    How The Eagles Influenced Me
    How The Eagles Influenced MeMusic has always had a big influence on me. Yes, this article was triggered by the recent passing of Glenn Frey, but, besides Fleetwood Mac and several other musicians, perhaps they epitomized the soundtrack to my life. Of course I was influenced by...

    I love that you explored Missoula for a little while, @Chas Wyatt. Isn't it cool to have songs that bring you back to certain times, places, and feelings in your life? Almost as strong as our sense of smell, music transcends the sound and shoots straight through the soul.

    Was a time when not a show went by in town without Hotel Californy being covered. Glen, Joe, Don...they formed such a formidable vocal trio...and were equally good solo too! Who can ever forget Boys Of Summer, Soul Searching, In the City...yet to see someone cover this one that good! Don said it all and sang it all...whether winging with the Eagles, or Duet-ing with Patti or plain solo. His pauses and fades were so pregnant with meaning of things said and unsaid. The First cut is the deepest by Rod is still a favourite...very much on the playlist!

    So frustrating that so many of us here in India will never ever get to see the hundreds of great bands and genres we grew up listening to...from the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Far East, Australia and such...Great to hear of your adventures, so close to our idols @Chas Wyatt!

    That was a pretty cool triple billing, Wow! Would have been great to have seen Rod Stewart in the 70's. I think the Eagles plays a huge part in the soundtrack of many of our lives. Great buzz @Chas Wyatt

    They have some great tunes. Desperado is one of my long time faves, Victim of Love, Wasted Time, and of course later out on solo - Boys of Summer.

    Some cool stories there, man! It's a beautiful thing to have a band's songs so inextricably linked to one's own journey.

    Nice tribute, @Chas Wyatt. The Eagles are certainly one of the all-time great American rock bands worthy of such sincere praise. Thanks for this fine piece, which I really enjoyed reading.

    The Gold Bike

    #1@Donna-Luisa Eversley, thank you for commenting. It is always a pleasure to hear your comments. I think I would've been better off if I had stuck with the 'Anne's' of my life, but, I was always attracted to the 'Nancie's'. ;-)

    @Chas Wyatt there is such a fluid glow when you write, it reminds me of my years during a similar period in time. We had few 'new unused ' clothes when I was growing up. My mom had to shop for four girls all we would shop at a 'jumble sale' run by the local girl guides.For Christmas and mid yer holidays, mom mom would sew us each a new dress or outfit, and a night dress. As the second child I always got 'hand me downs' from the clothes we had. I can smell your bakery and it reminds me of our local bakery ... memories ! I feel sorry for Anne, though I think I was a Nancy..hahaha!

    Berry Vines and Frostbite
    Berry Vines and FrostbiteI grew up in a logging town in a rural setting. Most of my circle of friends had dropped-out of school by their Junior year. I stuck it out and graduated, even though I had to take some night classes to get the few credits I was short of to reach...

    I'm reading this on a cold, grey, almost winter's afternoon in NSW having a cup of tea - my first break of the day. It's coming on towards evening and the fire hasn't quite caught, so though it''ll be warm soon, right now it's cooler than I like. I can't imagine working out in the elements, it would kill me, probably quite literally. Loved your story @Chas Wyatt, thanks for sharing!

    @Lisa Gallagher, Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I have touched other cultures and know that there are many that face challenges that I have just barely brushed against. When you walk in someone else's shoes, it gives you a different perspective of the world.

    Hard work you did there @Chas Wyatt! One summer my sister and I were determined to pick strawberries for extra money and we were excited about the idea that we were done by noon. Well, I'm ashamed to say, we lasted until 11am on the FIRST day and left to never return. I believe we made under 4.00 for 5 hours of work. I've always held high regard for migrant workers who come to the US to escape from less money in Mexico and labor long into the day doing what we did and much more. They live in homes that are not taken care of, don't have electricity and might be suitable for 2 people, yet whoever hires them puts 10-15 workers in these homes. I hope that they have a better tomorrow considering they are taken advantage of. I enjoyed your story because it reminds us all that what we do is not pre-determined and we never know what lies around the next corner. Thanks for sharing!

    Ouch! - "Cool wet grass" - I remember seeing a documentary about fire walking where the presenter took it upon himself to do just that whilst repeating the phrase "Cool wet grass". I am quite sure it is not as easy as it looks, especially for people who from birth live in cotton socks and leather shoes.
