About The Eagles
Although Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit The original Eagles line up found Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner coming together to back up Linda Ronstadt.
After a gig and an album as Ronstadt's band, the foursome landed a deal at Asylum Records, a new label helmed by David Geffen. Their eponymous debut in 1972 yielded the quick hit “Take It Easy” which was written by Frey along with his neighbor at the time, a young Jackson Browne. The single almost made the Billboard Top 10, falling shy at number 12. The two follow-up tracks, “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” both only made it into the top 25.
The Eagles' next outing was Desperado. Frey and Henley co-wrote the bulk of the tunes together, the title track and the hit single “Tequila Sunrise” among them. The successful pairing of Frey and Henley claimed the spotlight while Leadon and Meisner sank slowly into the shadows. The Eagles will be performing live in Memphis again this year.
Wanting to move more toward a rock sound rather than their established country-tinged style, the Eagles brought in Don Felder to contribute slide guitar to On the Border, their third record. Felder made such an impact that he was asked to join the band. Two tunes from that collection -- “Best of My Love” and “Already Gone” -- were bonafide hits that would go on to become classic songs.
Keeping their songwriting partnership in place on 1975's One of These Nights, Frey and Henley crafted more great works. The single “Lyin Eyes” brought home a Grammy and the title track topped the charts. Frey has cited “One of These Nights” as his favorite Eagles song.
Leadon resigned from the band just before they went on tour to support the release because Felder had been handed most of the guitar parts that Leadon had previously played. Tensions were so high that Leadon actually dumped a beer on Frey's head as his way of quitting. Joe Walsh was brought in posthaste to take over.
Their Greatest Hits (1971 – 1975) was released in 1976. The set would later earn the title of the best-selling record of all time, having sold more than 42 million copies around the world.
Hotel California also came out that year. Two number one hits emerged in the title track and “New Kid in Town.” Other tracks also did well on the charts. At the end of the Hotel California tour, Meisner left the band. Timothy B. Schmit, who replaced Meisner in Poco, stepped in once again to fill his shoes.
With a new formation all set, the Eagles entered the studio in 1977 for a two-year process of recording what was supposed to be a double album. The Long Run had only enough songs for one album, but their fifth chart-topping single was among them, “Heartache Tonight.”
The "Long Night at Wrong Beach" happened at a show in Long Beach, Calif. on July 30, 1980. Tempers flared; egos collided. The band's between-song banter was filled with physical threats. The Eagles' day in the sun was at its dusk. ...read more
