The Eagles

The Eagles

The Eagles started life as Linda Ronstadt’s backing band, where Glenn Frey and Don Henley cut their teeth. In 1972, they recorded their self-titled debut album with former Flying Burrito Brother Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, a veteran of another country-rock band, Poco. By the middle of the decade – accompanied by some lineup changes, including the addition of guitarists Don Felder and Joe Walsh – the Eagles were one of the biggest bands in the world. Their 1976 greatest-hits album still ranks among the bestselling LPs ever released. In 1976, the band made its masterpiece, ‘Hotel California,’ about death and decadence in the Hollywood scene that nurtured them. In 1982, among much animosity, they broke up, but they reunited in 1994 for a series of tours and albums that have kept them busy and rolling in cash in the 21st century.
