Appearing several times this month on Showtime.

And you thought your family was screwed up.

Has having dad be in charge of the band ever worked out?

Coming on Showtime — History of Eagles

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?
