The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1971. They are known for their harmonies, intricate guitar work, and well-crafted songwriting. Glenn Frey and Don Henley first met in 1970 when they were hired as session musicians for Linda Ronstadt’s backing band.
They quickly discovered musical chemistry and shared a passion for creating their own music. Frey played guitar and keyboards, while Henley played drums and sang. They decided to form a band together. Bernie Leadon, a skilled multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, was also part of Linda Ronstadt’s band.
Some of the future Eagles toured with Linda Ronstadt, and they all played on her third solo album, Linda Ronstadt, released on January 17, 1972, on Capital Records, before venturing out on their own on David Geffen‘s new Asylum Records label.
He joined Frey and Henley, bringing his country and bluegrass influences to the mix. Leadon played guitar, banjo, and mandolin, adding a unique flavor to the band’s sound. Randy Meisner, another experienced musician, and vocalist, completed the original lineup. Meisner had previously been a member of Poco, another influential country-rock band. He played bass and provided additional vocals, contributing to the band’s tight harmonies.
The four musicians began writing songs together and performing at local venues, gaining a reputation for their exceptional vocal harmonies and songwriting skills. They attracted the attention of record labels and signed with Asylum Records in 1971. Glenn Frey, born on November 6, 1948, in Detroit, Michigan, had a passion for music from an early age. Growing up in a musical family, he was influenced by his parents, who were both music lovers.
Frey learned to play the piano at a young age and later picked up the guitar. He was inspired by artists like Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. Don Henley, born on July 22, 1947, in Gilmer, Texas, had a deep connection to music from a young age. Growing up in a small town, Henley was exposed to various musical genres, including country, rock, and rhythm and blues. He began playing drums in his early teens and was heavily influenced by artists like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers.
Henley’s musical talent led him to study music theory and performance in college before venturing to Los Angeles in pursuit of a music career. Bernie Leadon, born on July 19, 1947, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, had a diverse musical upbringing. Leadon grew up in a musical household and developed a passion for playing multiple instruments from a young age.
He honed his skills on guitar, banjo, mandolin, and various other stringed instruments. Leadon was heavily influenced by bluegrass, folk, and country music, which became integral to his musical style. Before joining the Eagles, he was a member of several bands, including the Flying Burrito Brothers and Dillard & Clark. Randy Meisner, born on March 8, 1946, in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, had a modest upbringing that nurtured his love for music. He started playing guitar at a young age and was drawn to the sounds of country and rock ‘n’ roll.
Meisner’s musical journey began in local bands, honing his skills as a vocalist and bassist. In the late 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he became part of the vibrant music scene and joined the band Poco. Meisner’s tenure in Poco helped solidify his reputation as a talented bass player and singer. It was during this time that he crossed paths with Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Bernie Leadon, eventually joining them to form the Eagles.
Having not settled on a band name yet, they performed their first show in October 1971 under the name of Teen King and the Emergencies at a club called The Gallery in Aspen. The idea of naming the band “Eagles” came during a peyote -and tequila-influenced group outing in the Mojave Desert. Accounts of the origin of the name however vary; Don Felder (who had yet to join the Eagles and was not at the desert) credited Leadon with originating the name when he recalled reading about the Hopis’ reverence for the eagle, while Souther suggested that the idea came when Frey shouted out, “Eagles!” when they saw eagles flying above. Steve Martin, a friend of the band from their early days at The Troubadour, recounts in his autobiography that he suggested that they should be referred to as “the Eagles”, but Frey insists that the group’s name is simply “Eagles”.
The Albums (touch or click album name)
The debut studio album by the American rock band the Eagles is simply titled “Eagles.” It was released on June 1, 1972, by Asylum Records. The album marked the beginning of the Eagles’ successful career and laid the foundation for their signature sound. “Eagles” features a blend of rock, country, and folk influences, which became characteristic of the band’s style.
Glenn Frey revealed that the band was all on peyote when the gatefold picture of the band members was shot in Joshua Tree National Park. The gatefold sleeve was not used. The album cover was by artist Gary Burden with photography by Henry Diltz.
The album was produced by Glyn Johns, a renowned producer who had previously worked with artists like the Rolling Stones and the Who. The tracklist of the album includes ten songs, with contributions from various band members. The opening track, “Take It Easy,” written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, became one of the band’s signature songs and achieved commercial success.
The band went to London, where they spent two weeks recording the album at the Olympic Studios. The album cost $125,000 to produce.
Other notable tracks include “Witchy Woman,” a haunting rock ballad with Don Henley on lead vocals – always one of my favorite songs, and “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” a laid-back country-infused tune. The Eagles’ debut album received generally positive reviews from critics.
- “Take It Easy” Released: May 1, 1972 –
No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 – written by Jackson Browne and Frey
- “Witchy Woman” Released: August 1, 1972 –
No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 – written by Henley and Leadon
- “Peaceful Easy Feeling” Released: December 1, 1972 –
No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 – written by Jack Tempchin
It showcased the band’s harmonies, tight musicianship, and well-crafted songwriting. While it didn’t achieve immediate commercial success, the album laid the groundwork for the Eagles’ subsequent rise to fame.
Over time, “Eagles” has become a classic and remains a beloved album among fans. It captures the essence of the band’s early sound and sets the stage for their future success in the music industry. The solo album reached number 22 on the US Billboard 200. The group was one of the support acts for Yes on their Close to the Edge Tour.
The second studio album by the American rock band the Eagles is titled “Desperado.” It was released on April 17, 1973, by Asylum Records. “Desperado” builds upon the success of the Eagles’ debut album and further solidifies their unique blend of country, rock, and folk influences.
The photo shoot for the cover took place at the Paramount Ranch, an old film set for Western movies in Malibu Canyon. A reenactment of the capture of the Dalton Gang. On the ground are Jackson Browne, Bernie Leadon, Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner, Don Henley, and J. D. Souther. It was, however, an expensive shoot, and to justify the cost a promotional film for the album was also made at the same time. The film was shot on Super-8, then sepia-tinted, and transferred to videotape. In each process a little video quality is lost, which Frey described as a “nice accident” as it made the video appear aged and more realistic. Henley described the promotional film, like the album itself, as “a commentary on the loss of innocence with regard to how the music business really worked”.
The album is conceptual in nature, with a theme centered around the idea of the outlaw and the struggles of living on the fringes of society. The songs on “Desperado” explore themes of love, loss, longing, and the pursuit of freedom. The album showcases the band’s exceptional songwriting abilities and their tight harmonies.
“Desperado” features contributions from all band members, with notable tracks including the title track “Desperado,” written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, and “Tequila Sunrise,” which became a classic Eagles song.
- “Tequila Sunrise” Released: April 17, 1973 – written by Henley and Frey – reached # 64 on the Billboard 100
- “Outlaw Man” Released: August 6, 1973 – written by David Blue –
reached # 59 on the Billboard 100
The album also includes the popular ballad “Saturday Night,” written by Randy Meisner, and “Doolin-Dalton,” a Western-inspired narrative written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. Despite receiving mixed reviews upon its initial release, “Desperado” has gained critical acclaim over the years and is considered one of the Eagles’ seminal albums. It showcased the band’s growth as songwriters and their ability to create a cohesive and thematic musical experience.
For the next studio album, On the Border, Henley and Frey wanted the band to break away from the country rock style and move more towards hard rock. They turned to producer Bill Szymczyk who wanted a harder-edged guitarist. They chose Leadon’s childhood friend Don Felder. He was born on September 21, 1947, in Gainesville, Florida, and had a passion for music from an early age. Growing up, he immersed himself in guitar playing and drew inspiration from artists like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.
Felder’s musical talent caught the attention of the Eagles, and he joined the band in 1974 as a guitarist and vocalist. His guitar skills became an integral part of the Eagles’ sound, contributing memorable solos and intricate melodies to their songs.
On The Border (1974)

The band played at the California Jam Festival in Ontario, California, on April 6, 1974.
