History of the Eagles Part One


If we go to the well and nothing comes up,

we would be in trouble. So far, so good.

I think we can maintain

this for a few more years.

I don't see why not.

Other people have. The Rolling

Stones and the Who and the Led...

and Led Zeppelin. I almost said

THE Led Zeppelin!.. Have done it.

Chicago's done it.

Groups last longer than

they used to, you know?

Shit don't float.

90% of the time, being in the

Eagles was a fucking blast.

You know, I was living the dream.

He was a hard-headed man

He was brutally handsome...

We never in our wildest dreams figured on

being this successful and lasting this long.

She held him up...

We were a bunch of guys out

there touring the country.

We had a little private plane.

We had parties after the shows.

We had a good time. We were

starting to make some money.

They took all the right pills

They threw outrageous parties...

We had three guitar players finally,

you know, so we could rock a bit.

So, it was a good time, a good

time for me, a good time for Don.

Life in the fast lane

Surely make you lose your mind...

Everybody was really happy...

.. then!

Life in the fast lane

Everything, all the time

Life in the fast lane...

It was going really fast,

and probably too fast.

There was turmoil within the band.

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves.

As Glenn used to say, "We

made it, and it ate us. "

It's hard to be in a group. It's

a bit like being in a marriage,

if you quadruple it or

quintuple it, in our case.

They asked Don when the Eagles broke

up, "What was that like for you?"

And he said it was a horrible relief.

And I think that clocks it pretty well.

You're a real pro, Don, all the way.

Yeah, you are, too. The

way you handle people.

Except the people you pay,

nobody gives a shit about it.
