Attracted to the songwriting of founding Eagle member Glenn Frey, Leadon joined the band in 1971, using his boyhood choir training to work out the intricate harmony parts on the Eagles' first few albums. He also co-wrote, with Don Henley, the band's second hit, "Witchy Woman."
After indulging in the rock-star life for a few years, and while caught up in a wild relationship with then-Governor Ronald Reagan's daughter Patti , Leadon left the band amid much acrimony in 1975, reportedly announcing his resignation by pouring a beer over Frey's head.
