From the ever hilarious porcelain72 about her trip to DisneyWorld:

While in the American Experience showcase, you can sit back and listen to live music while you have a nice hot dog or slice of apple pie. Most of the featured performers are corny relics of the 60s and 70s, like Herman's Hermits and the Guess Who, where only one actual member still remains. Because the real Eagles have the audacity to still charge $200 to $300 for concert tickets (and presumably for the tempting possibility that Don Henley and Glenn Frey will break out into a fistfight right on stage), the featured performers the day we were there was an Eagles cover band, which ranks in sheer musical lameness somewhere between a Lynyrd Skynyrd cover band and a Journey cover band. God bless their ambition, but imitating something that sucks already will only make it suck worse. I guess their plucky spirit in the face of impossible odds (those impossible odds being the chance that someday they'll stop sucking) represents all that is great about America, and why they played in that showcase. I can dig it, let's all hold up our lighters and sing the chorus to 'Desperado.'
