LOS ANGELES - Simon Cowell, who is Susan Boyle's manager, has just disclosed to the news media that he has signed the California-based band, The Eagles to be Miss Boyle's backup band on her upcoming summer concert tour.
Cowell added that the Eagles have now come full circle since back in the early 70s they were Linda Ronstadt's backup band before going on to world-wide fame.
He stated that he has spoken to Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, Neil Young, and Neil Simon and that each has agreed to write one or two songs for Susan's upcoming first album tentatively titled, "Susan Boyle - Boiling Over With Talented Talent."
When Cowell was asked if he was going to give Miss Boyle a complete glamour makeover, he replied that he was not.
He then disclosed that the reason that he decided not to was because if he did give her a glamour makeover he would merely be turning her into just another Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, or Christina Aguilera.
Don Henley and Glenn Frey, two of the founding members of the Eagles, have both said that they are really looking forward to entering the recording studio and singing backup vocals for Susan.
Frey remarked that when he first heard that Miss Boyle was going to be touring with The Rolling Stones that he did get a little bit jealous. He then remarked, "But hey, We've got her now."
Henley says that he can hardly wait to tour with Susan because he heard that she knows a lot of adult-themed jokes.
He also heard that she is an excellent cook and that she has already stated that she plans to do some good old-fashioned English cooking for the members of her backup band.
Simon Cowell has stated that he has chosen two of the songs that Miss Boyle will be recording for her album and the songs are both old Eagles songs "New Kid In Town" and "Life In The Fast Lane."
