Eagles co-founder Don Henley is famous for a lot of things -- he's a fine songwriter, a gifted singer, and a darn good drummer, too. It seems he can also be pretty quick to round up his legal team when someone ticks him off.
Given the glut of tribute records released over the past couple of decades, it seems impossible that Jackson Browne hasn't gotten one yet -- but that oversight will be corrected on April 1, when an all-star assemblage of musicians comes together for the double-disc set 'Looking Into You: A Tribute to Jackson Browne.'
It's been nearly 13 years since Don Henley released a solo album, which has given him plenty of time to think -- and as it happens, his next release sounds like it'll find the longtime Eagle in a fairly reflective mood.
For the Eagles' Glenn Frey, popular singing televised contests like 'American Idol' and 'X Factor' are nothing more than an opportunity for singing hopefuls to take the stage and oversing. He has a message for its contestants: Tone it down a bit...
Eagles singer-songwriter and drummer Don Henley is releasing a new solo album in May, and in an interview to promote that upcoming work, he let slip that a former member of the Eagles will return to the band for an upcoming tour -- though he declined to say which one.
When Don Henley and Glenn Frey set about authorizing the new documentary 'History of the Eagles,' they took the unusual step of securing an Oscar-winning filmmaker to produce -- because, as Frey put it in a recent interview with the New York Times, "Our management sent me what they thought were some of the best music documentaries that had been done. And I wasn’t crazy about any of it."
The enduring success of the Eagles means that Don Henley doesn't need to work unless he wants to. And when that time comes, it's hard to get him to stop. In a new interview, he discussed his upcoming projects that will keep him busy for the next few years, which includes a new solo album and autobiography.
With the possible exception of Joe Walsh, the guys in the Eagles aren't exactly known for being talkative, and Don Henley tends to be the most taciturn of all -- so the fact that he recently decided to open up to Rolling Stone about the pair of new documentaries delving into the band's history must mean he really likes the movies.
