The Eagles. It's pretty hard for me to pick a band over a band that has Joe Walsh on guitar.

Re: The Eagles versus the Electric Light Orchestra!

The fact that ELO'S song " Don't Bring Me Down " is their highest charting hit in the United States says it all.
I'll take The Eagles .

I'm with APageMark.

It's also interesting that I read that Jeff Lynne was a great admirer of the Beatles and set out to emulate their sound. Yet nothing the Electric Light Orchestra did sounds anything like the Beatles at their best, e.g. Please Please Me, A Hard Day's Night, She's a Woman, I Feel Fine, In My Life, Paperback Writer, etc.

Re: The Eagles versus the Electric Light Orchestra!

I'm not a fan of either band, but I want to hear the Eagles with Walsh and Vince Gill on guitars. I think that's a fascinating combination.

Eagles...because Walsh joined in 75....if not ,might have gone with ELO because their first 4 are prog rock to me.
