Eagles 5/23/10


To quote the Dude “Jesus man can you change the channel? Man c’mon, I had a rough night and I hate the fucking Eagles, man.” So I don’t exactly share the same view as the Dude but they are not my favorite band either. This is another band I absorbed by osmosis growing up and probably about as close to country music as I like. Any way you slice it they are a part of rock and roll history and I have respect for them as musicians. My favorite Eagles song is “Those Shoes” which unsurprisingly they did not play. They did however play quite a few songs from their respective solo catalogs, which I thought was cool since they had so much drama with each other in the past. They sounded identical to how they sound on the albums and all I kept thinking was that they were lip-syncing! Of course they weren’t but it just sounded too clean. The songs held up after all these years and so did their voices. Harmonies were off the charts at whatever age they were at the time of this show. I don’t remember at what point near the end we left but Ingrid, Larry, Christina, Kyle and I did leave a little early because Christina had homework to do. We went to leave but the minivan we came in courtesy of Enterprise Rent-A-Car where Kyle worked at the time would not move when he hit the gas pedal so he thought the transmission was blown. It turns out he was in neutral…
