The Don Felder Insult and Onstage Confrontation That Glenn Frey Says Ended the Eagles

The Eagles were a major country-rock band, known for hits like "Hotel California" and "Take It Easy," still popular today.

The band's breakup in 1980 was tumultuous, marked by a public altercation between Glenn Frey and Don Felder during a performance.

The pressures following their hit "Hotel California" and a less successful 1979 album led to conflicts, especially during the tour promoting the new release.

A confrontation at a fundraising show for Senator Alan Cranston in 1980 led to the band's split, with Felder and Frey clashing on stage.

Despite the breakup, the Eagles reunited in 1993 and continued with new members after Frey's death in 2016, maintaining their legacy.
