Involvement with the Eagles
Most famous as a member of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Stan Lynch has often collaborated with Don Henley on solo material. He co-wrote Drivin' with Your Eyes Closed on Don Henley's Building the Perfect Beast album. He also co-wrote The Last Worthless Evening, How Bad Do You Want It and Gimme What You Got off of The End of the Innocence. On Inside Job, he co-wrote the majority of songs: Nobody Else in the World But You, Taking You Home, Workin' It, Goodbye to a River, They're Not Here, They're Not Coming, Damn It Rose, Miss Ghost, The Genie, and My Thanksgiving.

They started co-writing Learn to Be Still prior to the Hell Freezes Over reunion. When it was time to contribute new songs to that album, Don pulled it out. Lynch also co-produced that song. In addition to his songwriting contribution, Lynch has toured with the Eagles on occasion; he was one of the percussionists for Hell Freezes Over.
