Did you know The Eagles are the only artist or band to play FIVE nights at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California? They played the Shoreline on June 6,8 10, 11 & 12, 1994 during their "Hell Freezes Over" tour. The mazimum number of nights the Grateful Dead played at Shoreline was three and max for Springsteen was two. I'm talking about how many shows an artist played on one visit to the venue.

Has anyone else noticed that today's "modern country" sounds suspiciously like 1970's Eagles? What this proves, I won't try to tell, but it does indicate influence!

No way Joe, modern country sucks. The Eagles rocked!!

In my opinion, they are the most important band in country rock history.

What do these four bands have in common?

The Eagles - Greatest band ever. Before they retire or call it quits, would like to see "A One Night Only Show" with the current members of the group including Bernie and guest appearances by Randy Meisner and "Fingers" Felder - jeez talk about a night to remember.

The Eagles weren't the first to do country rock. Johnny Cash had them beaten by about 20 years. I'm very surprised that they were a first ballot inductee. They released some good material, but also a fair amount of AM radio bubblegum.

Didn't realize The Eagles had to postpone their Kennedy Center Honors award until 2016 due to Glenn Frey's health problems. Hope everything's okay with Frey and that's very gracious of the Kennedy Center to postpone the award. It's better for all the Eagles to be present, especially when Frey was a critical founding member of one of the best American rock bands of the 1970s.

The Eagles had to postpone their Kennedy Center Honors award until December 2016 due to Glenn Frey's health problems. The Kennedy Center has a rule about only honoring living entertainers. I wonder if they will bend the rules a little on this one since The Eagles were already announced as honorees before Glenn Frey's death.

I was wondering the same thing--though earlier I was wondering if they would include Randy Meisner, Donald Felder and Bernie Leadon(who arguably contributed as much as the current members) in the honors.

RIP Glenn Frey, another major death in the Rock music world in just the first few weeks of 2016. He was a major part of The Eagles' success and helped write many of their great songs.

R.I.P. Glenn Frey. January's been bad for Rock

I am very shocked and saddened to hear about the recent passing of Glen Frey. I would like to extend my most sincere condolences to his family and friends. I suppose that this means that The Eagles are now finished. My favorite album by The Eagles is "Hotel California."

The Eagles get a Special Collectors Edition of Rolling Stone Magazine.

FRL, read in recent story on Glenn Frey (quoting him) that name of band is 'Eagles'. There is no 'the', according to the co-founder of band.

Eagles are Top 10 band of all time considering their vocal sound scapes, guitar work, songwriting etc. I think Eagles are similar to The Beatles that they rode off into the sunset at the top of their game. Eagles would return later in 1994-1995 with When Hell Freezes Over. I always enjoyed After The Thrill Is Gone which features Don Henley & Glenn Frey alternating vocals. Hotel California stands the test of time. Say for some reason Eagles had never been inducted into the RRHOF. With Glenn Frey's passing, they would probably be on this ballot. I'm curious where the FRL regulars would rank Eagles in the pantheon of legendary rock groups and in the RRHOF pyramid. KING
