In flight since 1971


Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner were backup players for Linda Ronstadt in 1971 when they decided to form their own group. Their early sound was a combination of country music and Surf Rock. Their first album, released in 1972, was a million-seller. Five more albums followed before the band dissolved in 1980. Guitarist-vocalist Don Felder was added in 1974. Joe Walsh replaced Leadon in 1975, and Timothy B. Schmit replaced Randy Meisner in 1977.
