Timothy B Schmit Interview with Shawn Perry. Shawn Perry : I was just blown away, really. As a singer, how mind-blowing is it when you come into the Eagles and you sing a Top 10 hit like “I Can’t Tell You Why”? I mean, you’re brand new in the band and boom. What was that feeling like?
Timothy B Schmit : Well, you can imagine, you know, it was dreamy. I mean, this is the kind of thing I had envisioned or desired and for many, many years thought it was way out of my league completely as a teenager. You start playing, playing for people, you might get a gig opening up for somebody who comes through town, which the band I was in used to do a lot. Then you hear yourself on the radio and it doesn’t get any better than that. And then if your career keeps on going — not on a straight incline by the way, there are some definite bumps — but as your career continues and if it keeps getting better…you get asked to be part of one of the biggest bands in the world, and the first song you record is a song you helped write and you hear it on the radio, it’s good…it’s great. I’m really, really fortunate. There’s a lot of real talented people out there with much more talent than me who just don’t get these kind of chances. #donfelder #takeiteasy #tequilasunrise #sevenbridgesroad #hotelcalifornia #joewalsh #glennfrey #donhenley #randymeisner #timothybschmit #bernieleadon #eagles #eaglesband #music #rocknroll #california #californiasound #jimmybuffett #london #jacktempchin #jacksonbrowne #lindaronstadt
