Overview


From their inception in 1971 through their smashingly successful 2007 album Long Road Out of Eden and the accompanying 2008-2010 international tour, The Eagles have seen it all and lived to tell about it. In Eagles, one of America’s top rock journalists delivers a comprehensive insider look at arguably the greatest American rock-and-roll band on the occasion of their 40th anniversary. From their origin and rise to fame, to the music, the recording sessions, the fights, the tours, the parties afterward and the hangovers that followed, Ben Fong-Torres covers it all backed by deft research, first-hand interviews, and a collection of fantastic photographs from some of the best rock photographers in the business.

In the course of 40 years, the Eagles changed line-ups five times, split up twice, recorded seven highly successful albums, toured the world multiple times, released the top-selling rock album in American history, and sued each other. Their story is a uniquely American journey, and their legacy is assured for decades to come.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This unauthorized book is at least the third Eagles title written by past band members or outsiders since 2009. Fong-Torres (Grateful Dead Scrapbook) falls into the latter category, having been a senior editor at Rolling Stone, one of the band's frequent media targets. Fong-Torres reminds readers about his background throughout this handsome, condensed history of one of rock's most successful and contentious bands, published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Eagles' formation in 1971. Artistically and commercially triumphant almost immediately, with a smooth blend of California rock and country, the Eagles released six studio albums between 1972 and 1979, changed lineups multiple times, sued each other, split up, and reunited—for now, at least. Fong-Torres, who covered the band regularly for Rolling Stone during their glory years, touches on all phases of the band's ugly and complicated career, most effectively chronicling the Hell Freezes Over reunion and ongoing touring. Fair in his critical assessments and laudable for most of his choices regarding dozens of classic photographs, the author nevertheless gets some easy facts wrong. (Oct.)
From the Publisher

Bookviews, October 2011
“Lovers of rock and roll and fans of the Eagles are going to want to find Eagles: Taking it to the Limit by Ben Fong-Torres in their Christmas stocking…. the book is handsomely and extensively illustrated with many photos from the past four decades, along with an excellent text.”

Tulsa World
“The book’s as much a visual conversation piece as a written history — full-page photos in black and white and color hold down nearly every two-page spread.  Then there is the drama. Lots and lots of drama…”

Henry L. Carrigan Jr., Evanston, IL, Library Journal
“Because Fong-Torres was so close to the band, this is kind of an insider's story and a fan's appreciative notes rolled into one, accompanied by stunning photographs. If you can buy only one book about the Eagles, this should be it.”

AmericanProfile.com
“Timed to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the California-based musical supergroup, this impressive collection of sharp rock journalism and fly-on-the-wall photography chronicles the heady rise, rancorous fall and almost unbelievable reunion of the band that ruled the '70s and '80s air(waves) with "Take It Easy," "Desperado," "Hotel California" and dozens of other now-classic radio hits.”

tucsoncitizen.com
“An exciting visual record that is the perfect tribute on the group’s anniversary”
 
San Jose Mercury News
“From their early days as Linda Ronstadt's backup band to the glory years as million-selling hit-makers -- followed by a much-publicized breakup and reunion tour -- the group's history is as heady and contentious as any in the business. Fong-Torres does a fine job of laying it out.”
 
San Antonio Express
“It's the whole story — a beautifully packaged, fascinating read with dozens of color photographs.””
 
The Bugg Blog
“… full of gorgeous photographs… it reads like the story of the group written by someone as close to the inside as one can get without it being a band-approved biography.”
