The band broke up in 1980 and each member tried their hand at a solo career with a smattering of success. The most lucrative was that of Don Henley who had hits like Days Of Summer in the late 80s. Glenn Frey also had a few hits, including classic 80s tune The Heat Is On.
The band got back together in the mid-80s and have performed together on and off ever since. In 2007 they released their first studio album for nearly 30 years, Long Road Out Of Eden. They've since won two Grammys.
