Don Henley first revealed that a former member was coming back to the group in a February radio interviewer. All that was known was that it was either Leadon and Randy Meisner as he came out and said it was not Don Felder.

This week, Joe Walsh told Billboard that it was, in fact, Leadon. “Bernie’s brilliant. “I never really got a chance to play with him, but we’ve been in contact. We see him from time to time, and I’m really glad he’s coming because it’s going to take the show up a notch, and I’m really looking forward to playing with him, finally.”

Leadon was a member of Dillard and Clark and the Flying Burrito Brothers before becoming a founding member of the Eagles. He stayed with the group until 1975 when he became upset with the direction the band was taking away from country-rock. Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975), one of the biggest selling albums of all-time, covers the years that Leadon was with the band.

Walsh implied in the interview that the History of the Eagles tour would be different from past shows, using archival footage and a number of rarely played songs.

Joe also said that he has been working on a blues album with Dr. John, Robert Randolph, Keb’ Mo’, Jim Keltner, Mike Finnigan and Tal Wilkenfeld.
