InQuire more: Today’s Q pays tribute to the late great Glenn Frey, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles, and the band’s hit single “Lyin’ Eyes” from their 1975 “One of These Nights” album.
The Eagles sold more records than any other band in the 1970s, with four consecutive No. 1 albums, five No. 1 singles and its “Greatest Hits 1971-1975” album, which alone sold upward of 26 million copies.
Take a moment to reflect on this New York Times obit for the legendary musician, which expands on the band’s hit songs, which “included yearning, battle-of-the-sexes musings like “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Heartache Tonight,” and the cool-cat lifestyle statements “Take It Easy” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” all of which featured Mr. Frey’s light, casual, relaxed lead vocals.”
