Photo Archive: Eagles, July 6th, 1972

Photographer: Gary Elam
Location: Backstage at Community Concourse/Golden Hall in San Diego, CA.

This early photo of the band was originally published in November 1972 in an article by Cameron Crowe in the underground magazine The San Diego Door. His friend, Gary Elam, took the photo. Crowe mistakenly recalled in 2015 that the photo was taken at the San Diego Civic Theater when the Eagles opened for Procol Harum, but the venue was actually Community Concourse.

L-R: Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner, Don Henley, and Bernie Leadon.
