I was linked to this today:
At first, I assumed that it was faked/cut together. But now I think it's real, and that he really did say this while alive. I never knew that he addressed the Eagles in any way, the least of all in audio format.
But the main problem I have is that the clip just ends after that last "shut up". What was the context in which he said this? Did he really not say anything afterwards to elaborate? "Shut up" could well mean either of these things:
- "I have no idea and I don't want you to talk about it because it embarrasses me."
- "Just read the book, you idiot! It's right there! I'm not going to dignify that dimwitted question with an answer at this point."
Which one was it? I truly cannot tell if he's making a joke or being genuinely upset, and in either case, what he meant to convey. Also, it's still possible in my mind that this is some sort of "cut" and he didn't really say it like that at all. Or maybe the entire clip is " AI generated"...
