You might like the Eagles.
You might not.
I did for the longest time until they started taking 2 years to produce a record and DAYS to get a single drum pattern right.
I saw the Eagles at Carlaw Park in Auckland in 1975 – just after Joe Walsh had joined the band – and listened to a pirated cassette of the 1980 release of “Eagles Live” and was stunned (“delighted”-stunned…) by the hard edge that Joe brought to the band.

Despite being told by Dylan’s managers that he would be sacked if he raised the idea again, it was Johnston – a country-music-loving Texan – who persuaded Dylan to re-locate to Nashville to work with session musicians there. The outcome was Blonde on Blonde (1966), often voted the best rock album ever made, not least because it captured the spontaneous ferment of Dylan’s talent. Johnston facilitated that.
(I love this movie – I watched it 3 times back-to-back on a flight home from Singapore)
But he’s best known for the lead in to “To be alone with you” as Dylan asks his producer whether they’re recording
