Here’s a look at 10 amazing Eagles songs not sung by Glenn Frey and Don Henley:

These songs showcase the Eagles’ extensive talent beyond the renowned duo of Frey and Henley, providing fans an opportunity to delve into the diverse aspects of the band’s musical evolution.

“Bitter Creek” – Desperado (1973)

Bernie Leadon takes the reins on this track, showcasing his traditionalist approach to country rock. The song starts reserved but takes flight with harmonizing vocals from the entire group.

“Love Will Keep Us Alive” – Hell Freezes Over (1994)

Originally stemming from a late-’80s supergroup, this song resurfaced during the Eagles’ surprising ’90s comeback. Sung by Timothy B. Schmit, it marked Don Felder’s last contribution before his departure.

“Last Good Time in Town” – Long Road Out of Eden (2006)

Joe Walsh, with his distinct style, brings a touch of nostalgia to this track. Co-written with J.D. Souther, the song highlights Walsh’s enduring presence in the Eagles.

“Train Leaves Here This Morning” – Eagles (1972)

Bernie Leadon revisits a song he co-wrote with Gene Clark, offering a signature moment for him in the Eagles. The track reflects the evolving landscape of country-rock during the band’s early years.

“In the City” – The Long Run (1979)

Joe Walsh, known for his unique musical style, wasn’t a dominant presence on this album. Still, “In the City” stands out with Walsh’s credited co-write and a sound that is unmistakably him.

“Is It True?” – On the Border (1974)

Randy Meisner’s growth as a songwriter is evident in this love-lorn ballad. While Frey adds a sharp lead guitar, the song showcases Meisner’s ability to step out from behind the shadows of Frey and Henley.

“I Can’t Tell You Why” – The Long Run (1979)

Timothy B. Schmit steps into the spotlight in this track, featuring a notable guitar solo by Glenn Frey. The song’s release was delayed, contributing to the extended timeline of the album’s production.

“Try and Love Again” – Hotel California (1976)

Randy Meisner shines on this tucked-away gem, delivering a soaring anthem about belief against all odds. Unfortunately, this marked Meisner’s final co-writing credit and lead vocal with the band.

“Pretty Maids All in a Row” – Hotel California (1976)

Eagles completed their shift from shaggy roots band to full-on rockers as Joe Walsh took over for Bernie Leadon. “Pretty Maids All in a Row” couldn’t have been more different—an emotional meditation on regret with a mournful slide solo by Walsh.

“Take It to the Limit” – One of These Nights (1975)

This soulful ballad features the heart-rending high notes of Randy Meisner. Despite the pressure, the song became Eagles’ highest charting single at the time. It eventually led to Meisner’s departure, with the vocal later taken over by Glenn Frey and then Vince Gill.
