One of the definitive bands of the American [[TheSeventies 1970s]], and the group behind many of classic rock's most iconic hits - "Hotel California", "Life in the Fast Lane", and "Heartache Tonight", to name a few. They started as a backup band for Music/LindaRonstadt; the band consisting of guitarists Glenn Frey and Bernie Leadon, bassist Randy Meisner and drummer Don Henley. She noticed that they worked well together, then encouraged them to go on their own. They started out as a country rock group before moving on to more mainstream sounds and dropping members; '''Eagles''' found their way to super-stardom around 1974 - the year guitarist Don Felder joined. In 1975, Leadon quit, and was replaced by former James Gang guitarist Joe Walsh, and the band would reach their greatest success with the 1976 release of their album ''Hotel California''. Many of their songs revolve around or at least touch upon the ugly side of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanDream that nobody talks about, which the band members felt they knew quite a lot about by the middle part of their career. Possibly worth noting is that their first GreatestHitsAlbum was the best selling album in United States history for over three decades, and its status only changed because Music/MichaelJackson [[DeadArtistsAreBetter died]]. Randy Meisner quit in 1977, replaced by Timothy B. Schmidt (who also replaced Meisner in Poco). The band broke up following an infamous concert in July 1980 that featured Frey and Felder threatening each other throughout the performance. Each of the members went on (or in Walsh's case, back) to a solo career, although Henley and Frey were the most successful.
