The Eagles

07/30/1980 : On this date in 1980, Glenn Frey and Don Felder spent an entire concert in Long Beach, California taunting each other between songs about how they would beat each other up after the show. Some reports claim Frey said, 'only three more songs until I kick your ass pal.' When the show ended, a fight ensued. Felder smashed his guitar backstage and stormed off, effectively ending the The Long Run tour and breaking up the band for the next 14 years. Frey and Felder would reunite but Felder eventually left the band in a dispute over money.
