    Too many of the great ones are reaching the "End of the Line." I don't mean that as a callous statement, but as a tribute to The Traveling Wilbury's. I didn't read the article because it is too much of a bummer right now.

    You left out Robert Zimmerman. Burton Cummings, Robbie Robertson, and Neil Young are still around but are Canadian, so semi qualify as North Americans.

    I would've thought a flaming liberal like you would love Don Henley. But then I remembered we've had this discussion before. Like I said then, I'm partial to musicians that can write a lot of their own songs, play their own instruments, and sing in harmony.

    I always found it amusing that they took a few shots at LA and CA in some of their music - Life in the Fast Lane, Hotel California, and King of Hollywood. I

    I
    Me too, but only when the music is good. I especially like it when they self produce and are original.

    If we are going to throw some Canadians in, you cannot leave out Gordon Lightfoot as most of his songs were recorded by American Artist.

    Here's one you may not know.

    When Don Felder --one of the former three main owners of Eagles Inc (along with Don Henley and Glenn Fry) and guitar player extraordinaire for The Eagles-- was a young man in Gainesville, FL, he taught guitar lessons to kids at a local guitar shop. One of his young students --about 14 yrs old at the time-- was Tom Petty.

    "The early-í70s was an important time for popular music. Recording technology was making great advances and musicians were making albums that embraced those opportunities and we got albums like Whatís Goiní On from Marvin Gaye, Dark Side of the Moon from Pink Floyd, and Alladin Sane from David Bowie. This is the era where all the Eaglesí hits came from, probably. Iím not actually sure because if I look it up I might fall into a coma. While Gaye and Bowie and Floyd were re-imagining the medium, Jim Henson and the Eagles had figured out a way to make an audio recording of an all-beige painting of a yawn."

    The penultimate paragraph sums up the Eagles very well.

    Being a huge Pink Floyd fan myself for over 40 years, I've probably forgotten more about Pink Floyd than you and this "Guest Writer" will ever know, combined.

    That said, the Eagles are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records—100 million in the U.S. alone—including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California. Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) was the best selling album of the 20th century. They are the fifth-highest-selling music act and the highest-selling American band in U.S. history.

    I realize that these are numbers that you and your little "Guest Writer" buddy can't fathom.....so we'll just leave it right there.

    Exactlly. Lowest common denominator rock. You don't sell that many records making music that advances the art. You do that by making music that doesn't offend anyone.
