Last night, longtime Eagles manager Irving Azoff introduced The History of the Eagles, Part One, at a film screening. He explained why the band felt this was the time to make the documentary by noting that they "had a lot of footage around that was aging like fine wine and we thought it was time to crack it open." He also said the film will be about three things - the Eagles, the Southern California music scene and the American dream.
The film will be released on DVD soon - there's no date set yet. However, if you're a Showtime subscriber, you'll get to see Part One, which ends with the band's 1980 breakup, starting February 15th. Part Two, which includes their reunion years, starts airing on the 16th.
