The Eagles – as an entity, as an apparent band, as anything relevant in my dimension whatsoever have only landed in my life three times.
(1) Via my Baby Boomer-Pluto-In-Leo/Wealthy Capricorn Uncle who believed they were “spiritual.”
(2) Via a Baby Boomer-Pluto in Leo/Culturally Rich Capricorn Photographer who said that the song “Desperado”, “Hotel California” and “Take It Down Easy” – i may have the last one wrong? – were all written about HIM and HIS life.
(3) Via my Google News Alert set for LEOS tonight and i would not have remembered/posted about The Eagles but how funny is this?
“The birth of “Desperado”: Henley began the song in 1968 and said it was initially about astrology. Frey, who helped him finish it, said the original lyrics began with an astrological name: “Leo, my God, why don’t you come to your senses.”
Their disenchantment with Glyn Johns: Johns, who produced the group’s first three albums, kept them on an ultrashort leash. “He was a complete tyrant,” Henley said. “He would give us three chances to do a track or a vocal, and if that was the best we could do, then that was it. You couldn’t help but get emotional. We even cried a couple of times.”
The “Eagles” album cover shoot: “By the time we were doing the campfire shot, we were higher than nine sailors on payday,” Frey said. “We were raging on peyote, and we were one with the desert. Whatever that means.”
HEY so does this mean that Hotel California was actually about, um, Leos? It was called Hotel Leo? You can check in but you can never leave? Or do i have this all wrong?
Oh and the “Frey” quoted – Glenn Frey – is a SCORPIO. So seriously, i.m.o, Leo vs Scorpio is THE most hellish and potentially turgid stay-the-fuq-away sort of conflict possible.
