, perform at the Tacoma Dome.

The guys still have it after all these years. Of course they aren’t as good vocally as they were in the 70’s, but still they can sing and play amazingly well.

Audio/video from the show, plus some especially great YouTube videos when The Eages were at the top of their game below.

Song Mashup

Two Performances from 1977

Today I took to YouTube to watch some vintage Eagles performances, and here are two of my favorites.

Take It to The Limit

Take note of original bassist Randy Meisner’s crazy vocals at the 4:17 mark

One of These Nights

Don Felder’s guitar solo at the 2:07 mark

Don Henley’s amazing falsetto at the 3:24 mark

 

Creativity Advice from Wilco

The following lyrics are from the song “What Light” by Wilco and are a great to keep in mind for those of us going through ANY creative process.

Listen to the song here on Spotify

If you feel like singing a song

And you want other people to sing along

Just sing what you feel

Don’t let anyone say it’s wrong

 

And if you’re trying to paint a picture

But you’re not sure which colors belong

Just paint what you see

Don’t let anyone say it’s wrong

 

And if you’re strung out like a kite

Or stung awake in the night

It’s alright to be frightened

 

And if the whole world’s singing your songs

And all of your paintings have been hung

Just remember what was yours is everyone’s from now on

 

And that’s not wrong or right

But you can struggle with it all you like

You’ll only get uptight
