The Eagles Biography
The Eagles are an American Band which was formed by 4 friends, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, Don Henley, and Randy Meisner. The Eagles were one of the most successful bands in the 1970’s. Two of their albums, Hotel California, and Greatest Hits (1971-1975) were ranked among the 20 top selling albums in the 20th century. In fact, Hotel California is ranked as the 37th greatest album in the Rolling Stones list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
The Eagles have sold more than 150 million records, with 100 million of those being sold in the US. They are the 5th highest selling band in American history. No American band sold more records in the 1970’s than the Eagles. Their 1st album released in 1972, had 3 top 10 singles. Their second album, entitled Desperado, was released in 1973 but didn’t reach quite the popularity of their first album. In 1974, the band released their album called On The Border, which had two top 10 singles.
However, their 3rd album, One of These Nights, made the Eagles extremely popular. This album had 3 top 10 singles. Hotel California, their next album, which was released in late 1976, would be their biggest album ever. Hotel California has sold more than 16 million copies in the United States and an additional 32 million copies globally. They released one more album in 1979, but then disbanded for almost 14 years.
The Eagles reunited in 1994 and made another album, Hell Freezes Over. They have toured off and on over the years. In 2007 they released another album, Long Road Out of Eden, and went on tour in support of the album in 2008. The Eagles released a documentary about their career in early 2013 and are on tour through 2015, even though Randy Meisner will not play due to health problems. The Eagles have an estimated net worth of $800 million, not including their current tour, which means they are on the road towards becoming billionaires.
