Eagles Concert Tonight!

In my teens and 20's I was a big concert goer. Just loved everything about them. My first concert was going to see Three Dog Night at the Fairgrounds arena in OKC. Some of the most memorable (well I honestly don't recall them too well) or maybe momentous is a better word, were the days of the "Cotton Bowl Jam" in Dallas. I went several times that I recall. The first one was headlined by Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. It appears it cost $13. The backup band was the Eagles. I really didn't care that much about the Stones, I went for the Eagles, not Montrose, Trapeze, Billy Preston or any of those other groups. Jam 2 headliners, on July 23, 78, were Fleetwood Mac, The Steve Miller Band, Little River Band, and Bob Welch. I got stuck online looking for that Stones concert and I swear I can't find it. Either I've got the wrong year in my head or I just dreamed it up. Those senior moments are coming far too often these days or that's how it was in those days.

I certainly won't relive too much of that time tonight as the bride and I go to see the Eagles. And not to mention tickets tonight are higher than they were in the 70's but I swear the Eagles sound just as good now as they did then. Well, that's all for now. Gotta go exercise, take the bride to eat then to sing along with my all time favorite band.

It's a long road to eden,

I also went to the Eagles' concert last night with my two boys and it was so great. They bought me a ticket for my birthday. I think the Eagles may sound even better now! The guitar solos alone were worth the ticket price! Hope you both enjoyed it as much as we did.

I too am a concert junkie (if you haven't heard). Must be an Ellis thing. =)

The Turner parents are headed to the big D to see the Eagles tomorrow. I'm jealous!
