Hey, I didn't make a big deal out of Hotel California. The 18 million people that bought it did.
I think musicians and artists are the most philanthropic people I know. Their charity record of the music business would hold up to the work of anybody.
My songs grow on people - like warts.
Some people, they just don't get a joke.
There are only those certain people where things click - at least for me.
Except for a few guitar chords, everything I've learned in my life that is of any value I've learned from women.
I read the Life magazine articles about free love and free dope in California. At age 20 I drove to Los Angeles.
If the Eagles were to get back together, it would have to be for the right reasons. I think it would look awful if it were just for the money.
I'm just as insufferable and useless as every other dad is. The dynamic never changes, no matter what you do for a living.
The last two years with the Eagles were pretty intense times. There was a lot of drinking and we were all getting high a lot. My parents were relieved when I got off the Eagles treadmill.

I've read somewhere that when you're writing, you should stop while you're doing well so you always want to go back to work.
That's what I miss out of all this synthesized music - it starts to lose dynamics.
Hey, a woman changed her mind - what else is new?
I won't apologize for ticket prices. I think we're well worth it. We consider ourselves in the elite touring acts, like the Stones, Elton John, Paul McCartney.
