(FAQ). If the Beatles wrote the soundtrack of the swinging ''60s, then the Eagles did the same for the cynical ''70s. The story of the Eagles is also the story of most artists of their time the drugs, the music, the excesses, and the piles of cash. But the Eagles took it to the limit. And in Don Henley and Glenn Frey they had two songwriters who intuitively understood and accurately portrayed the changing America they lived in. They perfected the California sound, shifted power from record company to artist, and pioneered album-oriented rock. Eagles songs of the period are as memorable as any ever written, and their most popular album, Hotel California , became a timeless record of ''70s decadence. In The Eagles FAQ , music critic Andrew Vaughan brings an insider''s view into the various chapters of the group''s fascinating history. He shows how they blended the best folk, rock, and country sounds of the ''60s into a worldwide soundtrack of the ''70s while challenging the industry status quo with a new business model. The story of their rise, fall, and rebirth is all here their mega-selling smashes, their tensions and breakups, the band members'' solo work, and their triumphant reunion and continued place at the top of the rock-and-roll tree.
