Biography

As a founding member of the phenomenally successful rock act the Eagles, Don Henley was a guiding force behind its slew of chart-topping hits, providing vocals, lyrics and drums on songs like "Witchy Woman," "Best of My Love," "One of These Nights," "Hotel California" and "I Can't Tell You Why. " Following the group's disintegration in 1980, he quickly established himself as a solo artist with a quartet of popular and critically acclaimed albums, including 1984's Building the Perfect Beast and 1989's The End of the Innocence. Henley's solo work reflected a thoughtfulness in regard to personal and social issues that was largely absent from his work with the Eagles, and which he echoed in his own life through involvement with various causes. In 1994, he ended his long-standing feud with the Eagles and rejoined them for a string of extraordinarily well-received tours and albums. His commitment to authenticity and honesty, both as a solo artist and with the Eagles, made him one of rock-n-roll's most highly regarding singer-songwriters.
