They redefined rock music and have sealed their place in music history as one of the most successful bands ever. Find out why people all over the world can't get enough of The Eagles.
The 1970s was a decade crowded with rock bands, but the Eagles immediately stood out among the rest. Their eponymous 1972 debut album launched them onto the scene with a trio of Top 40 singles and set a pattern for massive success to come for the rest of the decade. They released five more multi-Platinum albums before disbanding in 1980, though by then they had cemented their status as classic rock pioneers, known for creating their own specific subcategory of the genre dubbed California rock.
Founding members Don Henley and Glenn Frey embarked on successful solo careers during the group's hiatus, though they remained best known for their work with The Eagles. In 1994, they came back together for a massive tour which spawned a No. 1 live album. By 2008, the band - comprised of Henley, Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit - had released a new record, Long Road Out of Eden, their latest to date. Overwhelming popularity kept them touring the world into the 2010s before Frey's sudden death in 2016. Despite initial hesitation to continue performing following the loss, the surviving members (along with Vince Gill and Frey's son Deacon) returned to the stage in 2017 and have been selling out some of the world's biggest venues since.
Their unmatched career accomplishments include multiple Grammys, American Music Awards, a prestigious Kennedy Center Honor and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Eagles' impressive catalog of hits include No. 1 smashes "One of These Nights," "Best of My Love," "Hotel California," "New Kid in Town" and "Heartache Tonight." Other fan-favorite tracks that have stood the test of time are "Lyin' Eyes," "Life in the Fast Lane," "Desperado," "Take it to the Limit," debut single "Take It Easy" and holiday hit "Please Come Home for Christmas."
In 2018, the Eagles' album Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller to become the best-selling album in the U.S. with over 38 million copies sold. Their 1976 album Hotel California trails Thriller as the third-best-selling album.
