The Eagles have revealed that their business-like plan for world domination included “no Christmas cards”.

In the new issue of Uncut, out on Thursday (April 25), founding guitarist Bernie Leadon explains that the group wanted to keep their relationships simple.

“When we got together we defined our business plan: we wanted to be successful, world-famous, acclaimed and rich,” says Leadon.

“One of the first things Frey said was, ‘OK, let’s keep this simple. No Christmas cards.’ Did we go on holiday and call each other? No.”

In the new issue, the band, JD Souther and Jackson Browne unravel the making of the group’s pivotal second album, Desperado, a “cowboy record” recorded in west London.

The new issue of Uncut (dated June 2013) is out on Thursday (April 25).
