“Their pleasing, melodious unit is composed of four your men of about equal musical weight; they all have very nice voices and together they make very nice, luminous harmonies that they place, carefully, on a ground of guitars.”
The Province (Vancouver, British Columbia) – Aug. 8, 1972
“Promptly at 8 o’clock, guitarist vocalist Bernie Leadon took his quartet on stage and hollered, ‘Hey man, we’re the Eagles’.”
I wonder if this was Bernie or actually Glenn Frey that made this introduction.
