Yes the whining of the pro-black uniform crowd for years was pretty funny.
The rotunda doesn't give Gene a kickback.
Congrats on becoming an Iowa fan.
I remember this getting a lot of airplay when it first came out.
I was lucky enough to see them when they were still at Antioch. I partied with them a good bit while I was in high school. Mia was just an awesome, awesome person. I still miss her to this day.
Birm has stated in the past that Haskins' mobility may be an issue with the staff.
Hotel is probably fourth or fifth on my list of Eagles songs. I'm particular fond of Seven Bridges, but I've always had a weakness for great harmonies (credit to Ian Matthews/Mike Nesmith for the original arrangement).
The recent cover by John Legend & The Roots re-awakened me to the stone cold awesomeness of the song.
Bruce was having trouble with his record label at the time and gave it to Patti. She made a few changes and he decided to give her a writing credit. He didn't have to do so, and it says a lot about what kind of a person he is.
Regardless of the primary writer, her performance ensured that the song will ALWAYS be hers (although I do like most of the other versions... Bruce, 10,000 Maniacs & Garbage/Marissa P).
Using a weak argument to grind an axe doesn't rain on anyone's parade.
Joan's recording of the song was a huge influence in the early 80's...not the 70's. Yes it rightfully belongs in the era in which it had a cultural impact.
Just like many recordings by Zeppelin, Clapton, the Allman Brothers & countless others belong in the 60's & 70's rather than the 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's when they were actually written.
