    When Glenn passed, Irving gave a statement to a newspaper stating Glenn's meds caused the Pneumonia and UC. If you listen to those commercials, they list both as a possible side effect from taking the medication.
    Dawn is right about the infection timeline from what info was given when he passed. It seems he caught a first bout of Pneumonia, was hospitalized, and the surgery could not be performed due to the Pneumonia. While still in the hospital Bob S. stated Glenn caught a more severe strain of Pneumonia and never recovered from that.

My opinion is that if people want to read the details they should and if they would rather not, then don't. We all have free will and freedom of choice.
    I feel the same way, although I hope it is ruled in the family's favor. I want to remember Glenn as that talented, handsome, funny and soulful guy. I have a hard time watching some of the interviews (like on The Dan Patrick Show) where you can see his failing health.

    Update on the lawsuit. The doctor being sued says Glenn's future earnings wouldn't have been worth $12 million.

    I had wondered what was going on with this. Thanks, CAinOH.

    I say, of course he could have made that much. And I don't think that you could make a proper estimate of future income simply by looking at previous years' income. Think of the potential from a successful musical, or a book or video releases (if he had chosen to do so). So many possibilities.
    I'm glad Cindy insisted on confidentiality. It's no one's business.

    All you have to do is look at the kind of money the guys are pulling in now sans Glenn to see that he would have been making money hand over fist for the past two years, had he lived.

    This doctor must be afraid of losing if he's trying to minimize the damages....

    Would be interesting to know how much Don Henley earned during the last couple of years touring with the Eagles and through other revenue generating sources eg. Concert merchandise, new album releases, etc. Henley and Frey were co-founders of the band so I think it could be helpful in terms of determining potential lost income.

    Dawn, I totally agree. I think Glenn could have made much more than the $12 million stated. They were the 4th highest grossing tour last year according to an article posted on the Border. You also have to figure merchandising and record sales, which included the 40th Annv. release of HC. I also think he was worth much more than $90 million. If Don's income is estimated at over $200 million than I would assume Glenn's would be close to that. if it is one thing the Eagles knew how to do, it was make money. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that, just using it as a point to show Glenn would probably gross more than $12 million.

    PS - Do Don, Joe & Tim split the same amount for touring ? Or, does Don make more as the lone surviving original Eagle ? Just wondering.....

    The article doesnít provide a lot of details about disputing the $12 million claim other than Cindy not turning over financial records, in which case itís understandable why the defendant is fighting it. That being said, didnít Lindsey Buckingham claim that he lost out on $14 million by not going out on the latest FM tour? It seems perfectly reasonable that Glenn would have made a similar amount had he been able to tour this past year.

    Thanks for posting, CAinOH.

    Iím not sure if weíre talking about income or net worth here. But to me it makes sense that Donís ​net worth is greater than Glennís (estate). Don sold a lot more records during his solo career than Glenn did plus he toured more. For example, compare their concert review threads in the Eagles On the Road sub-forum. That was just in the last 10-12 years. I could be wrong but I donít think Glenn toured very much in the 80s either, which were his peak success years, solo-wise. I doubt his acting stints made up for it, financially-speaking. He also probably had to pay a hefty divorce settlement to his first wife.

    Interesting question about the split between Don, Joe and Timothy. My guess is Don makes more for the same reasons he and Glenn made more for the HFO tour; however I would think Joe has a lot more leverage these days.

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