Henley Credits Eagles Success To Dumb Luck

(Classic Rock) Eagles co-founder Don Henley believes some of the band's success was down to "dumb luck" and they're aware how rare it is to have enjoyed two rounds of big-time glory.

They split in 1980 then returned 14 years later to enjoy as much acclaim as they had during the 70s. Speaking at the premiere of their documentary, History Of The Eagles Part One, Henley admits it's a rare achievement.

He tells Rolling Stone: "We fully realize how fortunate we are. We don't take credit for all that some of it is just dumb luck. Some of it is being in the right place at the right time; coming into contact with the right people, the right managers, attorneys, crew members, producers. There are a whole lot of people involved in this other than us.

"We were fortunate enough to have one of the rarest things in American life: a second act. We broke up for 14 years and came back, and we were bigger than ever. We still pack arenas and stadiums 42 years on." more on this story
