    All four of the Beatles will certainly die in the U.S., but that doesn’t make them Americans.

    New York Minute is a top 10 all time.

    “What the head makes cloudy, the heart makes very clear” is something I said, without regret, as I signed my divorce papers.

    "End of the Innocence" is, I think, Henley's best song in his solo career, though it wasn't my favorite until a few years later. That song grows on you bigly.

    "Desperado" and "Sad Cafe" are my favorite Henley songs with the Eagles. Hard to pick a favorite there.

    Too bad Henley is such a prick, though. He's always had his people wipe his stuff off YouTube, and that includes clips of his stellar performance later in his career at Red Rocks. His raw voice, stippled even more by time, was never better. What a shame Henley took that concert out of circulation. Probably lost a lot of new fans by doing that.

    A buddy of mine is an investigative reporter and a really damn good one. He's reported from war zones. He's gone undercover with militia groups. He's gone into Mexico and done undercover stories on smugglers.

    He says the most intimidating interview he's done was with Don Henley.
    Chef2, exmediahack and Slacker like this.

    The first band in Starman's list was there before the British Invasion.

    What was intimidating about Don Henley?

    I've always wondered why Don Henley seems so perpetually pissed off. Seems like he's screwed over more people than he's been screwed over.

    God complex. All his success took over his brain.

    You seem to have misspelled "Sunset Grille" as his best song.

    Easy trivia. Who co-wrote, co-produced, and played on End of the Innocence?
