The 1976 album “Hotel California” would be the groups most successful album and is widely considered one of the top albums in music history. That album would see the departure of Randy Meisner and the addition of bass player Timothy B. Schmit to the band.
The band released the album “The Long Run” in 1979 and then abruptly broke up in 1980 with each member going on to pursue solo careers.
