Eagles Bringing Back Former Member For Tour?

(Classic Rock) Bernie Leadon could be set to rejoin the Eagles for their upcoming US tour, Joe Walsh has revealed. The co-founder left the band in 1975 as he became disillusioned with their musical direction, and after his relationship with Glenn Frey began to break down.

Now Walsh, who replaced him, has suggested Leadon will return and perform part of the show featuring material from his own era.

"Bernie's brilliant I never really got a chance to play with him, but we've been in contact," Walsh tells Billboard. "I'm really glad he's coming. It's going to take the show up a notch. I'm looking forward to playing with him, finally.

"There'll be part of the show that doesn't involve me, but I may come out and play some James Gang stuff, just to show what I was doing when Witchy Woman came out. We don't have that down yet." Not so fast...
