Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and one of the founders of the Eagles, Don Henley is celebrating his 71st birthday today. When Don first came to California from his native Texas, he stayed at fellow Texan Kenny Rogers house. Don then got a job in Linda Ronstadt’s backing band and that band became the Eagles.
Don has been the lead vocalist on many songs by the Eagles as well as his solo stuff. So here’s your question about Don singing: Do you prefer Eagles or solo?
Henley sang the lead vocals on Eagles hits such as “Witchy Woman”, “Desperado”, “Best of My Love”, “One of These Nights”, “Hotel California”, “Life in the Fast Lane”, and “The Long Run”, and his solo hits “Dirty Laundry”, “The Boys of Summer”, “All She Wants to Do Is Dance”, “The Heart of the Matter”, “The Last Worthless Evening”, “Sunset Grill”, “Not Enough Love in the World”, “New York Minute” and “The End of the Innocence”.
That’s a lot of hits.
Happy Birthday Don!!! (As you can see in this picture, Don knew we would ask that question so he is pondering it too….. Hey, it could happen.)
