Bush's Iraq policy. Shortly before their "Farwell Tour I" in 2002, Don Felder was fired from the group. In 2003, Daniels published an Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch in defense of George W. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001. Daniels was an early supporter of Jimmy Carter's presidential bid and performed at his inauguration. Several subsequent reunion tours would follow, noted for their record-setting ticket prices.
Other Daniels' hits include "In America", "The South's Gonna Do It", "Long Haired Country Boy", "Still in Saigon", and "The Legend of Wooley Swamp". In 1998, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and during the induction ceremony, all seven former members played together on stage. Daniels won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal in 1979 for "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". Controversy followed on September 12, 1996 when the band dedicated "Peaceful Easy Feeling" to Saddam Hussein at a United States Democratic Party fundraiser held in Los Angeles. In 1974, Daniels organized the first in a series of Volunteer Jam concerts. That tour spawned a live album entitled Hell Freezes Over (after a quote from Henley who said that the group would get back together only when Hell froze over) and a single, "Get Over It". His first hit, "Uneasy Rider", came off his 1972 second album, Honey in the Rock. Travis Tritt insisted on having the Long Run-era Eagles in his video for "Take It Easy." After that video was complete in 1994 that the band, after years of speculation, reunited.
Daniels recorded his first solo album, Charlie Daniels, in 1970. During the early 1990s, an Eagles country tribute album Common Thread was released. In 1964, Daniels sold a song "It Hurts Me" to Elvis Presley. Following The Long Run tour, in 1980, the band went on hiatus, and all of them had solo careers of varying degrees of success. He now resides in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, where the city has named a park after the music legend. Henley was also subsequently charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. In addition to country music, he performed rock and jazz. The tour to promote the album intensified personality differences between the band members, made worse when on the night of November 21, 1980, Henley was arrested when cocaine, Quaaludes, and marijuana were found in his hotel room after a nude 16 year old prostitute had drug-related seizures.
He was born on in Wilmington, North Carolina, and began writing and performing in the 1950s. That album took two years to make, but yielded the group's fifth and last #1 single in Billboard, "Heartache Tonight" (November 10, 1979). Charles Edward Daniels (born October 28, 1936) is a very popular country singer. In February 1978, the Eagles went into the studio to produce their final studio album, The Long Run. Schmit (born October 30, 1947). The Eagles replaced Meisner with the man who had succeeded him in Poco, Timothy B.
During the final leg of the ensuing tour, however, Randy Meisner decided he'd had enough hotel rooms in his seven years as an Eagle and left the band for the relative quiet of Nebraska to recuperate and instigate a solo career. Using California as a metaphor for the nation, the Eagles wrote about innocence ("New Kid in Town", a #1 hit in Billboard on February 26, 1977) and temptations ("Life In The Fast Lane" and the title track, a #1 hit in Billboard on May 7, 1977) of that pursuit. The group's next album, Hotel California in 1976, was about the pursuit of the American dream, 1970s style. By this time, the personalities inside the band would start clashing with each other, and there were plenty of inter-band fights.
The title track from One of These Nights hit #1 on the Billboard chart August 2, 1975. The addition of Walsh made the group's aim perfectly clear: they wanted to rock. The group replaced Leadon with Joe Walsh (born November 20, 1947), a veteran of such groups as the James Gang and Barnstorm and a solo artist in his own right. Between the album and the subsequent tour, Bernie Leadon left the group because he was disillusioned about the direction the band's music was taking.
Their next album, One of These Nights, had an aggressive, sinewy rock stance. On the Border yielded a #1 Billboard single in the song "Best of My Love", which hit the top on March 1, 1975. Two days later, Felder became the fifth Eagle. Szymczyk brought in Don Felder (born September 21, 1948 in Topanga, California) to add slide guitar to a song called "Good Day in Hell", and the band was blown away.
After completing two thirds of the album with Johns, the band turned to Bill Szymczyk to produce the rest of the album. The band wanted to rock, but Johns tended to extract the lush side of the band's double-edged music. To record their third album, On the Border, the group selected producer Glyn Johns, who had previously worked with Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and The Who. Their first album, Eagles, was filled with pure, sometimes innocent country rock; their second, Desperado, was themed on Old West outlaws and introduced the group's penchant for conceptual songwriting.
The Eagles backed up Ronstadt on a two-month tour, then decided to become a band on their own. They were short a drummer until Frey phoned Henley, a musician he'd met at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. The band formed in 1971 when Linda Ronstadt's then-manager, John Boylan, extracted Frey, Leadon, and Meisner from their affiliations. Bassist Randy Meisner (born March 8, 1946 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska) was a car and cycle buff who preferred spending time with his family to playing bass in a rock and roll band.
Guitarist/mandolinist/banjo player Bernie Leadon (born July 19, 1947, in Minneapolis, Minnesota) had a passion for country and bluegrass that shaped the band's early direction. Drummer Don Henley (born July 22, 1947 in Gilmer, Texas) was nearly a college graduate, majoring in English literature. Guitarist/keyboardist Glenn Frey (born November 6, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan) escaped Michigan's cold winters and musically stultifying frat and bar scene, bringing a rhythm and blues heritage. Not one of the four group founders was a Californian by birth.
On later albums the band dispensed with bluegrass instrumentation and gravitated to a more straight-ahead rock sound. The Eagles took the singer-songwriter ethos to a group setting with increased emphasis on arrangements and musicianship, and the group's early sound became synonymous with the southern California country rock. The originators of this genre were gifted singer/songwriters, among them Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, and Warren Zevon. Their early music was a hybrid of country and bluegrass instrumentation grafted onto the harmonies of California surfer rock, producing tender ballads and soft top-down country-flavored pop-rock about relationships, cars, and the wandering life.
