In a delightful surprise for fans, the Eagles recently graced their concerts in Los Angeles with the presence of a special guest, none other than longtime collaborator J.D. Souther. The performances, held at the Kia Forum in L.A. on consecutive evenings, featured Souther joining forces with the iconic band to deliver renditions of hits they co-wrote, including classics like “Best of My Love,” “New Kid in Town,” and “Heartache Tonight.
J.D. Souther has a rich history with the Eagles, dating back to the late ’60s when he moved to Los Angeles and crossed paths with Glenn Frey. Their collaboration extended beyond musical endeavors, as they became roommates and released an album together titled “Longbranch Pennywhistle.” While Souther pursued a solo career, he continued to contribute his songwriting talents to various artists, including Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Christopher Cross, and James Taylor.
Reflecting on his association with the Eagles
Souther shared his perspective in a 2020 interview with Acoustic Storm.
“I think I was in the band for one day,” he recalled. “And, to be frank, they didn’t need me. They were a perfectly well-rounded, self-contained band. I figured we were going to keep writing together anyway, so I think we all got the best of that situation, the best possible outcome.”
The collaboration between J.D. Souther and the Eagles continues to resonate with fans, providing a nostalgic and enjoyable experience at the recent concerts in Los Angeles.
