When Showtime broadcast it's two-night special on The Eagles, there was plenty still left on the cutting room floor -- not a surprise, given the longevity of the band and the sheer volume of stories of what life was like behind the scenes.
David Spero, though, has no trouble filling in the blanks. As the manager for Joe Walsh and an insider for the Eagle's landmark "Hell Freezes Over" tour, Spero talked with WONE's Jeff Kinzbach about some of the items that didn't quite make it to the special.
Chief among the items: the absolute lack of love between bandmates Glenn Frey and Don Henley, the bandmates who truly exemplify the band. Their contentious relationship got to the point, Spero says, where they actually rode in separate vans, stayed in separate hotels, and took great pains to live lives apart.
It even extended to when Henley wanted out, but went to court over the split. It was determined that, as a member of the corporation that was the Eagles, Henley was still entitled to share in the profits. Which he continues to do, even as a solo performer.
