Things have been a little slow since the tour went on break, but let's check out what's been going on, shall we?

Al Miranda  ran into Timothy at a Met's game and posted this:

He told us, "I had the pleasure of meeting Tim Schmit at CitiField on Sunday, July 13th. Not sure if Tim is a Mets fan or his wife is. But who cares. Was sitting inside the Hyundai Club at CitiField ordering drinks at the bar when I looked to my left and said "gee that guy looks familiar". Wasn't sure cuz he had his shades on. I asked aren't you Tim who used to play for the Eagles and he said "I still do". LOL. He asked me my name and later got the opportunity to get a pic taken with him. Really a down to earth guy and being a music lover and guitar player myself it was a privilege to meet with him. Wanted to chat some more but didn't want to act like a groupie or bother him so I let him enjoy watching the METS kick some Florida Marlin butt."

Joe in the Studio

According to Lorenza Ponce, violin player for JD and the Straight Shot, Joe is in the studio. She posted this on her instagram:

Joe Shared This from Ringo's Birthday

Eagles Fan of the Week

My name is Janna "J.B." Braun and I'm originally from Los Angeles but currently live in San Diego. I'm a fan of the Eagles because I love music with great harmony.

I love music from that particular era, including Simon & Garfunkel, Chicago, Linda Ronstadt, and Fleetwood Mac, to name a few. To date I've been to four concerts, three with the LROE tour - Charleston, San Diego, and Los Angeles (Hollywood Bowl) - and was fortunate enough to see the first show at the revamped Forum back in January. As a Los Angeles native,that really took me back.

I've made friends from all over thanks to the site and I've been fortunate enough to meet up with some of them at concerts.

I'm a huge Timothy fan and by some quirk, I happened to spot him last April at the airport in Sacramento while going through security. After I made it through, I walked through the terminal until I found him and went up and introduced myself. I couldn't believe it!!! I've seen Timothy in concert solo three times. The first time I saw him was in Santa Barbara when he was promoting "Expando." My friend and I got there really early and we were the only ones sitting in the audience while the guitar tech was busy tuning. When he was done he came over and handed us both Timothy guitar pics. The pic is now mounted and framed along with the ticket from the concert and hangs in my office next to the wonderful Eaglesfans calendar.   (see attached photo)

Looking forward to possibly seeing them in concert again this year here in San Diego and maybe, one day, as Kennedy Center honorees.

Thanks for reading!
