I don't mind doing two or three Eagles songs and playing the drums. I'm not one of those artists who's going to sit here and deny the past.
Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.
A man with a briefcase can steal millions more than any man with a gun.
I think my first instrument was a ukulele that they gave me. I used to know how to play that pretty well.
Let hope inspire you, but let not idealism blind you. Don't look back, you can never look back.
I don't care what anybody says about Ringo. I cut my rock-n-roll teeth listening to him.
I'm certainly not thrilled with everything the Eagles did, but there are some things I'm quite proud of.
The Eagles and the critics were not the best of friends.
The Eagles ended on a rather abrupt note, although in retrospect I realize now that it had been ending for quite some time.
I have a bad back partially from playing the drums and singing. I used to have to hold my body in such a position that my spine got out of alignment.
Some records with drum machines on them sound phony and plastic. It all depends on how you use the tools.
Sometimes songwriters and singers forget that. They get a melody in their head and the notes will take precedence, so that they wind up forcing a word onto a melody. It doesn't ring true.
Between each album I try to gain a new insight that I didn't have before and perhaps write a song about something that I've written about before, but from a fresh viewpoint.
I have a certain pool of subject matter that I like to write about, things that interest me: politics, religion, ecology, and relationships between men and women. And that's usually what I focus on.
I try to write conversationally; I try to write like people speak and put the emphasis on the right syllable.
