However, in his   memoir, Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles , Felder claimed that Frey "came over while we were playing 'The Best of My Love' and said: 'F**k you. I'm gonna kick your ass when we get off stage.'" While the evening did not end in any actual Felder-on-Frey or Frey-on-Felder violence, Felder did smash an acoustic guitar backstage. The next day, Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit called Frey to see what was up, which is when Frey told him the band was done. But while you can check out of the Eagles, you can never leave — the band reunited for a massively successful tour and live album in 1994.

Right: Billy Smith, The Colonel and Elvis all looking jovial in June 1967- about three months after the 'Clambake' incident.
