Since 1971, the American rock band has been going strong. With multiple singles being number one hits The Eagles have become a favorite of a myriad of Americans. Initially there was only Glenn Frey and Don Henley who
made up the band but the summer after they began Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon joined the performing group. Eagles, their first debut album was released in 1972 and was definitely a success. The first successful
single, “Take It Easy,” was written by Glenn Frey and Jackson Browne. The song reached the top of the music charts and birthed many new fans for The Eagles. “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Falling” were the next
few singles which implemented the country rock sound. A year later in 1973, Desperado was produced which included hit singles such as “Tequila Sunrise,” “Desperado,” and “Outlaw Man.” Each year The Eagles produced a
new album so they stayed busy.
On the Border was their next album and “Best of My Love” made this album popular. “Good Day in Hell” and “Already Gone” were big hits also. One of These Nights and Hotel California were
their last two albums with singles such as “Life in the Fast Lane” and “New Kid in Town.” Reunited in 1994, The Eagles recorded their first album back together again which was called Hell Freezes Over. Songs such as
“Get Over It” and “Love Will Keep Us Alive” excited fans once again that The Eagles were back together once more. Their latest album Long Road Out of Eden is still going strong today since it was only produced in
2007. Fans are still dancing to The Eagles driving down the road or in their houses. The Eagles are not dead yet and neither are their fans nor music. Touring with the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban make sure you catch
them on tour in 2010.
