Felder had submitted a cassette tape containing about half a dozen different pieces of music.
This is where Glenn and I had our first real writing session with just the two of us. Are you willing to sacrifice? He played guitar right-handed, but played golf left-handed, at least when he was driving the ball.
We were physically, emotionally, spiritually and creatively exhausted. This song especially as the song modulates is just such an encyclopedia of how the guys approach their playing...
They were soulful and memorable. Of all the Eagles studio albums up to this point, which was your favorite to record, and which was your least favorite? On April 1st, 2001, a U.

It's almost as if we knew that record would be our last. The consumption of 10 to 20 grams of dried peyote buttons will produce a wide range of effects including hallucinations, metaphysical insight or spiritual introspection. We conjured up part of that song in that restaurant. What inspired "Wasted Time," one of your greatest Eagles ballads? There was always some kind of intrigue going on in that place.
