New Eagles Music!

The classic rock station played a new single of the upcoming Eagles album this morning. I believe it was called “How Long”. Definitely a Glenn Fry song (which means it was a little too country for a classic rock station). But it had everything a good Eagles song should have: solid lyrics, good guitar work and excellent harmonies.

And it does speak something about the versatility of the band when the DJs were looking at the songlist going “That’s a Joe Walsh song.” “This is a Don Henley song.” I mean, how many modern bands could claim that kind of variation in style between their members, where the song’s title alone reveals a distinct and unmistakable voice?
