The Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970's. Though most of its members came
from outside California, the group was closely identified with a country and folk tinged sound that initially found
favor in and around Los Angeles in the late '60s, as played by such bands as the Flying Burrito Brothers and Poco,
both of which contributed members to The Eagles. But the band also drew upon traditional rock and roll styles
and helped define the broadly popular rock sound eventually referred to as classic rock.
