    I watched Don on MTV Unplugged DVD this morning and that bit of hair was playing up then too. He kept trying to tuck it behind his ear!

    Happy Anniversary to my favorite Don album, The End of the Innocence. This album was my first introduction to anything Eagles so it will always have a special place in my heart

    I'll second that but I'd also like to smack the cigarette
    out of his hand.
    How could you risk an instrument like that voice with that poison???

    Don's album "The End of the Innocence" was released 23 years ago today! This is my favorite Don album. It was also my first exposure to anything Eagles related

    This album is probably one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE albums, including the Eagles albums. Every song is pretty much a gem, but these all on one album makes it a TRUE MASTERPIECE. Henley at his best. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I had known Henley was an amazing lyricist, but this shows all his talents, bringing thoughtful lyrics with musicality that is different from the Eagles, and spectacular on his own.
    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE END OF THE INNOCENCE!

    During the interim years, I followed Henley closely, but didn't keep up with the others' solo work. I agree that this CD was amazing. The first time I heard "New York Minute" literally stopped me cold. I was frozen in place listening to the gorgeous lyrics and soaring harmonies. And then to contrast that with "I Will Not Go Quietly" where he rocks out with Axl Rose, wow! What a range. This CD is brilliant!

    HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY "THE END OF THE INNOCENCE"!!!

    Now, I going to have to agree that this is album is Don's solo masterpiece and is one of my favorite of all Eagles' solo albums. It's kind of funny, because I just posted in Glenn's Allnighter celebration thread before I came here and I notice I have very different comments to make here. While The Allnighter is my least favorite of Glenn's albums, I love his look during that era. However, The End of the Innocence is my favorite Don album, but his look during that era is my least favorite for him. Having said that, of course, I'm not shallow - I know it's really all about the music.

    I wrote a song-by-song review of the album earlier in this thread, but, as usual, I'll go ahead and list the songs from my favorite to least favorite here. We haven't been getting much participation lately, but if enough of you post your list, I'll compile the results as I usually do. So here goes ...

    1. The Heart of the Matter
    2. The End of the Innocence
    3. The Last Worthless Evening
    4. How Bad Do You Want It?
    5. I Will Not Go Quietly
    6. New York Minute
    7. If Dirt Were Dollars
    8. Little Tin God
    9. Gimme What You Got
    10. Shangri-La

    2. I Will Not Go Quietly
    3. The Heart of the Matter
    4. The Last Worthless Evening
    5. The End of the Innocence
    6. Little Tin God
    7. If Dirt Were Dollars
    8. How Bad Do You Want It?
    9. Gimme What You Got
    10. Shangri-La
