Reporter: Steve Kroft, CBS 60 Minutes

Producers: Graham Messick and Michael Karzis

Here's a trivia question for you.

What's the biggest selling album ever in America?

No, it's not the Beatles, the Stones or Michael Jackson - give up?

It's the Eagles Greatest Hits 1971-75; and it's still selling strongly.

So you can imagine the excitement a few months ago when they released their first new album in almost 30 years.

But like everything the Eagles have ever done, it wasn't an easy or peaceful process.

Which is probably why you've never seen them sit down together for a television interview.

Just this once, though, they've broken the habit of a lifetime and made an exception for Steve Kroft.
