    Came upon this band... Sweet Teeth... not to be confused with Sweet Tooth. Really digging their sound... wish I could find out more about them. Here's their BandCamp page.

    And here's the song I heard that turned me on:

    I always felt that Don Felder was the underrated Eagle. He is an awesome guitarist

    I understand the hate. Truly. I didn't realize this was the eagles Don Felder till Manik pointed it out. That combined with digging anything from Joe Walsh has me abiding that the eagles exist.
    I couldn't hide my lying eyes if I said I've never run down the road trying to loosen my load while calling to the captain to bring me my wine.

    I've been known to post Miles Davis links from time to time. Monk, Davis, Parker, Corea... the Golden Age of Jazz, IMO.

    HA HA, I wholeheartedly agree about the Eagles. I loved Hotel California as a 13 year old the same as I liked Stairway To Heaven or any other rock epic (FREEBIRD!!), bought the tapes (or stole, 15 tapes for a penny, never paid) and was bummed that most of their other stuff was lame. BUT, Walsh and Felder going back and forth with leads at the end of Hotel California is still great guitar rock, the song Walsh sings at the end of the movie Warriors is a good tune (In The City? or something like that) and the doc about the Eagles is worth watching for all the drugs and groupie action plus rock history. My buddy's sister used to date Glenn Fry back in the 70's, she was a Playboy model and is on the cover in a see through rain coat, and he has some stories. But yeah, over rated and lucky to have Walsh, who is one of my favorite guitarists.
    I also dig Jazz quite a bit, just re listened to Bitches Brew from Miles in the summer, what an album.

    Kind of Blue and... believe it or not... his work on the soundtrack to Porgy and Bess, which dates back to the '50s!

    Miles is a genius. His autobiography is awesome , although parts were hard to read, he was not very fond of white folks. Malcolm X's autobiography was kinder. And Miles grew up well off, not a ghetto kid. But still a genius. There is a half decent movie about him with Don Cheadle.
