While the “Witchy Woman” was started by Leadon, who was then a member of the Flying Burrito Brothers, it was finished by Henley. The Eagles’ song took inspiration from Zelda Fitzgerald’s life. Henley suffered from the flu and continued reading a book about the life of Zelda. In his flu delirium, he melded Zelda with women he had met at various bars.
