Life's Been Good At The Hotel
On November 24, 2017, The Eagles released the 4oth anniversary Deluxe Edition of their legendary Hotel California album. Joe Walsh was asked by the Las Vegas Sun to give his perspective on the album and this huge milestone. He said, "I think when it was done, after we spent just under a year working on it, we had lost our perspective on it but knew it was pretty darn good. We had no idea it was going to affect that many people. It was unheard of. We were amazed. It really turned into a big deal. I’m so proud to have been part of creating that album because a lot of musicians never get to experience that. 'Grateful' is a better word. But when we were doing the Eagles documentary, we went into the vault where we tried to keep everything and found a whole concert we recorded we didn’t even know we had. So that’s part of the big box. It’s great to watch. I can’t believe how young we are — I don’t even remember being that young. But we played our asses off. I think that’s the part of the repackaging that makes it juicy."
Hmmmm Juicy? OK, I'll take your word for it. Life's Been Good indeed.
