The Eagles were formed after serving as the backup band for which singer?
Linda Ronstadt is best known for a string of popular hits in the 1970s. She also assembled a band for her solo debut that ended up leaving to form the Eagles. Little did Linda Ronstadt know she was hatching Glenn Frey and Don Henley as the Eagles in the early 1970s when she hired them to play in her band and made them roommates while on tour. After touring together with Ronstadt in 1971, Frey and Henley formed the Eagles. It would be Glen Frey who gave the speech at Ronstadt’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
The correct answer is Linda Ronstadt.
