'Here’s a very rare early piece that Cameron (Crowe) did with the Eagles for Zoo World magazine. This July, 1973 interview is just with Glenn Frey and focuses on the recent success of the band. Topics include their latest album Desperado, touring, working with Jackson Browne and J.D. Souther. Enjoy!'
"Why do you think Eagles have been able to break as big as they have while Poco is still bubbling beneath the surface?
Boy, that’s hard to say. I imagine it’s an incredible combination of things that I shouldn’t make a limp-wristed attempt at trying to analyze. I’m pretty befuddled by it myself. Not our success as much as Poco’s lack of success. They had Hollywood set on fire when they were first together. I’ve told you before about how I used to hang around them and watch them rehearse with my mouth hanging open. I really don’t know. Time sure changes a lot of things. You want to edge your way to the top. You never just want to slam-bang your way up there because the only way to go from there is down. You want to take your time getting up and enjoy yourself on the way."
