The Eagles

Formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1971, this highly successful country/rock unit was formed by musicians drawn from singer Linda Ronstadt’s backing group. Of the original quartet, Bernie Leadon (Bernard Leadon, 19 July 1947, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA; guitar/vocals) boasted the most prodigious pedigree, having embraced traditional country music with the Scottsville Squirrel Barkers, before gaining significant rock experience as a member of Hearts And Flowers, Dillard And Clark and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Randy Meisner (b. 8 March 1946, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, USA; bass/vocals) was formerly of Poco and Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band; Glenn Frey (b. 6 November 1948, Detroit, Michigan, USA; guitar/vocals) had recorded as half of Longbranch Pennywhistle; while Don Henley (b. Donald Hugh Henley, 22 July 1947, Gilmer, Texas, USA; drums/vocals) had led Texas-based aspirants Shiloh. Such pedigrees ensured interest in the new venture, which was immediately signed to David Geffen’s nascent Asylum Records label.

Lyrics For: Life In The Fast Lane

    He was a hard-headed man he was brutally handsome
    and she was terminally pretty
    she held him up and he held for ransom
    in the heart of the cold, cold city
    he had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
    they said he was ruthless said he was crude
    they had one thing in common: they were good in bed
    she'd say, "faster, faster. "the lights are turning red."
    Life in the fast lane surely make you lose your mind
    life in the fast lane
    Eager for action and hot for the game
    the comming attraction, the drop of a name
    they knew all the right people; they took all the right pills
    they threw outrageous parties; they paid heavenly bills
    there were lines on the mirror, lines on her face
    she pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race
    out every evenin' until it was light
    he was too tired to make it; she was too tired to fight about it.
    Life in the fast lane surely make you lose your mind
    life in the fast lane
    life in the fast lane everything all the time
    life in the fast lane
    Blowin' and burnin' blinded by thirst
    they didn't see the stop sign; took a turn for the worst
    she said, "listen, baby. you can hear the engine ring.
    "we've been up and down this highway; haven't seen a god-damn thing."
    he said, "call the doctor. i think i'm gonna crash."
    "the doctor say he's coming but you gotta pay in cash."
    they were rushing down that freeway; messed around and got lost
    they didn't care they were just dyin' to get off.
    And it was life in the fast lane
    surely make you lose your mind
    life in the fast lane
    life in the fast lane everything all the time
    life in the fast lane
