    I love this song, one of my favorites ever. The Grammy was well deserved!

    The 20th, Dreamer? Iím younger than I thought!

    Seriously, though, this was a wonderful honor for Don and he was very deserving.

    I knew it was 30 years, but must have had 2020 on my mind. But, I'm all over knocking 10 years off my age.

    Happy 31st Birthday to the End of the Innocence album. My favorite of Don's. Great songs on there.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE END OF THE INNOCENCE!!!

    This is Don at his finest IMHO. I love this album too - it is my favorite of all Don's solo albums and my second favorite Eagles solo album of all time.

    I appreciate the title track so much more now that Iím older. Beautiful. I remember ďIf Dirt Were DollarsĒ getting solid radio play back in the day on the local rock station...a solid album, But not a fan of the hair...90s are hard to look at fashion wise, imo.

    Happy Anniversary to EOTI.

    Not my favorite Don album, but I do prefer it over I Can't Stand Still, Inside Job, and Cass County. It's a little too stripped back for my tastes, leaning more on the pop/rock sentiment, but I can appreciate the songwriting. I prefer the more ear candy radio hits like TBOS, ASWTDID, DL, SG, etc. Count me in as a synthesizer-laden Building The Perfect Beast fan. I can't get enough of that 80s sound that some love to hate.
