As our Archive Album of the Week this week, we have Linda Ronstadt - 'Duets'. While illness precludes Linda from recording new material, we look back at a part of her stellar career as she duets with James Taylor, Don Henley, Dolly Parton, Aaron Neville and a host of others. The voice of an angel.
Burton Cummings was the lead singer and chief songwriter of the Guess Who. I'm "friends" with him on FB. He talks a lot about music he's loved over the years. Today, he mentioned that he was a fan of the Stone Poneys, Linda Ronstadt's first group. Lots of people replied. Here's what I've learned so far: • The girl on the cover of one of the Stone Poney’s albums looks a lot like Linda Ronstadt. • The girl on the cover IS Linda Ronstadt. • Mike Nesbit of the Monkeys wrote the Stone Ponies’ big hit “Different Drummer.” • Michael Nesmith was much more than a Monkey. • Linda Ronstadt was much younger when she recorded her first album than she is now. • Linda Ronstadt spelled her last name many different ways: — Rondstat — Ronstad — Rondstadt — Rondsstat — Rhondstadt • Linda Ronstadt also sang “Your No Good.” • Glenn Frey and Don Henley were members of the Stone Poneys. Before they were in the Eagles, and when they were backing Linda Ronstadt, they were called “Sons Of Th ...
The Paul Brand LP arrived from the US. Here's a clearer picture of Mr Brand from the back cover. William Malone Bill, Camille Parsons does this look like the guy that played Artie's? Although this is an Australian record it states that it was arranged by Richard Bowden which I assume is likely to be the same guy that was a member of Shiloh with Don Henley and then became part of Linda Ronstadt's backing band? I've been in communication with Richard before so will ask him. Bill, have you found any more diaries or photos from that period? Cheers, Jason
Linda Ronstadt is joining elite in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She is being inducted at a ceremony scheduled Thursday night in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Ronstadt is not expected at the event because her Parkinson's disease makes travel difficult. Glenn Frey, who performed in her backup band with Don Henley before they formed the Eagles, is due to induct her. Congratulations Linda! You AND I traveled to the beat of a Different Drum.

Time for a musical game of "Connect the Dots". We're going to connect The Monkees to Eagles. It's actually one Monkee in particular, Michael Nesmith. He wanted to take the Monkees in a "country-rock" direction. (You with me, so far?) Nesmith wrote a song that wound up in the hands of a local L.A. band. This band had a young lead singer who came from Arizona. The song was called "Different Drum" and it became it hit for the previously unknown Stone Poneys...whose singer was named Linda Ronstadt. When Ronstadt went solo, a back-up band was recruited. Then it was discovered that the drummer could also sing. This group consisted of two guitarists; one from Minneapolis and the other from Detriot (who was a friend of Bob Seger)...Bernie Leadon and Glenn Frey. The bass player came over from another L.A. band, Poco...Randy Meisner (who had also been part of Rick Nelson's Stone Canyon Band). OH...and the drummer from Linden TX...the one who could sing...Don Henley! Linda let them go, and these guys became the orig ...

Golly, I still love Bachman Turner Overdrive, just as much as I did when I was a kid. BTO, KISS, Styx, Aerosmith (before they sold out to pop), Elton John (before he sold out to pop), Robin Trower, The Who, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, the Eagles, John Cougar, Bryan Adams, Electric Light Orchestra, Jerry Reed (yes, Jerry Reed), Gary Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, 10cc, April Wine, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Marshall Tucker Band, Bad Company, Eddie Money, Billy Idol, Billy Joel, Van Halen (David Lee Roth), Charlie Rich, Pink Floyd, Charlie Pride, Dan Fogelberg, Chicago, The Commodores, Grand Funk Railroad, Boston, Meatloaf, Prince, Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley, Donald Fagan, Earth Wind and Fire, ZZ Top, Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Heart, Heatwave, and thousands more it seems, were all a huge part of my world when I was growing up. I hope you read the name of a band or two that brought back good memories for you too. Now, go listen to some classic rock!
Though they hail from Austin, Texas, The Band of Heathens — essentially the missing link between The Black Crowes and Eagles — sound more 1970s Southern California on their latest release, “Sunday Morning Record.” Specifically Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills between 1973-75, when Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne were creating their own style of music that would blur the lines between pop, rock and country. You have to see them live to understand. Lucky for you, SLO has them tonight at The Brew. Get your tix at Boo Boo Records or at the door at 7:30pm
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Glenn Lewis Frey (pronounced Fry; born November 6, 1948) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as a founding member of the Eagles. Frey formed the Eagles after he met drummer Don Henley in 1970 and the two eventually joined Linda Ronstadt's backup band for her summer tour. The Eagles formed in 1971 and released their debut album in 1972. Glenn Frey played guitar with the Eagles as well as piano and keyboards, and shared lead vocals with Don Henley. The Eagles broke up in 1980 after becoming one of the most successful bands of all time. Frey sang lead vocals on many Eagles hits such as "Take It Easy", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", "Tequila Sunrise", "Already Gone", "Lyin' Eyes", "New Kid in Town", and "Heartache Tonight". After the breakup of the Eagles in 1980, Frey embarked on a successful solo career. He released his debut album in 1982 and went on to record Top 40 hits "The One You Love", "Smuggler's Blues", "Sexy Girl", "The Heat Is On", and "You Belong to the ...
Next time you're singing along to Linda Ronstadt's version of the Phil Everly-penned "When Will I Be Loved," take a moment to appreciate those great backing vocals and harmonies - courtesy of Glen Frey, Don Henley, and Timothy B. Schmit.
After months of speculation, Eagles drummer Don Henley has revealed which of the band's former guitarists (and yes, we included the bass) will be on board...
The Eagles documentary (History of the Eagles) is fantastic. LA in the 70's must've been a magical place. Head down to the Troubador and see Jackson Browne, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, etc. I've missed all of the great musical revolutions. Oh wait...we have Skrillex.
The original EAGLES, Glen Frey, Don Henley, Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon first met when they were members of Linda Ronstadt's backup band. -- Glen Frey of the EAGLES played rhythm guitar on Bob Seger's "Ramblin', Gamblin' Man". -- The cover of the EAGLES' "Hotel California" was taken at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Don Henley, Glen Frey, Randy Meisner & Bernie Leadon were all members of Linda Ronstadt's backup band before forming the Eagles in 1971.
McCartneyism - that art of proving you are total tool while attempting to seem reasonable. From the man himself on Jeff Lynne and ELO - "it was a given back inthose days that you were influenced by others you respected and admired. So I wasn't surprised when I first heard them and I thought "hey - they borrowed that from us and Sgt. Peppers" Or Glenn Frey on the formation of the Eagles - "we'd heard that Linda Ronstadt was looking for the best musicians working at the time to form a new band - and wanted me and Don Henley" Ah me - the unassuming humility of it all!!
"The Heart of the Matter" was written by Don Henley, Mike Campbell (Tom Petty's guitarist) and J. D. Souther (songwriter for Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles) i...
I saw Don Henley and Glenn Frey back up Linda Ronstadt in Tuscaloosa prior to the Eagles forming. Great show.

Trivia: Don Henley got his big break drumming for Linda Ronstadt, and rooming with Glenn Frey.
Happened on something really terrific last night on Showtime. No band has tracked my life, or created songs that mean more to me personally, than The Eagles. I'm not so much of a music guy, but I probably know the words to just about everyone of their songs and a dozen of them are like anthems to me. We were channel surfing and came upon a two hour documentary, History of the Eagles. It was incredible, like a pastiche of the past forty years of American rock. From David Geffen and the formation of Asylum Records and country rock, Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne, to the LA period. Their break-ups and re-uniting. May not be very hip, but if I had one seat at the dinner table to give to a rock star, it would go to Don Henley or Glenn Frey, even before Springsteen.
One of my favorite bands is going to be on TV! After remaining notoriously mum for the majority of their career, The Eagles let the world in on Saturday night at the Sundance Film Festival with the premiere of 'The History of the Eagles-Part 1'. "We were very private," Don Henley said at a press conference for the movie. (Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit were also present for the premiere.) "We didn’t allow access. We tried to keep it all in-house. But we had the foresight to film some backstage stuff. And that’s in the film." The rockumentary, directed by Alison Ellwood and produced by Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side), uncovers the band’s personal Super 8 footage, photographs and tape from a never-finished Haskell Wexler documentary. Featuring interviews with Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and David Geffen, the film follows the band from its Troubadour nightclub beginnings in Southern Cali to its beer-bottle-throwing end in 1980. Acquired by Showtime, Part 1 will air on February 15th ...
Skyhigh ''NOTE BOOK'' 12/12/12 ( Weekly ,,, something to read) EAGLES BAND - BIOGRAPHY FORMED: 1971, Los Angeles, California 1971 in California, Don Henley and Glenn Frey meet as members of Linda Ronstadt's band. They realize they have a mutual goal - the formation of their own band - which is realized when teamed with Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner by Ronstadt's manager, John Boylan, as a projected backup band. Instead, the Eagles are formed. Signed by Asylum Records, the Eagles travel to London to record with producer Glyn Johns. Their debut album is released in 1972 titled Eagles. The first single "Take It Easy" earned them instant national recognition. Another single, "Witchy Woman" hits on the charts and the Eagles tour through the end of the year. Their follow -up album is also recorded in London; however, halfway through recording the Eagles want a more rock-oriented sound and move recordings to California with producer Bill Szymczyk. The album Desperado is released in 1973 and evolves into what b ...
Todays band is EAGLES.my fav song is King of Hollywood.WHAT'S YOUR FAV SONG? INFO: In 1971 the original members included Glenn Grey, Don Henley, Bernie Lesson, and Randy Meiser. They came together to perform with Linda Ronstadt and her performers on her album in 1971. The four original Eagles only played live together only once, backing Ronstadt for a July concert at Disneyland.
Just bought an obscure cd for $3 new, Randy Newman's "Faust" a musical that never really got anywhere. But the cd cast? Randy Newman, James Taylor, Don Henley, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, & Bonnie Raitt - um, hello?!? Why have I never heard of it before now? A song from it has been used in several movies, "Feels Like Home," and I have always wondered who wrote it & recorded it. I don't think I have been this excited for a cd to come in the mail for a decade!
