In 1973 Joe released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1976 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.
The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, earning five #1 U.S. singles and six GRAMMY® Awards.
