The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971. The founding members were Glenn Frey (guitars, vocals), Don Henley (drums, vocals), Bernie Leadon (guitars, vocals) and Randy Meisner (bass guitar, vocals).
The group’s eponymous debut album was recorded in England in February 1972 with producer Glyn Johns. Released on June 1, 1972, “Eagles” was a breakthrough success, yielding three Top 40 singles.
“Take It Easy” (co-written by Jackson Browne), “Witchy Woman” and the soft country rock ballad “Peacefully Easy Feeling” launched the band to instant success.
Their follow up album, “Desperado” produced two more hits, “Tequila Sunrise” and “Desperado”.
“Hotel California”, released on December 8, 1976, was the band’s fifth studio album and the first to feature Walsh. The album took a year and a half to complete, a process which, along with touring, drained the band. The album’s first single, “New Kid in Town,” became the Eagles’ third number-one single.
The song “Hotel California”, the title track, topped the charts in May 1977 and became the Eagles’ signature song.
The album won Grammys for “Record of the Year” (“Hotel California”) and “Best Arrangement for Voices” (“New Kid in Town”). Hotel California topped the charts and was nominated for Album of the Year at the 1978 Grammy Awards, but lost to Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours”.
In early 1976, the band released their first compilation album, “Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)”. The album became the highest-selling album of the 20th century in the United States.
In September 1977, Randy Meisner (bass/vocals) left the band and was replaced with Poco bass man Timothy B. Schmidt. Back in 1971, Meisner was also the bass player for Poco and left to join The Eagles.
Following the death of Glenn Frey in January 2016, Henley stated in several interviews that he did not think the band would perform again. However, the Eagles continued performing in 2017 with guest musicians Deacon Frey (son of Glenn) and Vince Gill.
