Just an aficionado. Like most people in this thread I grew up on midwestern chili like you'll find at Wendy's & Frisch's. That is indeed a soup, but it's a far cry from chili in it's purest form.

If you've ever had a good bowl of Texas Red the beans question becomes silly. "Real" chili doesn't need a cheap filler (which is what beans are), they just steal space from the goodness.

The 'real' stuff is a bowl filled with chunks of chopped (not ground) beef & covered in a beautiful thick earthy sauce of fragrant dried chiles & cumin.

It is heavenly.

You don't sully that meal with a sandwich. You just grab a hunk of cornbread and some tortillas to soak up the delicious leftover sauce.

I put 'real' in parenthesis because like many peasant dishes chili adapts to it's local environment and covers a lot of territory, from a bowl of hearty Texas Red to New Mexico Chile Verde to Greek influenced Cincinnati chili to whatever California fusion concoction is currently in style. I'll eat them all and lick the spoon clean.

Uh, sure?

Listing two anecdotes is not support. You're just counting hits.

How many of 'these threads' have their been? How many have panned out? How many have been utter BS?

Until you're able to answer those questions it's nothing but confirmation bias.

It's time to stop bashing people for sharing what they hear.  You're free to ignore the thread and move on with your life.  We get it, you somehow think you're a better person for not condoning a rumor on the internet.  Well, you're not, so time to step down from your moral pulpit and come back to reality.

No, you're nowhere close to getting it.

Your claim was fallacious. Your little tantrum doesn't change that fact.

 As most of these rumors are true, I'm always interested in hearing them

Oh? Care to support that claim?

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.

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).
