Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Everyone's got his ultimate dream, savin' it for 'someday.' And 'someday' is up to you." (This interview is available at Rock's Backpages).
Where are The Eagles today?


In today’s faddish, fractured rock landscape, it’s refreshing that classic bands like the Eagles retain an appeal that transcends both generation and genre -- Dad may not know what Spotify is, and Little Johnny may not know what LP stands for, but chances are both know the words to “Hotel California.” As the best-selling American band of the ’70s, and one of the top-selling acts of all time, the Eagles’ relaxed harmonies and California-inspired sound came to define what critics eventually dubbed classic rock, and cemented their role as enduring musical icons.
