The Eagles

I’m always thrilled when I see someone doing work – that is obviously their passion.  Work that is fulfilling – and profitable.

Last night I had the privilege of attending The Eagles concert here in Nashville.  This is part of their amazing Long Road out of Eden tour.  Dave and Sharon Ramsey booked a suite at the Sommet Center and invited us to join them and a few other friends for this night of a lifetime of memories.

I so often write about finding one’s passion and to see it in a bunch of 60-yr-old guys is not something you see every day.  These guys don’t appear to be “working” – they just look like they’re still having a whole lot of fun.  When they hit the 9-minute version of “Hotel California” the place erupted and they played it with the same intensity they did almost 40 years ago.

Could you imagine your daily “work” being that much fun?

    Ok Dan,
    Now you’re just quit blogging and started bragging!

    This is so true. When you love what you do, the line between work and living become blurred as they often become one in the same. I’m so glad I love what I do as each morning brings a fresh opportunity to bring honor and glory to the Father above! I pray that 40 years from now I have the same intesity and passion. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Dan,

    After seeing the Eagles in Dallas, I whole-heartedly agree with you. Only I think they are still progressing in their art and are even better and more passionate than they were 20 years or so ago. We should all grow passionately in our work.

    We just bought their live DVD. It is great! I agree and with some jealousy, that they are doing what they love. I will always remember Billy Joel saying he still expects someone to grab him by the collar when he’s playing the piano and say, ” Get a job, you loser!”

    My husband and I are still working on our dream jobs…

    We should all be sooooo lucky!

    The Eagles were my favorite band in the 70’s and still a favorite. Those guys love what they do and they are good at it. Yes, they are passionate and still progressing in their art. I saw them in concert in Grand Rapids Michigan in 2005. It was awesome and one of my most memorable concerts next to Pat Matheny who is also passionate, highly gifted and intelligent in his work.

    Even if you and the rest of these people consider the Eagles to be your favorite band, the words to Hotel California are about the most disturbing thing I have ever heard put into a song. I always turned it off as fast as I could back then, and still cringe even hearing a part of it today.
    Surely there must be something a little more uplifting as an example of great passion. Passion for something doesn’t always mean it is good – and can even be evil.

    He spins, he boogies, rub him the wrong way and he knocks his head against the glass.

    The gameplay and action in the single player campaign is great
    and I would highly suggest running through at least a
    good portion of it before tackling the multiplayer.
    Simply individuals have to sign in on any kind
    of trusted websites where all versions of hack are available.
