    Hmmmm.....This one feels real familiar, but it might have to simmer in my head for a few hours before it'll come to me.

    Though I personally am not that big on organized religions, being the peaceful philosophical dude that he is, it would stand to reason that he'd be the kind to be a searcher and a seeker. (I wonder of the broad reaction he might've gotten if Christianity would have been the avenue that he had taken, as if at the end of the day it really makes much of a difference).

    While he didn't fully admit that he had become extreme about it (not to be mistaken with radicalized), you could tell from one of those interviews that for a time he had become deeply submerged, and danced around saying so, or that he's approaching life more realistically now than maybe before, but still it must've served its purpose in his life when he was more intense about it.

    While some fans might not be ready to welcome him back, he to me is essentially the same peaceful prophet that he had always been as it's apparent that to his core this is what he's all about, and the message of his songs are timeless and still resonate.

    With all of that said, and while he didn't say so, and while as an artist he'd undoubtedly have the urge to get back at it, I've little doubt too (because who are we kidding?) that the potential for a nice big pay day would also be some motivation to dust off the acoustic and his vocal chords.

    One of my favorite tunes by this bunch.

    14.
    They spoke about the red man's way,
    and how they loved the land
    And they came from everywhere
    to the Great Divide
    Seeking a place to stand
    or a place to hide
    .....

    Some rich men came and raped the land,
    Nobody caught 'em
    Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
    people bought 'em
    And they called it paradise
    The place to be
    They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

    You can spend all your time making money
    You can spend all your love making time
    If it all fell to pieces tomorrow
    Would you still be mine???

    I think this was on the flipside of a 45 that I had - maybe "Life In The Fast Lane"?

    His choice of religion is his choice. He changes his name and falls into never never land. Oh wait, I need more money "I'm Cat Stevens" I'll pass.

    Rolling Stones called this song "the finest live rock performance ever committed to vinyl"

    I loved the twist of words in this song. Best Eagles song IMO.
