Exploding onto the Los Angeles rock and roll scene in the early 1970s, after Jim Morrison and The Doors popularized the region’s status in the music industry, The Eagles quickly became one of the most prominent bands in America. Although, at the time, it was hard for people to imagine a legendary rock group that wasn't from the U.K., this talented group of up-and-comers proved that Yanks can dominate the genre and cultivate the fan base that rivals epic bands like The Who and The Byrds.
Many people would find it hard to believe that The Eagles got off to a shaky start when singer Linda Ronstadt and her manager recruited musicians like Glenn Frey and Don Henley in the spring of 1971 to begin a summer tour. The original Eagles only played once together as backup for Ronstadt for a concert at Disneyland, and all four band members were featured on her album released that year. She later encouraged the members to split and form their own band with the talent they began to notice, eventually signing with Asylum Records.
The band's first album, which was released in the summer of 1972, was a groundbreaking success, conceiving hit singles like "Take It Easy" - which quickly reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, boosting the band's popularity and paving the way for a spectacular and long-lasting career. Throughout almost every year of the decade, The Eagles released at least one album, providing attention-grabbing themes and hit wonders for a massive demographic during the heyday of rock and roll. The band topped off its career with the release of the 1976 album known as Hotel California, which practically made the band a household name around the globe.
The Eagles proceeded to produce catchy rhythms and blues-driven songs throughout the late 70s continuing to rise in popularity as the band members began to merge their tunes into the mainstream. After an acrimonious break-up, the famous group put on a reunion tour, named after the new album Hell Freezes Over, from 1994 to 1999. In 1998, The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, topping off the band's illustrious career with an unforgettable triumph. To this day, the band is still putting on shows that please its most loyal fans and prove that these talented artists still have what it takes.
