    Jess & Lou, I am thrilled that you had such a terrific time! I talked to Kelly today and she told me all about the show last night, including the fact that you each got a pic. That is wonderful!
    Plus, no UPS--the man looks gorgeous--GORGEOUS!!!!--in black!

    An insignificant error, you might be tempted to surmise. But for a guy like Henley, this was no error.

    Indeed, it must be difficult – no matter what the paycheck – looking at a roomful of mostly gray hair and the inevitable downslide of one's career.

    And perhaps this, though unspoken, was what the night was about. It was about an aging rocker-poet coming to terms with his own demise in front of an aging audience confronting its own.

    “This is a show for has-beens,” a woman said with an air of regret before the show began. I didn’t want to honor her repellant suggestion. But in the end, she was right. Time, no matter the magnitude of talent, will not be denied.

    Surely Don Henley knew – and knows – as much.
    ************************************

    Overall a fairly good review, but I think the writer must've been feeling HIS own mortality a bit. Has-beens? I don't think so!

    Black button-down and faded jeans--YES!!!
    I straight out do not believe the 'fans' seem to scatter bit. These are some of the harshest comments I have ever read, and as for the 'downslide of one's career' that is laughable.

    If the guy didn't want to honour the 'repellent suggestion' why then did he agree with it?

    I am just glad that Troub & Peek saw through this rubbish. The photos were superb.

    Peek and Troub, sounds like you both had a fantastic time together. Both nights seemed to have went well. Thank for the pics! I'm so happy to hear that Don was working the crowd and having fun too.
