While the legal battle played out, the singer mended fences with the Eagles, a development that was instrumental in the 1994 settling of the lawsuit.

The excitement surrounding the concert series should come as no surprise given the millions of Don Henley fans. Dulcimer masters Dana Hamilton and Bonnie Carol brought down the rain as the star, guests and band left the stage. It falls somewhere between that, since his simmering anger -- always apparent but raised to the surface on his solo records -- still can be heard, which makes him seem a little cranky on occasion, when he gets carried away with his temper. In all of the previous Don Henley concerts they have always brought opening acts with them.
He spent a year at Stephen F. Henley has also played a founding role in several environmental and political causes, most notably the Walden Woods Project. Singer Linda Ronstadt contracted Frey to assemble a touring band, so he asked Henley to join him, along with guitarist Bernie Leadon and bassist Randy Meisner, and this quartet supported the singer just once -- at a July 1971 show at Disneyland -- but they did back Ronstadt on her self-titled 1972 album. This goes for both the normal tickets when anyone can buy them as well as the presale tickets. We have seats available for every single one of their currently scheduled dates.

Since 1994, he has divided his musical activities between the Eagles and his solo career. Tune-in on December 19th to see this classic Christmas episode. For the first time in their concert history is just going to be just the band playing two complete sets with a break in between the sets. His first solo release, 1982's I Can't Stand Still, was a moderate seller. It was also nominated for a Grammy. On the heels of this success, Henley slowly became entangled in a dispute over his record contract with Geffen Records, culminating in the label's 1993 breach-of-contract suit against the singer. Henley provided the voice of Henry Faust in Media:Randy Newman's Faust a 1993 musical which was released on compact disc that year.
After Hell Freezes Over, the Eagles became a going concern, encompassing regular concerts and, in 2007, a double-disc album designed in part to be the band's last. Members of the band have said that in this day and age it seems that increasing any quality is the new normal and they are going to be doing their best to make things as fair as possible for their true fans. The latest series of 2019 Don Henley tour performances are being hailed as triumphant and incredible. It would have been rather embarrassing if was trying to run with the young boys, and he sounds very comfortable settling into a role that is something less than an old master and something more than a crotchety old-timer.

As the Eagles rolled on, Henley continued with his solo career. He is known for his rusty, raw voice that is instantly recognizable. Four years after this successful run of singles, Henley returned in 1989 with The End of the Innocence, a moody, deliberative album that turned into his biggest solo success, reaching number eight on the Billboard 200. There, he picked up drums and he took to it quickly, next playing in a group called the Four Speeds with his guitarist friend Richard Bowden. Both songs use the effective technique of varying the words in the chorus each time it is sung, to advance the song's narrative. The Henley version became his fifth solo Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, which is more than any of the other Eagles members, peaking at number 8 on the chart.
