For the Eagles'Glenn Frey, popular singing televised contests like 'American Idol' and 'X Factor' are nothing more than an opportunity for singing hopefuls to take the stage and oversing. He has a message for its contestants: Tone it down a bit.

Haven't we heard this one before? The Eagles, making the publicity rounds in London, told reporters that their upcoming tour could very well be their last one. Like, ever. But the band has made this announcement about three dozen times over the past 35 years, so believe what you want.
For a band that was never particularly narrative, linear or even all that ambitious with their songwriting, the Eagles’ decision to make their second album a concept record always seemed a bit odd. Their self-titled 1972 debut was filled with peaceful, easy and likable L.A.-style country-rock that rarely grabbed at more than it could handle. At this stage in their career, there was nothing cynical or pretentious about the Eagles.
If you've been hoping to catch the Eagles on tour this summer, you just might be in luck -- if you're willing to drive to see them. The legendary California rockers have announced a limited number of shows for their 'History of the Eagles' tour, which will kick off July 6 in Louisville, Ky. and wrap up in Bethel, N.Y. on July 25.
Last month's two-episode Showtime documentary chronicling the rise and fall of the Eagles will be available on DVD and Blu-ray next month. The band announced today that 'History of the Eagles' will be released on April 30, and include a third disc featuring the group's performance at the Capital Centre in Landover, Md. in 1977.
The Eagles are part of a diverse and star-studded collection of musicians who have donated memorabilia to help raise money for those whose lives were impacted by last December's mass killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Ct.
Eagles singer-songwriter and drummer Don Henley is releasing a new solo album in May, and in an interview to promote that upcoming work, he let slip that a former member of the Eagles will return to the band for an upcoming tour -- though he declined to say which one.
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Don Felder is undoubtedly best-known for his years with the Eagles, during which time he co-wrote such classic tracks as 'Hotel California,' 'Victim of Love' and 'Those Shoes.' His outro solo with Joe Walsh on 'Hotel California' is widely considered one of the most important guitar solos of the rock era.
