Home Music Don Henley: Before Glenn Frey’s Illness, Eagles Had Been Planning “Hotel California”...

In an interview with the BBC, Don Henley revealed something interesting yesterday. Before Glenn Frey fell ill last fall, the Eagles had been planning a “Hotel California” tour for this summer. “Obviously,” Henley says, “that’s not happening now.”

Henley intimates that the Eagles will not fly again as a touring act or anything else. But Frey’s death is fresh, and he may change his mind in time. The Who, Led Zeppelin, and other groups have gone on working after a founder’s death. After all, there are other people involved.

Henley is getting ready to do solo shows with Carole King in London. My guess is they’ll tour the U.S. next. I have a couple of guilty pleasure Don Henley solo songs actually– “Heart of the Matter” and “Taking You Home.” It would be swell to hear them live.

Here’s the interview:
