Eagles

EAGLES autographs. British pop quartet active from 1958 until the mid-1960s. They were led by lead guitarist Terry Clarke d2008 who used a homebuilt custom instrument with drummer Rod Meacham d2002 / bassist Michael Brice and Johnny Payne on rhythm guitar. Playing primarily instrumental rock they began their career in Bristol playing local venues. They were launched into the world of professional music in 1962 upon being noticed by composer Ron Grainer (best known for his theme to Doctor Who). The group contributed to the Some People soundtrack and became Grainer's protégés, recording new versions of some of his film score work like the theme of the Maigret television series. The Some People soundtrack reached No2 on the EP charts and remained on the charts for a stay of 21 weeks. After releasing the singles "Bristol Express" and "Exodus", they embarked on a major tour of England along with more established acts Del Shannon and Stevie Wonder. The tour lasted much of 1963, during which their debut album, Smash Hits From The Eagles was released in the UK and the United States. The following year brought their most successful single and the one for which they are best remembered today, a vocal rendition of "Wishin and Hopin". Unfortunately, 1964 also brought a pair of tragedies which ultimately led to the end of the group ; Ron Grainer went blind and Rod Meacham suffered a nervous breakdown. Soon after (in late 1964) the group went their separate ways.
