    Default Eagles Fly 2004

    I was recently lucky enough to have a fellow linker (thanks again ) share some boots with me, one of which the majority (if not it's entirety) was taken from the Balance tour...now on it, Sammy does Eagles Fly, and at the end, the whole band kicks in and plays it...did this happen at all in 2004?? Even if they didn't, the fact the Sam still did his solo leads me to think that the guys really were/are still cool with one another, and that aside from the eternal silence, all of the drama between members is somewhat exagerrated by us starving fans on the internet...(mods, I could see this spinning into opinion/spec, but the root of my question is in regards to performances on this tour, but feel free to move, of course...)

    At the St. Paul tour I was at, Sam alone did Eagles Fly, and the lighers rose! I haven't heard of any show where the band kicked in with him. Each band member had their own solo and that was Sam's. He told everyone how he made it in 1985 when he just joined VH. Anyones show different?

    The band never kicked in at the end of the song. He actually used his solo as a sort of little medley with Eagles Fly and some other song like Deeper Kinda Love, Tropic of Capricorn, or I Can't Drive 55 after the solo. Out of the 6 shows I went to he only continued w/Eagles Fly twice, the other times he played part of another song after half of Eagles Fly.

    In Worcester and Hartford, the band did NOT join in with Sammy. They did do it on the Balance and RHRN tours. It sound amazing with the band behind it.

    In STL Sammy did the first half of Eagles Fly,then went off on some lead jam "thingee" and then came back and finished Eagles Fly.

    I think most people only see them once per tour, so I'm sure the majority of people at each show don't mind at all...though I see your point if you see them more than twice per tour...but then again, I wouldn't want to hear Jump 6 times at 6 shows, either...

    If they never play Eaglesfly, Jump or ATAL ever again. I wouldn't mind in the slightest.

    I saw them on 11/03/04 In Milwaukee,WI. Sammy did Eagles Fly and I Can't Drive 55 solo. I wished the band would have joined him for 55.

    I don't think Ed is interested in promoting Sammy's solo career and that's why the band didn't/wouldn't participate in Sammy's solo songs on this tour, IMO.

    If that's the case, I'm not sure they'd let him do it at all...

    IMO, I think it was understood that Sammy was going to play what ever he wanted during his solo time.

    Grab a boot from the outdoor tour for RHRN Live, Sam does Give To Live i believe, and then the band does the entire Eagles Fly and it gives you goose bumps, some of the melodic shit Ed is doing is incredible.
