This page contains responses from the survey I used to have on this page.
Who is your favorite Eagles member and why?
Henley because he is one of the greatest storytellers of my
generation --Mary Davila
Schmit because he has a beautiful voice and he is very very
good looking --Sandra Taylor
Felder because he is the best guitarists EVER --Michael Adams
Henley because you gotta love his vocals --Kevin Neary
Walsh because he's a true individual, he's got a great sense of
humor, and his music speaks to me more than anyone else
Schmit because I love his voice...it is sweet and pure in a way.
Felder because he causes me to appreciate music even though I
have no musical knowledge or ability. He puts emotion
into his playing, and that I can understand.
Felder because if it wasn't for his genius, many classics would
not have been made. He is a SUPERB guitarist.
Glenn is the most musically apt of all the Eagles, and without a
doubt has the best voice of the group if not all of
Henley because he is a musical genius. He proves this in his
writing for the Eagles and in his solo work. He has an
incredible voice and has a great ear for music.
Henley because Don is one of the most talented songwriters that
I've ever had the pleasure to hear. --Billy David Williams
Glenn because I believe he was the most vital part of the Eagles.
Without his multi-talents and staright-forward personality,
the Eagles might not have gotten as far as they did with
the variety and composition of their music. --Jeff Felix
Felder. I saw the first show in 14 years at the Irvine Meadows
Amph. If you could have seen Don's face you would have known
that he was totally in his element. His smile could have lit
Los Angeles. Not to mention those infamous HC chords.
Henley because I think he presented the vision and the quality
songwriting that makes or breaks a band. The Eagles would
never have become what they are today if it wasn't for
Henley's expert songwriting and distinctive voice. --Andrew
Why do you like the Eagles?
I can relate to where their music comes from. We're all in the
same age group --(unknown)
The quality of their playing, as evidenced by this tour
They are very diverse: from country to hard rock --Nick Schindler
Their songs transcend time...they're just as fresh now as 20
years ago --Tom
They bring back the fondest memories of better days for me
Their songs are about real life --John Schoolfield
The Eagles always set my mind at ease when I listen to them. This
band is the most outstanding band ever assembled; there is
nothing better --Kyle Staebell
Their music is honest and more in tune to how I think than
anything else I listen to --Alissa Franck
I'm from before the video generation, when all you had was the
album jackets, lyrics, and your imagination.
Their music is fun, serious, and thought-provoking all at the same
time --L&M, from the FastLane
Their music is timeless. Right on into the 21st century,
generations of young people will be listening to the Eagles
and saying "This is great music". Many older people are
surprised that I like the Eagles. I don't think there will
ever be a band that will have such an impact and influence
on the music industry. --Mark Earl
The Eagles successfully capture the evolution of Southern
California living...during the 1970's in some of the best
soft and hard rock pieces...from that era. --Ian R.
They can do everything well, from the light country feel that was
found on their first three albums to the electricly-driven
rock of their later albums. --Ben Franz
Every one of their songs has kind of a meaning to it, just like the
Wasted Time letter on your page. I think they make the
best music I've ever heard. --Joseph S.
I love listening to the guitar parts in all their songs. I play
guitar and hope someday to be like Don Felder.
These guys are the best thing that ever happened to rock-n-roll,
let alone music. They had a sound all their own and
couldn't be classified with many other groups.
Their vocal harmony is like nothing I've ever heard before. Their
voices blend together so well that the feelings in every
lyric seem to come alive. --Tahirah AbuBakar
When I was sixteen and living in Paris for a year, desperately
homesick and too proud to admit it, I heard Hotel California
played for the first time in an Italian restaurant on the
Boulevard St. Michel, and was forever grateful to the Eagles
for getting me through a tough year. --Nora McKenna
Their country-rock sound, acoustically flavored, especially when they
incorporated the talents of Bernie. --Ron Ander
They have no fixed style, yet one can always recognize their work.
Their music makes me think of simpler times, when my parents were
younger, and life was still an adventure. --Alicia Manuel
The group's music is so broad. I like classic rock and a little
country and you get both with the Eagles. Desperado to Life
in the Fast Lane. There music is what the 70's were all
about to me. --Lee
