    RIP Gambler. Thanks for discovering Don and his band and took a chance on them. We would had never gotten the Eagles and Don would had never met Glenn.
    I thought Don might issue a statement about Kenny. Thanks for posting that, shun.

    So sad that he's passed, but as Dolly Parton said in her tribute, he's in a better place now.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Beautiful words from Don about Kenny. Thank God he took an interest in a bunch of small town kids who wanted to make it big. They didn't but it gave us the Eagles. it is nice that Don got a chance to thank Kenny and say good bye.
    Shun - Thanks for posting this.

    Such a lovely tribute by Don about Kenny, who played such a key role in the band’s history.

    *****

    On another note, it appears Don gave permission allowing a Spanish version of “Desperado” be used in a documentary. This documentary is about two 1915 shooting deaths in south Texas and is titled Border Bandits. “Kirby” is Kirby Warnock, the film’s director. I assume the guy didn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to use the song.

    Because of its Hispanic influences, the film demanded Mexican-themed music, but the only problem was that Kirby did not speak Spanish and was not totally familiar with Tex-Mex music, save for the cojunto radio stations he heard growing up. Faced with this dilemma, he went back to his roots—rock and roll. "I've always been a big fan of the Eagles' album, Desperado, so I contacted Don Henley and asked him if we could do a Spanish version of the title song. He gave us permission and basically said that it would be no problem for him to get us the clearances," recalls Warnock.
