    Happy 35th Birthday to Don's very first solo album, I Can't Stand Still.

    At least, I really didn't like this album, but it has really grown on me.

    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

    Wow, 35 years since Don Henley launched his debut solo album and set the world on fire. This is probably my favorite DH album.

    Happy Anniversary to "I Can't Stand Still"!

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    I'm a big fan of I Can't Stand Still, one of the first albums I owned on vinyl AND CD. I'd rank it just below BTPB among DH's solo efforts.

    Back in my English-teaching days (around 1990), I played "Johnny Can't Read" for my seniors during a Satire unit, and got a lot of glazed looks. A couple of kids got it/liked it, though! Probably my favorite song off the album - so Early 80s!!!

    Happy 37th Birthday to I Can't Stand Still.

    This album has really grown on me. I still laugh at the second verse of Long Way Home. The heat don't work. The toaster don't work. The car don't work. Dang does anything work. He's having a bad day.

    Other than Dirty Laundry, I love Long Way Home, Talking To the Moon, You Better Hang Up, The Uncloudy Day, and I Can't Stand Still,

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO I CAN'T STAND STILL!!!

    I love this album - it is my second favorite of Don's solo albums. My favorite tracks are Dirty Laundry, Lilah, and Long Way Home. My three least favorites are An Unclouded Day, I Can't Stand Still, and Johnny Can't Read.

    HAPPY BELATED ANNIVERSARY I CAN'T STAND STILL!

    I really like this album. I was just listening to "Talking to the Moon" on my iPod the other day, and wow, it moves me so freaking much, I get goosebumps. One of my absolute faves of his. There are several other songs I also like a lot, but that one is incredible. ICSS is a terrific effort right out of the gate for Don Henley.
