Driving halfway across America  not long after the June 1975 release of "One of These Nights"  by The Eagles is when I truly realized just how massively popular this band had become. Original Eagles singer/ bass player Randy Meisner and the late Eagles co-founder singer/ guitarist Glenn Frey joined me here In the Studio in a classic rock interview that is precious now on the forty-fifth anniversary of the album which single-handedly took country and western music from the bunkhouse to Broadway.

This tour had casualties...
