Two-part documentary looking at one of the world's biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands, the Eagles.
This second part reveals the personal and professional struggles members faced while the band was apart, and chronicles the group's dramatic reunion in 1994, as well as its resurgence in recording and performing throughout the next two decades. Among the band's many achievements since reforming are its triumphant Hell Freezes Over tour, the 2007 release of Long Road Out of Eden, which sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide and earned two Grammy Awards, and its ongoing ascendance as an international supergroup.
Subtitled The Story of an American Band, this two hour forensic documentary features rare archival material, concert footage, and never-before-seen home movies that explore the evolution and enduring popularity of one of the world's biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands, chronicling the band's creation and rise to fame in the 1970s through its break-up in 1980. More than 25 new and exclusive interviews were conducted with all current band members - Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit - as well as former members Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner and Don Felder. Also featured are new and exclusive interviews with Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Rogers, Irving Azoff and many other seminal artists and band contemporaries who have been closely involved with the Eagles' history. While personal stories from band members, managers, and music industry luminaries frame the narrative, it is the unexpected moments, recording sessions, backstage interactions, and even a whimsical sequence from the Desperado cover shoot, that convey the extraordinary bond linking the artists, their music, and the times - an era when country-tinged rock and finely-honed harmonies spoke to a nation still reeling from unrest.
