Most music fans are familiar with Stan

become a songwriting partner of Don
Henley's. A recent issue of Goldmine

magazinefeaturedaninterviewwiththis;"':
multi-talented musician where he talked
about his break from the Heartbreakers
and his friend Don Henley. What follows

are excerpts from the article. The
complete text can be found in the
December 6, 1996 issue of Goldmine.
By far, Lynch's most productive working
relationship has been the one with
Henley. The pair co-wrote and coproduced "Learn to Be Still" from the
Eagles' reunion album, Hell Freezes
Over, and together they crafted four

songs

for Henley's Actual Miles

compilation, including the anthemic,
"Garden of Allah".

"He's one of the funniest people I ever
met," Henley said about Lynch. "And
that is very important when you've been
in the studio for two or three months,"
Henley continued, "l remember when my
group broke up--l went through an entire
gamut of emotions, from anger to fear to

around Southern Accents time. Was
that something of a life raft for you?
Danny Kortchmar had recently made the
jump from "Leroy" or session guy. He
said that at one point it boils down to

you're either doing someone else's thing,
or you're doing your own thing. ln life. So
he had made the decision, in his mid-3Os,
to no longer do other people's things.
Kootch was super-bohemian, and I stayed
at his house three days--people were
coming in and out, I met Russ Kunkel and
Jim Gordon, The refrigerator was always
open, and Kootch's girlfriend knew lots of
other beautiful girls. lt was really free, and
I was coming from a scene where it really
wasn't sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Or if
it was, it was really very private. This was
my kind of guy! We put together a metal
band called Diik and recorded a bunch of
songs,
He was making a record with Henley and
they threw me a track and said, "!Ve're
looking for some words." That was "Drivin'
With Your Eyes Closed."

What was Henley's reaction to the news
(of Lynch's leaving the Heartbreakers)?

Well, he knew. Don's an intuitive man,
and he's my friend, He was one of the first
calls I made. I said, "l think l've lost my job
playing drums." I flew to Colorado that
night and spent the week with him. And
we talked it out, He was very generous; he
gave me his time.
I

told Kootch and without missing a beat he

said,

"l think you've just been given a

promotion."

Glenn's of

it ogoirl,,,,

. .acting that is. Glenn has a small, but important
role in the new Tom Cruise movie, Jerry Maguire,
Most of us had heard about Glenn's most recent
foray into acting and have been anxiously awaiting
this movie's release. We were expecting Glonn to
just have a cameo. lmagine our delight and
surprise when we saw that Glenn's character is not
only named, but also allowsd four wardrobe
changes!

!

Glenn plays Dennis Wilburn, owner of the Arizona
Cardinals (a football team if you're sports ignorant
like us). Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is the agent of
one of Glenn's players. Glenn's first scene is about
an hour into the movie, We see him attending a
spring training workout. Being the owner, he blows
off Maguire. We see him again on the phono with
Jerry. Glenn is given, in our opinion, a very
unflattering camera angle, Glenn's wardrobe
ranged frorn good looking polo shirts and Khaki's to
a very unattraetive suit wiih a pink shirt. Guess
football owners don't know how to dress either.
How did Glonn do? Well, since he was on screen
for less then five minutee total, it had to be hard to
me6s up, As in most of his previous acting roles,
Glenn basically played himself. This is most
apparent in his last scene with 0ruise. After you
see the movie, you'll know what we mean!

Also appearing in the movie as the brother of Jerry

Maguire's one and only client is Aries $pears.
Most of us know him from his role as Ziggy on
South of Sunset. lt's good to eee him working

again.
Overall, we thought the film was pretty

good

Heck,

we found ourselves thinking Tom Cruise looked
almost attractive in his jeans and stubble! We may
even have seen this movie without Glenn Frey"

.HAYWIRE''

AIRBORNE

Haywire is sofia dedicated to all the young kids

The name of the alhum is Airborne which is a
kind of a little bit of a longue in cheek. The front
of the album has this $tratr:caster kind of drifting
down, suspendeci by a parachute out in the
desert where the Twilight Zone was filmed. We
were originally gonna take and superinrpose, up

tfiat are in the age of 13-16 who ara yet to
experience their first sexuul encountsr. And

in the left hand cornsr, the side of a troop
transport plane with a shooting insignia called
$creaming Eagles. it k:oks hypothetically like
just bailed autta one sltuation (ha ha) and was
about to arrive in another. So, I felt like having
a significant correlation between me and Eagles'
advertising on ihe recorci jacket wasn't really
I

tasteful

so I

scraped the aircraft

wl

th€

$creaming Eagles insignia on it and just went
with the guitar and the parachute...and to a
eertain extent tried cleliberately to not make an
album that sounded like the Eagtes and what the
Eagles would do in 1980, .Some of the songs
that are on this record are sons$ that I had
originally written for the L.ong Run album and
through the course of one event o politics or the
taste of making fi group decision on material,
didn't wind up on that record; so I stuck them on
the shelf and just finished them for myself One
of the songs was "Bad Girls" That song and a
song called "Haywire" were ones that I had
originally written for The Long Run and didn't
quite fit the Eagles mold or Eagles sound or
adaptablility.

.'BAD GIRLS''
That looks like ii may be the first sirrgle and it's

to

there's a certain age thare where everybody is
fuli of anticipatiCIn and ycrur nrind's running wild
with the ideas and the one ihing that happens in
tlre middle of experiencing your first experience
is you just literally go Haywire (ha ha). A lot of
people whp have heard this record have said
there's 3 sr 4 song$ on there that sound like
what the Eagles would have done in the 80s and
although l've kinda deliberately tried not to do
thut, I can't help but retain a little of that
character in rny music.
.,ASPHALT JUNGLE''
I lived in Manhattan for a year and a half and I
literally was struggling frr:m gig to gig...guitar in

one hend..suitcase in the pther and

no

dough...the whole feeling r:f being and working

in

New York was very hard and cold and
bitter..,the people arrd the lifestyle you saw out
on the street were just very abrasive. That was
a song that encapsulates not oniy that feeling
of New Yprk, but after having traveled the
united $tates and Japan, Australia and Hurope,

that same element, that sarne feeling is really
inherant

irr

all the r"eal large cities in the warld.

,,WHO TONIGHT''
This is about all the people that go from week to

week and who don't really have a single
perscrn,,another person in therr life. an
unmarried person or pretty much the people that

don't have steatly lovers or whatnot They go for a
week and it comes Friday night and the situation
is getting more and msre intense. They're getting
dressed and they're gone go out looking to find
somebncjy and they don't really know who it's
gonrra be, but they know it's gonna be somebody.
$o it's basically called who will you love tonight
and that's a kind of a stirnulating question (ha ha).
.-NEVER SURRENDETI''

This is a song I did for Fast Times ql Ridoemont
High ihat I wrote with Kenny Loggins. lt's really a
song about people that are young, going out on
Saturday night looking for fun and thrills and
whatnot and find themselves very easer to get
involved in relationships with people that are very
transparent and whatnot, lt's the people who
really never settle for that type of relationship and
who hold out for that magic person and literally
never surfender for less than that,.. people like
myself and Loggins that actually do find someone
to be with
I think it's nice to write about human
situations You carr write a song that deals with a
key huinan emotion that a lot of people
experience and the two most popular themes of
rock n roll are love and sex (ha ha). A lot of
people seem to relate to that and if , in fact, you
can write through ihat motive from personal

experience, people oan relate

to it

and

understand what you are talking about, then you
are at least lyrically a succsss in communication.
,.ST!LL ALIVE''
This is basically a song that's about myself and
my wife who I met long before all this ever started

taking place. And it's sort of a little bit of a
testimonial to anybody that's gotten married and
gotten divorced that it's true that people can find
each other and get marned and go through hell or
high water or through whatever course happens to
thenr in their life. lf you hold on to it, you can
continue to stay togelher.

,,wlNf{ERS"
This is basically a song ai:clr"rt people who live the
lifestyle of partying and havrng fun, waiting for

tomorrow to satisfy all their dreams. And that's
okay, you know? lt's about being a winner, staying
alive, and having fun while you're alive.
..NIGHT OWL"
This is about all the people who have lived or are
living lifestyles where they get up when the sun
goes down and party all night, You know, the
people who need sunglasses for the daylight and
don't really get going until the stars come out. l'm

sure everybody knows someone like that. (srde
note..Henley considered this sang for I -Qa.n't
Stand 6ti4".)

The Hotel California has existed for 20
years in the hearts and minds of millions
of fans of supergroup The Eagles, but it
took two Chinese-Australian architects
to bring the building to life.

The mystery deepens with the discovery

of the hotel's disappointing wine

list.

"We haven't had that spirit here since
1969," the waiter comments. Weird
voices are heard in the darkness,

Sydney architects Paul Peng and Sam
Guo won this year's international
Graphisoft Association of Collegiate
Schools of Architecture competition with
virtual reality rendition
the
mysterious hotel described in the
group's 1976 hit song.

a

The

of

Hungarian-based competition,

decided in May, asked for "works which
have never existed physically, or are
long mise ing from
physical
landscape but are nevertheless real in
present-day culture",

the

The

organizers described

the
competition as an opportunity to convert
cultural virtual reality into something
mCIre palpable,

ln the song, a weary traveler books into

an opulent but eerie hotel on a dark
desert highway. The lyrics hint at an

attraction to an unnamed woman of
tantalizing decadence ("her mind is
Tiffany twisted").

tL{

Unspecified but frightening activities
take place at a feast later that night, and
the narrator ends up running for his life
before the song finishes in a legendary
guitar solo.

Peng says the choice of the Hotel
California came easily to him, "l love the
music from that era. As a ChineseAustralian growing up in the '70s and
'80s, the Hotel California was closer to
me than, say, a castle or temple from
European history,"
Peng's first step was to look for clues in
corridor,
plenty
doonray,
of room, mission bell,
mirrors
ceiling, residents
gathering for a feast in the master
chamber and dancing in the courtyard,
were some of the hints,

the words of the song:

on the

To bring the Hotel California to life, Peng
studied California's history, cu$toms,
architecture and climate. He went to his

local video shop and hired movies with
a Californian or US south-west theme,
such as Thelma and Louise, Angel
Heart and, for good measure, a few
spaghetti westerns.

Peng says the brief called for an
evocative design, but it also gave
entrants a great deal of freedom in
designing specific features, "We

made

the building contemporary

-

because the song is timeless it
relates to no special time," he says. "lt
is contemporary, but with familiar
imagery
windmill, timber and
bricks."

Peng and Guo designed the building
