One of the best selling bands in music history is no more. Following the death of co-founder of Glenn Frey last January, bandmate Don Henley has announced the breakup of The Eagles.

In a new interview with BBC, Henley explained, “That was the final farewell. I don’t think you’ll see us performing again. I think that was probably it. I think it was an appropriate farewell.”

To dates, the Eagles have sold 150 million albums worldwide and earned six Grammys. Two of their albums, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California, are among the 20 best-selling albums in US history. For their efforts, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

The Eagles’ final live performance came at the 2016 Grammy Awards in tribute to Frey. Watch them perform “Take It Easy”:
