Glenn Frey: “Success Sunk The Eagles”

If only we could go back in time and change the mistakes we made when we were younger. Life is full of choices, and those choices come with consequences.

For The Eagles, following up 1976’s Hotel California proved to be an insurmountable task that would eventually drive them apart, forcing their break up in 1980.

Over 30 years later, Glenn Frey wishes they had just taken a vacation instead of pushing forward with the status quo.

Here’s what Glenn Frey told BBC News in a recent interview:

“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 (Rolling) 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.”

To the shock of many, the band reunited in 1994 for the Hell Freezes Over tour and would release only one more album, 2007’s Long Road Out Of Eden.
