Remember, ‘every form of refuge has its price’

As a rule, I stay away from political commentary at the close of the business week Friday, but I want to dedicate this one to the “ethics reformers” in the Georgia Legislature:

“My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
You set it up so well, so carefully
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things
You’re still the same old girl you used to be.”

– Jay Bookman

Always hated the Eagles, sorry. Horrid corporate rock.

You want a song that sums up these lying sacks of crap?

That band had a unique way of making me feel really good and really bad at the same time. Funny, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes. And those sweet harmonies were some of the finest around.

From that same LP…

Lead vocal by Randy Meisner, lead guitar by Don Felder, ending dual guitar solos by Don Felder and Glenn Frey

Egos and politics of the members have very little sway over me when the talent and musicianship is so damn good. THIS is the power of the noise itself, it conquers everything else…

Jefferson, In 1974, Felder was called by the Eagles to add slide guitar to their song “Good Day in Hell”. The following day he was invited to join the band.

Left Kaneohe Bay for Maui about 6:00PM. Sailed the night through on a CSY 44 with 3 other guys Anchored off of the Kanapali coast in about 30ft of crystal blue water, about 50yds off of the Hilton. Insert Loggins and Messina tapes (no CDs at the time) into the boat stereo system. The CD that you noted was the prime piece of music on the trip. Just think how long it was before that boat was filled with numerous nubile young ladies off of the beach. Ah, four days of absolute bliss. The song brings back lots of memories.
