Their latest album "Long Road Out Of Eden" debuted at #1, with Britney Spears' "Blackout" debuting at #2. The Eagles sold 711,000 copies in the first week, while Britney sold 290,000. This also marks the first Spears album that did NOT debut at #1.
Let me just say thank you to The Eagles for topping the charts. But why?
Not just because they kick ass ("Life In The Fast Lane" is one of my all time fave tracks), but I declared an ultimatum with my friends after Britney's album came out. I told them that if "Blackout" debuted at #1, I would never buy another music CD ever again!
Well, the stats are in...looks like I'm off to Amazon.com to find some old school music *searches for Rush's "Hemispheres"*
We can only grow the way the wind blows
On a bare and weathered shore
We can only bow to the here and now
In our elemental war
- Rush, "The Way The Wind Blows"
