The Eagles

Barbara Charone, Hit Parader, January 1975

IF YOU thought blue jeans and sneakers went out with the sixties, better check out the Eagles. Raised on a steady diet of wonder bread and Dobie Gillis, the Eagles are the perfect foil of seventies rock trends towards mascara, flash and boredom.

Total word count of piece: 1978
