I'd forgotten that Bob Seger co-wrote "Heartache Tonight"; he showed up to sing it at the Kennedy Center Honors:

HEARTACHE TONIGHT
GLENN: …and then they sold 12 million records, and everything changed! As Bob Dylan said, “They deceived me into thinking I had something to protect.” And that’s what happened with us. We made it, and it ate us. The Long Run became, indeed, the long run. It was a difficult record to make overall, but I loved “Heartache Tonight.” Whenever Bob Seger was in L.A., he always used to come over and visit me, and he’d visit Don, too, and play us stuff he was working on — and we would do the same. I seem to remember that I had the verse thing going on for “Heartache Tonight,” and I was showing it to Seger, and we were jammin’ — I think we were jammin’ on electric guitars at LaFontaine — and then he blurted out the chorus. That’s how “Heartache” started. Then Bob disappeared, and J.D., Don, and I finished that song up. No heavy lyrics — the song is more of a romp — and that’s what it was intended to be.

One of the revelations from the solo listening thread was that away from Henley & Seger, Glen couldn't write a meat and potatoes rocker to save his ass.

In addition to the previously reported addition of Deacon Frey, who will step into the spot left vacant with the passing of his father Glenn, the group will be joined by veteran country artist Vince Gill. The Los Angeles Times reports that Gill will split vocal duties with the younger Frey on Glenn’s songs.

Eagles co-founder Don Henley, who earlier referred to Deacon’s entrance as a modern musical version of the old “guild system, where the father is the master and the son is the apprentice,” admitted that he viewed the group as finished after Glenn’s passing, but quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson while exercising his right to change his mind: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

Besides that photo above, also discovered that Henley is only the 4th richest drummer. Without looking, can you name the top 3?

I always wonder about the sources for lists like this. Is Grohl really richer than Larry Mullen, who's been doing megatours with the most popular live band in the world for decades and, due to the way they split songwriting credits, gets publishing royalties for every one of their songs?

Futuristic Bow Wow (thewufs), Thursday, 1 June 2017 23:07 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah, that struck me as odd, too. And surely Charlie Watts has more dough than Grohl?

The last sentence here is what might make this list so questionable: The figures contained in this list were acquired from all publicly available information including salaries, real estate holdings, divorces, record sales, royalties and endorsements. The final net worths come from a formula that takes out taxes, manager's fees, agents' fees, and lifestyle.

#1: Ringo Starr – $300 Million (The Beatles)
#2: Dave Grohl – $260 Million (Nirvana, Foo Fighters)
#3: Phil Collins – $250 Million (Solo, Genesis)
#4: Don Henley – $200 Million (The Eagles)
#5: Lars Ulrich – $200 Million (Metallica)
#6: Charlie Watts – $170 Million (The Rolling Stones)
#7: Roger Taylor – $170 Million (Queen)
#8: Larry Mullen Jr – $150 Million (U2)
#9: Joey Kramer – $100 Million (Aerosmith)
#10: Nick Mason – $100 Million (Pink Floyd)

Still baffled at Grohl's wealth, unless he's like some kind of secret slimeball real estate speculator or something. Or maybe he gets paid a bundle to be an HIV truther.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 2 June 2017 02:02 (one month ago) Permalink

He leads and writes all the songs for one of the most consistently popular rock bands for the last 20 years, and was also in a legacy band that has three or four popular catalog albums for starters.

to fly across the city and find Aerosmith's car (C. Grisso/McCain), Friday, 2 June 2017 02:30 (one month ago) Permalink

Sure, the Foo Fighters had a bunch of top 10 albums in the US, but only three top 40 hits. I dunno, that doesn't seem like enough to be second to Ringo. Do they really sell out tours? I always envisioned them playing 2/3rds-full mid-level arenas.

And does he have writing credit on Nirvana songs? Because I can't see him making more from Nirvana albums than Watts does from Stones records (though the shitty Klein deal likely means he makes a lot less than he should off the early stuff).

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 2 June 2017 02:44 (one month ago) Permalink

IIRC, he's included on some group compositions, but his real Nirvana money comes from sales royalties (they had a great low-advance deal with DGC--Novecelic paid off a whole 30-year mortgage a few months after Nevermind blew up) and merchandising.

Grohl got credit on Nevermind. All did.

XP That's some serious $$$ there then. As for the Foos, they're one of those bands like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers whom one probably don't think about much, but are still consistently big on the remaining rock radio outlets, their albums do well out of the gate, and they have an audience big enough to still support headlining large arena/shed tours.

tbh the first sentence makes it questionable too. the only reliable public record in that entire sentence is record sales. and even if you could somehow get the rest of the info, how anyone could translate royalty figures, endorsements, etc., over the years into a believable estimate of someone's net worth at any given point of time is beyond me. at best, they're guessing.

Mainly of interest for:

When Glenn Frey died rather unexpectedly in January 2016, relations had not changed. But it still came as a shock to Felder, who found out about it after landing at LAX airport when his then-girlfriend’s phone started “blowing up.”

Felder had come back from Mexico, where he had been playing with Billy Gibbons, Dave Grohl and Sammy Hagar at a club. When his girlfriend leaned over and said “Glenn’s dead,” the guitarist thought she meant Glen Campbell, who Felder knew and has been suffering from Alzheimer’s for some time.

When he told her that wasn’t a surprise, she informed him, “No, Glenn Frey.” And even then, Felder says he thought it was an Internet hoax until it started appearing all over the news, though it was still a shock.

and the photos, wherein somehow Felder has turned into Joe Bonnamassa's Dad

I almost forgot, but when I went to see Tom Petty last month, Joe Walsh opened for him. At one point in his set, he said, "This one is for my brother and bandmate, Glenn Frey." He then proceeded to play "Take It To The Limit," which is almost inextricably associated with Randy Meisner. It was either a heartfelt tribute, epic trollery, or some combination.

That's like the one non-Joe Walsh song that Joe Walsh would probably sing pretty good on. (until the high parts.)
