    Yep - Just to clarify, I see nothing wrong with Don or any of the guys playing for these kinds of events and making money for it. If people want to fork out money to hire entertainers for private events, then go for it.

    Wow.

    Let’s back up the truck a minute. This is what I posted earlier in the thread, emphasis added.

    Shouldnt he be working on that HC Broadway show and/or his memoirs?
    Nowhere in my comment did I say there was anything wrong with Don playing a private gig. How anyone could have read it that way is puzzling to me, especially after I have made my opinion quite clear about Don being free to pursue his career however he wants. At this stage of his life, having just turned 72 and returned from a European tour, it would seem he would want to kick back some and relax. That is all. Maybe I should have been more clear but I honestly didn’t expect backlash about a rather benign post.

    Of course it is well known he and the band as well as other musicians have performed at private parties and corporate gigs. Hence, the word “still.”

    The last sentence was added as a tongue-in-cheek way of saying I wish he would get on with these other projects, although of course he could very well be working on them at this time for all we know.

    Apparently now posting a casual comment is equivalent to making a “big deal” about something. While I’m glad the post stimulated some conversation, it’s unfortunate it came at the expense of being misconstrued.

    BTW, I heard on the radio that Don and Gwen sang HC together at the party.

    Don was at the KCH last night to honor Linda. Articles are pointing toward Don just introducing her and maybe doing the voiceover for the video montage.

    On stage, Don Henley choked up while introducing the segment for vocal powerhouse Ronstadt, 73, who rose from the L.A. coffee house scene to release more than 30 albums and win 10 Grammys between 1969-2009. She stopped performing in 2009 after illness (diagnosed much later as supranuclear palsy) began to rob her of her vocal range.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/enter...53e_story.html

    The roster of stars who turned out for the efficiently produced three-hour event, hosted by previous honoree LL Cool J, surpassed some other recent years: The list included Steven Spielberg, Maura Tierney and Pierce Brosnan for Field; Cedric the Entertainer and Joseph Gordon Levitt for “Sesame Street”; and Don Henley and Underwood for Ronstadt, with Underwood singing the Ronstadt songs “Blue Bayou” and “When Will I Be Loved.”

    https://wtop.com/entertainment/2019/...rth-wind-fire/
    Don Henley took the stage to describe how he and Glenn Frey got their start as backup musicians for Ronstadt before forming their own group, The Eagles. He fondly recalled Ronstadt covering the first song they wrote together, “Desperado.”
    “Outwardly, she had a youthful vulnerability, but on the inside she was a powerful and determined woman who knew where she was going,” Henley said.

    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

    Shun - Thanks for finding this. Wow, beautiful words by Don. It must have been very hard for Don to talk about being in Linda's back-up band with Glenn and their writing of “Desperado” together. I can't wait to see this.

    Thanks for these tidbits, Shun!

    Yes, I'm sure it was hard for Don to do this, especially talking about Glenn too.

    That's a nice little write-up. Thanks for linking to it, shun!

    Here's something I didn't know.

    A quote from JD Souther: "I have to give [Don] full credit for that forgiveness theme. The first time he sang that forgiveness chorus over and over to me, I didn't get it. Kind of went, 'Yeah, I guess.' And then it sort of sunk [in] that it was exactly the point of the song."

    So true. That's what really makes the song.

    Campbell talks about how proud Don was of the song, then adds: "A lot of people like that song. A lot of girls like it."

    Yes. Yes indeed. lol
    The first time he sang that forgiveness chorus over and over to me, I didn't get it. Kind of went, 'Yeah, I guess.' And then it sort of sunk it that it was exactly the point of the song.

    From USA Today - Don Henley reflects on the band's "creative peak."
