The Eagles are the most popular, enduring rock band in America. With singles and albums hitting the top of the charts for a quarter century and a greatest hits collection that has sold more copies than any other recording in history, the Eagles have entered the pantheon of pop music. To the Limit is the unauthorized account of the group from its earliest years through the breakup, solo careers, and reunions.Blending the country and folk music of the late sixties with the melodic seductiveness of Detroit-style roots rock, the Eagles brought a new sound to a stagnant music scene. Under the brilliant management of David Geffen, the Eagles projected a public image of unshakable camaraderie-embodied by the cerebral, brooding Don Henley and the intuitive, self-destructive Glenn Frey-bolstered by the gorgeous harmonies of their songs. Behind the scenes, however, there was another story.At turns revealing, inspiring, funny, and shocking, To the Limit is the chronicle of a time, a place, and a group that succeeded in changing forever the world of popular music.I love The Eagles. Eliot talks about the history of the band and their members. I learned a lot! I think I would like to read another book about them just to make sure that this book is correct. It does talk about their early life, their career, and the success of the band. If you are interested in learning the entire story of one of the more popular bands in the world than you really should give this book a try.
Instead of going on in great detail about the book I am going to showcase some of my favourite Eagles songs. Enjoy!
