Life’s been good

Picture the one person in the world you really wish were reading your blog. Write her or him a letter.

Dear Valerie:

Wait, I’ve already done her. Let’s see what else I have up my sleeve.


Take a look at this list: Most admired man/woman. Do you see any issues with how “trendy” they are, on a yearly basis? Surely true heroes would endure a little bit longer than “who’s in the network news most often this year”?

I find that list pretty disturbing, actually.

So I think I’m going to take a pass on the fickle American public’s views on what makes someone admirable.


My viewpoint maybe  even more trivial, but at guess I can wallow in that?


Hey Joe,

Thanks for taking the time to read. I’m just another fan who views you as iconic to his life.

I just wanted to thank you (and Don Felder) for your work on Hotel California. It was brilliant.

Thank you for the James Gang and The Smoker You Drink. Thank you for Rocky Mountain Way and Life’s Been Good.

I’m listing–sorry about that. Saw you play here in Chicago, the  last time the Eagles rolled through these parts. My wife learned a whole lot of songs she didn’t know were from you, she’s not good at which-bands-did-what-songs. But she got a big kick out of your solo segment of that show. Thanks for entertaining us.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for so many hours on my ipod, my play lists, albums and cassette tapes and CDs. And I’m listing again. You’ve been a substantial part of the music for…40 years now? So you probably deserve a  lot of beverages, on me, any time.

Thanks again, man.

Take care.

They write me letters, tell me I’m great

Gawd so many ‘thanks’, durp drool. Glad I don’t write much fan mail, I’m terrible at it.
