    Thanks, Soda. And for what it's worth, I think you had very normal reactions for someone that age. I mean what average American teenager wouldn't begrudge that lifestyle. I mean - are you kidding me - I have to buy my CD's on the black market! And I won't even go there about the black abaya!

    lol! Yeah, it was normal for a teen - so is immaturity.

    There are a couple of other threads I could put this in, but this one's as good as any: I'm so disappointed the video for "The End of the Innocence" wasn't released on the new "Best of Henley" DVD. All I can think of is that there was some kind of external circumstance - perhaps a copyright problem, as I believe the music videos are not actually copyrighted to the artist - that made them unable to include it. I doubt they would leave it off willingly as they probably did for Johnny Can't Read (although I have no problem with that video).

    The End of the Innocence was released on June 20, 1989. Can you believe it's 20 years old? Soon it will be old enough to drink.

    Happy birthday, End of the Innocence!
    If it 'lived' over here it WOULD be old enough to drink!! 18's the age!

    Thanks for sharing that story, Soda. It must have been hard for you at the time, especially being a teenager and leaving your friends.

    I'm disappointed EOTI isn't on the new dvd, too. One of his best!

    Wow, it's finally old enough to drink!

    Happy birthday to the album which contains my personal favorite Henley song, Heart of the Matter, as well as some other outstanding tracks such as the title number.

    Love those screenshots!

    Happy Belated Birthday to The End of the Innocence!

    Sorry this is late, but I was away last week on the anniversary date. I absolutely love this album and rank it among one of my favorite Eagles solo albums. It is a near masterpiece, IMHO. I did a song-by-song review on the anniversary last year, so I won't repeat it here. For those of you interested, there were some good comments made about the album in that thread. Here is the link:
