Focusing on the group's 1972 – 1980 heyday, this book chronicles the dynamics and inner workings of the Eagles – steered by principals Don Henley and Glen Frey – as they shifted from country rock innovators to stadium rock icons.
Never before have the band's vital media encounters from this era been compiled in print form. EAGLES: ESSENTIAL INTERVIEWS explores the band from its humble beginnings in the early 1970s up through its break-up at the dawn of the 1980s.
Compiled by John D. Luerssen for Rock Reader Books, Eagles: Essential Interviews counts the keen insight of principals Frey and Henley – plus former and current members Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner, Joe Walsh, Don Felder and Timothy B. Schmit – during their reign and after The Eagles ceased to fly, this must-have book allows the band to tell fans its own fascinating story.
The Eagles defined American rock music in the 1970s, with five # 1 singles and six #1 albums – all in the span of just eight years. The band continues to dominate classic rock playlists on the strength of both Their Greatest Hits 1971 – 1975 and Hotel California. These two 1976 releases rank among the ten best selling albums of all time in the U.S., selling 29 million and 16 million copies respectively.
