Eagles Band

 Eagles band  are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971. The founding members were Glenn Frey,Don Henley ,Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner

The Eagles were one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, were ranked among the 20 best selling albums in the United States according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

Eagles  Band History

The Eagles began in early 1971, when Linda Ronstadt and her then-manager John Boylan recruited local musicians Glenn Frey and Don Henley for her band.Henley had moved to Los Angeles from Texas with his band Shiloh to record an album produced by Kenny Rogers and Frey had come from Michigan and formed Longbranch  Pennywhistle, they had met in 1970 at The Troubadour in Los Angeles and became acquainted through their mutual record label, Amos Records.

The idea of naming the band “Eagles” came during a peyote and tequila-influenced group outing in the Mojave Desert. J.D. Souther suggested that the idea came when Frey shouted out Eagles! when they saw eagles flying above. Steve Martin, a friend of the band from their early days at The Troubadour, recounts in his autobiography that he suggested that they should be referred to as the Eagles.

Eagles  Band Hotel Califonia

[Verse 1: Don Henley]
On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
“This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

[Chorus: Don Henley]
“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here”

[Verse 2: Don Henley]
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted
She got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
She calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
So I called up the Captain
“Please bring me my wine”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969”
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

[Chorus: Don Henley]
“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They living it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis”

[Verse 3: Don Henley]
Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said: “We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can’t kill the beast
Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax,” said the night man
“We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave!”

[Guitar Solo]

Eagles  Band Love will keep Us Alive

I was standing
All alone against the world outside
You were searching
For a place to hide
Lost and lonely
Now you’ve given me the will to survive
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive

Don’t you worry
Sometimes you’ve just got to let it ride
The world is changing
Right before your eyes

Now I’ve found you
There’s no more emptiness inside
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive

I would die for you
Climb the highest mountain
Baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

Now I’ve found you
There’s no more emptiness inside
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive

[Solo]

I would die for you
Climb the highest mountain
Baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

I was standing
All alone against the world outside
You were searching
For a place to hide
Lost and lonely
Now you’ve given me the will to survive
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive
When we’re hungry, love will keep us alive
