I liked the Eagles back in the 1970s. In fact, I used to joke that transferring from a college in Vermont to one in Arizona was based in part on my desire to have my life be more like an Eagles song.
Still, I wouldn't argue that much of their music has stood the test of time.
There's a scene in "The Big Lebowski" where the Dude -- a huge CCR fan -- complains about a cab driver playing an Eagles disc. The driver thows him out of the cab. But I sort of understood where the Dude was coming from on that.
There's just something a bit phony about certain Eagles songs and, I suspect, about several of the guys in the band.
But, as I said, I used to like them. And I'm grateful for the hours of listening pleasure. So I might record this Showtime special and watch it sometime.
How about you? If you were a Showtime subscriber, would you check this out?
