Never Enough Guitars: Nice article about how and why certain bands are taking such a huge number of guitars out on tour with them. In the case of The Eagles, Joe Walsh and Glenn Frey alone have 50 guitars between them. Add guitars for drummer Don Henley who plays occasional acoustic, bassist Timothy B. Schmit and the new guy, guitarist Steuart Smith, and between them the Eagles are taking something like a total of 80 guitars out on the road.

Blimey! I saw Bill Nelson play 10 guitars during one show a few years back and I thought that was excessive.
