I might finally have to admit it…
Nowt wrong with teh Eagles, I like some of their stuff, but not everything.Posted 3 years ago
You might like to check this guy out, this is the title track from his first album, Black Rose which I bought on vinyl when it came out in 1976:
You then might like to check out the song writing credits for some of the Eagles big hits, like New Kid In Town, Heartache Tonight, Best Of My Love, and How Long, looking for JD Souther, ‘cos he co-wrote them.
Lovely bloke, saw him play a 200 capacity hall in Bristol, and he played those songs, and joked about the audience not having to walk a mile back to their cars after paying $300 for a ticket.
He was delighted to sign my vinyl copy of Black Rose, I was the only person there with a copy!
He wrote some songs for Linda Ronstadt, too, when he could find the time during other…
There seems to be a bit of a move afoot to push country music on us unsuspecting rockers, these disgusting pushers like Frank Turner and Chuck Ragan tempt you in with soft options like an acoustic version of their old punk songs then the next thing you know you’re injecting country music into your eyeballs.

Having moaned at Drive-by Truckers using an SG I now have to admit some songs sound better played on an SG, iolo. That’s definitely country but not for me. I’m struggling to find any country in Bike for Three, ned. Like any thread with lots of Youtubes this will shortly die as it takes so long to load.Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember

I bought Black Rose after reading a review in NME in ’76 which gave it five stars!
Amazon have a bunch, including Black Rose: http://www.amazon.co.uk/J.D.-Souther/e/B000APZLAY

What something’s labeled as is irrelevant to me, all that matters is how good it sounds. I’ll happily listen to ABBA as well as Zappa, Fairport Convention and Faith No More.
