GLENN FREY: SUCCESS FORCED THE BAND APART

Eagles in the 70's
The archetypal west coast band of the ’70s, the Eagles reached a creative and commercial peak in 1976 with their Hotel California album.

Looking back, Glenn Frey, according to the Daily Express, feels the magnitude of their success brought too much pressure on the group.

He told BBC News: “If I had known what I know now, I would have just had the Eagles have a vacation for a while, we’re getting on each other’s nerves, that’s what the Stones used to do... It’s not really ego, it’s the pressure to follow ‘Hotel California.’ Trying to get better every time out, and you just can't be better every time out, every record can’t be ‘Hotel California,’ every song you write can’t be ‘Desperado.’”
