Peaceful, easy feeling

The Eagles
Assisted Living Tour
(quote Glenn Frey)

I become more convinced all the time that I was born
in the totally wrong decade.
Not gonna lie...
I would have had an obsession with
 Timothy Schmit (far right)
 had I been a teenager in the 70's.

But seriously,
Mom got tickets to go see
The Eagles
 this past Saturday night
for Dad's Father's Day present.

And it was beyond super.

I wish I could say that our seats were this close...
but I didn't even get to take photo's because
you can't smuggle in a bulky DSLR camera.

Alas, the wonderful quality of a camera phone.

I really owe my love of good music to mostly Dad...and to Mom
(I'll give my operatic Phantom of the Opera moments to you, Mom).

I remember riding around in our super cool Pontiac Bonneville as a kid,
jamming out to The Eagles, Phil Collins, Chicago, James Taylor, etc. with Dad,
singing loudly to Hotel California,
taking a few extra laps around the cul-de-sac 
to make sure we heard the whole drum break-down in
 Phil Collin's In the Air.

I'd say Dad has pretty good taste...so thanks, Dad.

I'm really glad that Dad finally made it to see The Eagles.
And that I got to see real
Because they are
Definitely one of the best shows I've ever seen...
and they played for 3 1/2 hours. ahhhh.

Their coolness was not lost on me.

Just for kicks, here's a new song that they performed.
Check it out.

Waiting in the Weeds
The Eagles


  1. Nice! I have similar memories of riding around with my dad, listening to the same songs ~ except it was in a big blue pick-up truck! I bet that was a good show. I'd have to say the Chicago/Doobie Brothers concert I went to years ago was one of the best show ever. Have you seen them in concert?

  2. No!! They actually were here this past weekend too and I wanted to go so bad...but we chose to see The Eagles instead.

  3. Fun! I have amazing drum break-down memories from that song too!
