Don Henley On Glenn Frey: Up To Joe Walsh And Me To Carry On

Don Henley released his “Cass County” album last August, a collection of songs about his hometown in Texas and a trip back to his roots as he mused in his conversation with Carter Alan.

Henley is on tour playing songs from that album, his many solo hits, and a generous helping of Eagles’ memories. Some of his former band’s songs, like “Wasted Time,” have not been played in years – and even then, rarely by the Eagles.

Henley has infinite praise for his current 15-piece band with backup singers and a horn section which gives him the ability to tackle a lost classic such as “Wasted Time,” power through the rhythmic hits of his 80’s solo heyday, and present his new material with its country and Americana flavors.

Henley talks about his Walden Woods Project and how the fight is not yet over to protect this historical and natural Massachusetts treasure and plans to return to officially open the Walden Woods Welcome Center with our Governor on September 27.

He also laments the passing of his good friend Glenn Frey and how it’s up to Joe Walsh and him to carry on.

Henley plays the blues Hills Bank Pavilion on Tuesday September 20.
