The Eagles

Last night, while channel flipping ~ Greg found a documentary on the band "The Eagles" ~ and it was really interesting.  The guys in the band talked about their struggles, both with each other and with drugs/alcohol.  It covered why different folks left the band and about the folks that joined the band.  It was really neat to see the guys then ~ and the guys now.  And they talked quite candidly about all the events surrounding their fame.

Which made me start thinking about all the concerts I attended as a teenager at the Omni in downtown Atlanta ~ Styx (many times ~ still like them), Chicago, Beach Boys, the Carpenters, Neil Diamond, The Osmond Brothers, and many more.  Good times & great memories.  A highlight of the year was the annual Toys for Tots concerts ~ Styx was in the ones I saw in 1976-1978 or 79.  They featured about 6 bands every year and most went on to become big hits.  And the tickets were cheap plus each person brought a toy to donate for needy children.

What a blast from the past!
