From a very very good source... The Eagles will start a world tour late this year. This will happen right after the release of their new album. The tour is to last about 3 years and the schedule as I understand is 2 months on the road and then a 1 month break then 2 month on and 1 off and the story continues.

And then some of you will be happy to know, it'll be lights out at the Hotel California. Henley and Frey have said that they wanted to release one more album (they've been saying that for 14 years since "Hell Freezes Over") and a tour to support it. Henley apparently already has another solo album completed, waiting on the Eagles to take final flight, and then he'll be a full-time ombudsman and a part-time musician.

Re: the Eagles World Tour schedule. At their ages, I only hope they remember what happened to John Entwistle.......

Advancing Years + Being On The Road + Huge Amounts of Coke + Partying Hookers or Groupies = Death

(Mind you, there ARE worse ways to go!!!!)

The thing about that 1982 tour is, we were promised the "world" by the tour promoters. Unfortunately instead of the ‘world’, we got St Boniface, Manitoba, Red Deer, Alberta and Humboldt, MN. It did, as raspberrwine mentions, provide inspiration for a number of songs, including “Mr. Mountie's Lovely Molson Bandâ€, and our chart topping smash, “It’s Hard to Be Humble When You’re Humbled in Humboldt.â€

Raspberrywine I had totally forgotten about that "B" side. That song was recorded after a few too many dips into semi-frozen Lake Ontario. Glad that someone liked the song, 'cos we never took it very seriously. Since it's release, it's become a cult favourite, and we're often asked to play it at our shows. We're happy to oblige, although our days of dipping into Lake Ontario for inspiration are long gone.

Marv - You and the band may want to follow up on this, since somebody clearly owes you some sort of royalties....

"There's A Walleye on My Pole..." was used (most likely sans your approval) in at least two porno flicks here in the States. I don't remember the names of either, but both included dwarves, er, I mean little people, in the final orgy scenes (Napoleon in the first, Lil' Pimp Hand in the second and more recent one), although they were incorrectly (politically and otherwise) billed as "midgets" on the boxes/disks. Of course, this is all second hand information I've received from various colleagues, as, God forbid, I didn't rent them.....(or illegally copy them either!)

JohnO thanks for the tip. The band has been financially abused over the years, and it's been hard to keep track of who, what, where and when. We did enlist the help of an accounting firm to keep track of all the records, but it appears that $$ are still slipping through the cracks. Recently we found out that one of our other 'hits', "This Job Blows!", was in the running for a GM commercial involving a robot of some sort, but we lost out. That would have been some valued $$ in the Ad Hoc coffers, but this is another case of a missed chance - and that's the history of the band.

Never fear Marv. We're currently digging through the Doggone Good vault searching for all of the Adhoc outtakes and unreleased gems. I figure we have enough for an Anthology series. I'll make SURE you get all royalties coming to you! (you know you can always trust us record company owners!)

p.s. Had you not used the electric kazoo in "This Job Blows", it probably would have been picked for the GM commercial instead of that other guys tune. laugh

From the EAGLES website:

The long-awaited announcement from ILAA about the Eagles/Dixie Chicks is here. The bands will be participating in the historic opening of the Nokia Theatre LA Live! in Los Angeles. The first 2 dates listed are October 18th and 20th. Regular tickets go on sale Monday, August 13th and will cost $85 to $265.

Marlene I'm impressed with your purchase of "Feed the Fire." What convinced you to buy this?

I first saw the Eagles in 1972 in a high school in Montreal ("Take It Easy" had just been released), then again 1977 after "Hotel California" came out, then 1994 in Saratoga, NYK and Montreal, and then 2002 in Calgary. I would love to see them with the Chicks, but gotta save some money for their 'real' tour as well as for that Raspberries tour.

I've always loved Timothy's vocals, and happened to stumble upon his web page a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know he had done anything solo, but, WOW, did he EVER! happy

NOW, Marvin... tell me more about the "real" upcoming tour ! I haven't seen anything about it...!!

Mar I have all of Tim`s solo music, as well as his work with his previous band, Poco. He certainly is blessed with a beautiful voice.

The Eagles are apparently finishing up their long-awaited follow-up to "The Long Run" (it only took 27 years), it's tentatively titled "Hard Road Out of Eden." The two shows with the Dixie Chicks will likely preview some of the new material. The 'real' tour probably won't start until 2008 and it will likely be a long extended tour, right into 2009. I'm sure that they will come somewhere near you.

Every member of the Eagles has released at least one or two fine albums. The most consistent being Henley, in my opinion. Everything from 1980's "I Can't Stand Still" to his most recent, "Inside Job", is stellar. If you can locate Randy Meisner's albums from the 1970's/1980's, there's some fine Henley/Frey contributions on there.

I bought Meisners album when it came out, and even saw him live. Every tune on that album was great, but judging by the crowd that night, the most popular was "White Shoes". People were shouting out for it, and he kept laughing about it. When he finally went in to it, the place went nuts! lol
