Why Bernie Leadon Is Not In the Current Version Of The Eagles?



Interview Clip #2- Was Bernie Leadon Invited Back Into The Eagles After Glenn Frey’s Death?
July 12, 2019 – When I told some of the followers of this channel that I would be interviewing Bernie Leadon the biggest suggested question was why isn’t he on stage with them now? He left the band after “One of These Nights” in 1975 and was part of the “History Of the Eagles” tour from 2013-2016. So was he asked to come back?

Timothy B Schmit Tried To Avoid The Drama in the Eagles



The Eagles’ Timothy B Schmit Tried To Avoid The Drama in the Eagles
The bassist told the Telegraph he feels exactly like we all do when it come to all those Rock-Gods dying, saying, “It seems like people are just dropping off the Earth, I suppose that happens when you get older. It’s part of life. No one’s getting out of it.”

As for Glenn Frey dying? The 69-year-old former Eagles singer said he had no idea how sick he was saying, “He went into hospital… and didn’t come back.” Frey died on January 18, 2016, aged 67.

On Frey Schmit says, “He wasn’t a wishy washy kind of guy. He knew what he wanted, so you weren’t left guessing about anything. But what I remember most fondly was that he was a belly laugher. He was a funny guy, always telling jokes. If he heard something funny, he would almost fall on the floor laughing.”

As the last Eagle to join the band Schmit was not interested in all the drama adding “I felt the tension, I saw the squabbling, but I didn’t know how deep it was, I was the new guy, I wanted to fit in. I saw it get heavier and weirder, but I missed the build up. I thought, ‘This will pass’.”

He certainly knew his own place, saying, “There was a pecking order. It was Glenn and Don’s band, no question. And they knew what they were doing. I learned a lot from them. A great song has to stand on its own, just singing and playing, and the rest is frosting. But you have to pay attention to the frosting.”

Schmit replaced Randy Meisner in both Poco and the Eagles and his opinion on a reunion? It’s not going to happen. He told the Telegraph, “It looks like it, The Eagles couldn’t be the Eagles without both Don and Glenn. That’s why I think this thing’s over. You see a lot of oldies bands still going out and playing when there’s not one person left from the original line up. I wouldn’t ever want to go there.” – by John Beaudin

Don Henley On Deacon Frey's Future With The Eagles



Don Henley On The Future on Glenn Frey’s Son In The Eagles
Could the Eagles have continued without the help of Deacon Frey? No according to Henley. The singer/drummer told Rolling Stone magazine they needed “family blood’ to keep the Eagles’ spirit alive.

So is there a specific time on how long Deacon will be in the Eagles? Henley said, the “wonderful part of it and the sadness that goes with it. I’ve told him that he doesn’t need to feel obligated to do this indefinitely. If he wants to start his own band and write his own music, he should do that. He can do this as long as we all agree that we want to do it. He may want to carve out his own future, and that’s just fine.” As many have pointed out, not that Eagles need any more fans, Deacon is sure to bring even younger fans to their shows. It’s extraordinary what that young man has done. I saw him sing “Peaceful Easy Feeling” at his father’s memorial service. As difficult as that might have been, he was so brave and composed. I’m sure, on the inside, he was churning. After a few months went by, I thought, “Why not see if he would like to be in the band?”

As for advice Henley and Joe Walsh told him to keep his eye on the work. Not to over-think any of their shows.

On that other new kid in town, Vince Gill Henley said, “It was a no-brainier for us to get Vince. Nobody else, other than Deacon, was even discussed. Glenn played golf with him. And Vince was in a band called Pure Prairie League. They did a style of music similar to ours – country-influenced pop. He fit like a glove. And his personality is great. He’s just glad to be there. He’s probably the happiest guy onstage.”

The Eagles are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their biggest album “Hotel California” by releasing a remastered repackaged edition. – by John Beaudin
