Eagles- One of These Nights 45th Anniversary- Randy Meisner, the late Glenn Frey

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.

Purely in popularity and chart stats, that sophomore record had the lowest glide path of any Eagles effort, yet in this exclusive In the Studio interview Frey and original Eagles bass player/ singer/ songwriter Randy Meisner make a detailed case for why "Desperado" may be the most important one of all.
