    ...Well it sure makes you wonder the things that some people will say. They can see black and white but they don't seem to notice the grey...

    Fantastic! Sounds like it will be the current members only.

    I have a friend who works this event every year and is backstage with the honorees, perhaps I should volunteer my services??

    Thank you DivineDon and Shun for the heads up. Fortunately, we have our ways of independantly getting information, the Twitterverse has exploded with it! It's an incredible honor and I've never been able to figure out why they've not received it before now.

    ETA: Tickets for this event are not yet available, and a time has not yet been set. The Kennedy Center doesn't know when the information will be available.

    Wow! Indeed what an honor, and of course, the guys deserve it! I wonder why only the 4 current members being honored? Seems like they'd want all 7 members to be recognized. . Oh well, at least they're being honored!

    Yehaw!!!! Finally!!! I guess all those years of trying to get them honorees, its finally happens. Joe and Don's page posted this statement.

    The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts today announced that the Eagles will be among 6 honorees who will receive the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors. The Honors Gala will be recorded for broadcast on the CBS Network for the 38th consecutive year as a two-hour primetime special on Tuesday, December 29 at 9:00 p.m.

    "We are deeply grateful to have been named a Kennedy Center honoree. The members of the Eagles hail from different regions of this great nation and we feel very fortunate that our music has been embraced by people from all walks of life, all over the world. Popular music is one of America's greatest exports a bridge that spans geographical and cultural boundaries. We are truly humbled to have been able to be a part of this global connection. Many thanks to our fans, our fellow artists and the Kennedy Center for this recognition.

    Great news, but I'm not looking forward to all the complaints about which members will be honored.
