I have always loved the Eagles. I had the first album and would babysit, clean house , wash cars, whatever odd jobs I
could do to get enough money to buy the next album.
When I got old enough to go to concerts I'd do anything to get to go.
And that was back in the olden days before computers and cell phones and ticket master back when you had to go to
the ACTUAL SOUND WAREHOUSE to get tickets and we camped out.
They went on sale at 10:00A.M. on Saturday at the
So we went and got in line at midnight on Friday night, bundled in our sleeping bags and our food and our beer and our cigarettes and our other, well never mind about THAT.
And it was a EPIC party.
The KATT was there and KXXY and we were all dancing and singing and hanging out.
SO MUCH FUN...
Even though it rained for a couple of hours, and we were all piled on each other like a stack of puppies and we had to
take turns sitting in the teeniest Honda car ever warming up and wandering off to use
a porta potty ( which I have always hated) it was a magic time of camaraderie and memories made and I always felt like
The Eagles songs were a sort of gospel of sorts explaining life and love.
So when we got to go to this concert it brought back so many memories and for a while I was 18 again only instead of
lighters there were cell phones, nobody was smoking herb or cigarettes, nobody was passed out in the walkway, and
we and the band were a lot older.
But listening to the song Desperado brought the same kind of enlightenment( specifically about love)
that night as
when I was 18 with these lines,
"You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet"
"Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table"
"Don't your feet get cold in the winter time"
Love is taking a chance<3
Love is home<3
Love is comfort<3
