Anyone who loves the Eagles (and that is everyone, isn’t it?) knows once we lost Glenn Frey, the Eagles were over.
Mere days after his passing, people were already asking Don Henley if he saw any way the remaining members might consider playing together again. No way, he basically said.

Obviously, we thought.
But then a few months passed and an interviewer asked again. This time Henley mentioned that Glenn’s son, Deacon, was very talented and it was something he might think about, although nothing was being planned in that regard.
As you might imagine, that rumor spread like crazy and “It really pissed me off, frankly, because I hadn’t talked to the kid about it or his mother,” Henley told the Washington Post. “So, it’s just another lesson in keeping my mouth shut.”
Henley said, “I don’t see how we could go out and play without the guy who started the band. It would just seem like greed or something. It would seem like a desperate thing.”
