don: think of it as the old guild system, where i am the master and you are the apprentice.

Reminds me of what I posted last year"

Also I picked up Felder's hefty Between Heaven and Hell in the library, and read the whole thing that afternoon, which never happens. Gist: his father comes off as a self-made, self-righteous, self-torturing workaholic and skinflint, and Don follows suit during his Eagles years, with infinitely more bucks and perks than blue collar Dad ever had, of course. Furthermore, Dr. Phil, he somewhat recreates his own defiant-dependent teen relationship with Dad, now played by Henley and Frey.
When he finally gets his ass fired, after having papers served in the studio, he actually calls back, all crying---"Try to seek some higher ground in this, Fingers," Frey counsels, and the ex-Mrs. Felder fervently seconds. So he does, by writing this agony-and-juicy-tidbits saga. He's always been go-to for tha latter apparently; has everybody in the firm calling up to ask him what "the Gods" are up to now, incl. the Gods themselves, D & G, checking on each other, and maybe themselves. D. circulates a memo on making sure the toliet paper rolls *toward* the shittee, so reacharound nec. One of the lighter moments.

And he casually mentions in that one of his guitar students back in Florida was "Tommy" Petty.

I'm happy that we all came out of this thread stronger, bolder and wiser. And we didn't even lose anyone along the way!

Listen, you ever hear me use the pronoun "we", be assured that it'll mean "me and the Eagles".

Love the responses from angry Eagles fans - and Alfred's retorts - in the blog post linked above.

I wondered why my stats were exploding two weeks ago: an Eagles fan site had linked to it.
