The American musical acts in the same success tier as the Beatles are Elvis and Michael Jackson. But the most successful band . . . Eagles.

Five number-one singles and six number-one albums, six Grammy awards. 200 million record sales with two of the top-8 best-selling albums ever made. All 8 Eagles studio albums have gone Platinum with Hotel California at 26 times platinum. 8 of their 11 compilation albums also went platinum. 17 top-40 singles with 5 at number one.

Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Glen Frey have also had significant solo careers and collected another 3 Grammys, 35 top-40 singles, 6 #1 singles, and 5 platinum albums.

Did Don Felder deserve to be fired by the Eagles?
