Absolutely Insane Stories From The Heyday Of The Eagles

Updated 27 Dec 2018 125.7k views14 items

While one of the most popular and best-selling bands of all time, The Eagles aren't necessarily thought of in the same vein as hard partying bands like The Rolling Stones. The Eagles' smooth vocals and soft rock sound paint images of relaxing ocean sunsets and gentle breezes, not drug addiction and backstage fights. The reality, however, is totally insane. 

From their formation in 1971 to their dramatic disbanding in 1980, The Eagles not only dominated the charts with gentle country-rock ballads, they also racked up an impressive amount of crazy tales that rival hard rockers like Led Zeppelin and Guns N' Roses. This list breaks down some of the most insane groupie stories, backstage blowouts, and police run-ins from those peaceful, easy feelers, The Eagles.
