Im suprised anyone is picking The Eagles over Fleetwood Mac TBH.

Fleetwood Macs catalogue is just nuts in terms of quality and depth (not having a go, it is all subjective just saying im suprised).

Unfortunately Ive probably heard most of them
My cousin was a massive metal head until he became a JW and got rid of his demonic past
He is now an Elder getting rid of new devotees HM collections one at a time

Whenever im feeling down tho ill be sure to put on some Suicidal Tendancies :thumbsupv1:
Honestly the vocalist Mike Muir would appear to have had a lot of mental health battles over the years and I feel some of his lyrics would be helpful to some (“How Will I Laugh Tomorrow when I can’t even smile today” is a good one)
