Awesome version. I think I'll educate meself a bit more on Eagles, I missed on them as on so much more, growing up in a small town in DK.
Now, they had many good songs, but it's clear that Hotel California has a special lightning-strikes magic. The kind of combination of depth and width that any artists aspires to achieve at least once in a lifetime.
I like that the audience restrained themselves to one cheer when they recognized the song, and didn't start again when he started singing.
That very pretty person with the long hair on the left, is that a dude or a girlie? Based on the nasal profile and jaw, I'm guessing male, but certainly a person born to be in Entertainment. You know, the kind everybody notices. Except, it seems, the cameraman or editor of this video.
"... she got the Mercedes bends..." is that the actual lyrics? Pretty funny.
It seems the mature Don Henley has dropped the habit of singing "say-hey" for "say" (it seems odd without it), but has picked up the habit of singling " 'otel California", like he was cockney.
The big drums have a fantastic sound, especially when they're in focus in the intro. Clever of them to make a new, full intro, with material which is brand new and yet fits. Even more clever to do such a massive hit arguably even better than the original. Det sker ikke tit.
