Someone mentioned to us more than a month ago that CMT would be doing an Eagles special because they had so much great footage from the 60 Minutes interviews....over 6 hours! Now we have an airdate: CMT will show the special on February 11th at 9 PM EST.
The Great American Country (GAC) website has this handy feature that tells you approximately when a video will air. For example, I just noticed they're listing Busy Being Fabulous as airing around 1:26 PM Eastern time today. Try to catch it....the video looks great on the big screen.
Apparently, the Randy imposter is at it again. Mike let us know that he ran into him at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas.
A slew of news reports have mentioned Don as being one of the entertainers at a media event in France to launch the new QTrax music downloading service. This service says that it will have thousands of free songs available for download because they've got licensing deals with 4 of the major record labels. There's apparently some controversy because the service has launched and not all of the licensing deals are in place. We have no other information about why Don was there. It would be interesting to hear him talk about something like this and if he thinks its a viable alternative to illegal file-sharing and .99 cent downloads at iTunes.
We've long been frustrated by the fact that sometimes there's too much stuff here on the site and people don't get a chance to check it out. We're going to try to highlight some of the older or rarer things in our archives. If you look over on the right -----> each week we're going to list a video clip, audio interview and print piece. Take a watch or listen and then head over to Eagleland where we're discussing them.
This week, we're talking about "selling out", lip-synching, and band interviews in general. Join us, won't you (remember, we've made it even easier to register and post on Eagleland).
The Rocky Mountain News recently ran a feature about the legendary Caribou Ranch recording complex. Joe Walsh and Bill Szymczyk both offer comments about their experiences there. It's a great look back at an important piece of classic rock history. Thanks to Barbara, Betsy and Paul for the heads-up on this.
We've been having some problems with the email notification system on our forum. Because of that, some folks have been registering and havne't received their confirmation email. We've turned off the function that makes you wait for confirmation. So...you should be able to register and post right away.
We're having some great discussions about the upcoming tour, so feel free to come on over.
