    The Urban Cowboy Soundtrack Holds Up Pretty Well

    Have you watched Urban Cowboy lately? It's actually on Netflix right now if you never have. But the movie that in many ways put Houston on the map in the world's eyes -- how come nobody ever brings up Terms of Endearment, though? -- frankly hasn't aged all that well. Pulpish B-movie fare to begin w ... More >>

    Don Felder Surprised at Ex-Eagles Mates' Ill Will Toward Him

    When guitarist Don Felder joined the Eagles in 1974, he was seen by many as a sort of bridge member, as the band was morphing from the more countrified lineup with Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner to the latter, rockier quintet that also included Timothy B. Schmidt and Joe Walsh. But -- just in cas ... More >>

Right up there with "Hey Jude," "Stairway to Heaven," "Layla" and "Smoke on the Water," the 1977 Eagles song -- written by band members Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Don Felder ... More >>

    Eagles at Toyota Center, 2/21/2014

    Eagles Toyota Center February 21, 2014 The Eagles don't do too many interviews with alternative weeklies, but I've always wanted to ask Don Henley if sometimes a song is just a song. Besides one of the sharpest minds in pop music, the northeast Texas native is someone who (to put it mildly) does no ... More >>

    The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Eagles, Omotai, Nikki Hill, G-Eazy, etc.

    The Eagles Toyota Center, February 21 Arguably the most successful American rock band of all time, the Eagles have lost little of their drawing power for only having released one all-original album since 1980. Of course that one, 2007's The Long Hard Road Out of Eden, sold some 7 million copies dom ... More >>

    But Seriously, Folks... Joe Walsh Coming To Nutty Jerry's May 18

    One of the best parts about seeing the Eagles in the 21st century, besides all the jokes about grandchildren and Ben-Gay that they make, is seeing Joe Walsh onstage. That survivor with the dull Everyman stare. The man who did enough drugs to stay awake until the Sun explodes. Because even while Do ... More >>

    Pop Rocks: So Who's Going to Perform at Next Year's Super Bowl Halftime Show?

    If Janet Jackson's nip slip in 2004 threw ice water on the practice of using current entertainers for Super Bowl halftimes, M.I.A.'s middle finger salute dumped it in the Bering Sea. Finally, after eight years of K. Billy's Sounds of the '70s and Pete Townshend's belly (which somehow didn't draw *an ... More >>
