The Eagles Have Announced Their Breakup

Written by Emmy Mack on March 13, 2016

Eagles founder Don Henley has confirmed that the iconic rock group is no more.

The band will not be continuing on without co-founder Glenn Frey, who tragically passed away this January.

In an interview with the BBC, Henley confirmed that the Eagles are hanging up their guitars.

“That was the final farewell,” he said, referring to the group’s recent tribute performance to Frey at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

“I don’t think you’ll see us performing again. I think that was probably it. I think it was an appropriate farewell.”

As Consequence Of Sound points out,  the Eagles have sold 150 million albums worldwide to date, making one of them one of the best-selling bands in history.

For their massive contribution to music, the rockers have scored six Grammys and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

Founding member Glenn Frey passed away in January at the age of 67, after succumbing to complications from intestinal issues.

Watch his Eagles bandmates honour his legacy with a rendition of Take It Easy – in their final ever performance – below.
