Happy Birthday to Don Henley!!! Henley and the late-Glenn Frey co-founded the Eagles in 1971, and are responsible for the band’s best loved songs, including “Hotel California,” “One Of These Nights,” “Desperado,” “Best Of My Love,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Take It To The Limit,” “New Kid In Town,” “The Long Run,” and MANY more.
Earlier this month, ESPN aired the new Eagles concert Live From The Forum MMXVIII (2018). The band, which features Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, hit the Forum in Los Angeles for three sold-out, critically-acclaimed concerts on September 12th, 14th, and 15th, 2018. Highlights from all three shows have now been compiled for the new 26-song live album and concert film set for release on October 16th through Rhino in a variety of audio and video formats, including Blu-ray, CD, Vinyl, and Streaming.
Since originally parting ways with the Eagles in 1980, Don Henley has scored eight Top 40 hits — including the Top Tens: “Leather And Lace” – with Stevie Nicks, “Dirty Laundry, “The Boys Of Summer, “All She Wants To Do Is Dance,” and “The End Of The Innocence.”
In April 2011, Henley was honored in Washington, D.C. at the 10th annual Grammys on The Hill for his advocacy on behalf of the music community. Henley was awarded the inaugural Recording Artists Coalition award.
