Many of our fans ask why we paired the Eagles with Ronstadt. Answer: THEY ARE ETERNALLY CONNECTED.
Glen Fry and Don Henley of the Eagles were members of Ronstadt's backup band. They knew they were pretty good. When Fry and Henley decided it was time for them to start their own band, they respectfully approached Ronstadt about the idea. Instead of blowing them off or becoming angry about losing two of her best musicians, she and her manager helped Fry and Henley put the band together. Henley acknowledged as much when the Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Ronstadt suggested that Fry and Henley contact Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. These four formed the original Eagles. Ronstadt hired the four to play behind her while they literally got their act together. They were one of the best backup bands in history before striking out on what would become an awesomely successful career in Rock & Roll. Ronstadt, backed by the Eagles, performed at a Disneyland Grad Night in 1971. Another top act, billed at the same Grad Night, was Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. That must have been some party.
