I think the Eagles are one of the most talented bands ever, increadible songwriting and musicianship. I just read Don Felder's book 'Heaven and
Hell: My Life With the Eagles' and strongly suggest it to any Eagles fan, lots of insight to the band thru the yrs. Something I learned from that
book was the fact Glenn Fry and Don Henley are two of the most shrewd and arrogant A-#$%% in the business. They screwed Felder over big time,
basically wanting him to be nothing more than a hired hand in the end. I lost a lot of respect for Fry and Henley after reading the book. Felder and
others in the band referred to them as "The Gods". Maybe they didn't like the fact that Felder wrote their biggest hit 'Hotel California', who
knows. But, they've written some damn good songs over the years.
It's hard for me to pick a best song from them, they've written so many great songs. For sure Desparado, Hotel California, Take it to the Limits,
Take It Easy, Lying Eyes and Wasted Time rank in the top for me.
