Eagles soaring high here!
2 January 2015 | by (Miami, Fl) – See all my reviews

Despunrado! Why I don't come to my senses and stop the pun plethora in my reviews! I can't tell you why! Wait!! Take it Easy! Don't leave! Because I can tell you is that "History of the Eagles" is the best rockumentary I have ever seen with my lying eyes; I mean staring eyes. Director Alison Ellwood's documentary focused on the entire Eagles history; and Ellwood effectively took it to the limit on chronicling the full cycle of the Eagles story. Don Henley and Glenn Frey are the hybrids that created the genesis of the Eagles; and they provide their experiences on being Eagles; from the band's formation in the early 70's, to the band's bitter breakup in 1980, to their Eagle reunion in the 90's, to how they function as Eagles today; pretty much their life as Eagles recording artists and their lives in the fast lane and sporadically the slow lane. But the documentary also showed the perspectives of other new kids & old kids in Eagles town with interviews with other present & past Eagles including: Timothy B. Schmit, Don Felder, Joe Walsh, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. Even if you are not an Eagles fan, I would still highly recommend "A History of the Eagles" because of its expert depiction of life in a rock & roll band; which sure has its highs but at the same time those peaceful & easy feelings were far & few in between because of all the interpersonal friction between the band members. OK, I am about to be already gone. Now its for you to view this perfect piece of documentary filmmaking one of these nights; or days for that matter. Such a lovely place..... ***** Excellent
