With mommy and daddy standing by

goodbye cassette tapes, making your own mix tape side A and B, no more VCR's, walkmans, playing in the hot summer streets because that was the only fun thing to do, 5 dollar ninja shoes, waiting for you favorite tv show to come on, drive ins, hide and seek. Now just tablets and phones. So sad to see my kids time spent on tablets and phones. We gotta make a change!

I saw an interview with Glen, last night on Tavis Smiley... he said he always admired Don's poetic abilities since he first heard the lyrics to Desperado... . . R.I.P. Glen Frey

please see below first: so, it wasn't until '94 (when money reared it's head) that they got back together for the hell freezes over tour (essentially , they wouldn't get back together until hell freezes over). so the the beck and call of big bucks did the trick. eventually, felder was thrown out of the band, sued for wrongful term, got paid, and that was that. so that's the story. anybody still listening? anyway, this will definitely get me points with those gods. mazol tuf!

of all the members of the eagles who went solo henley did the best. grammys, etc. frey said they never actually broke up; they just stopped playing together. primarily because of frey's problems with felder. well, they hated each other. felder wanted to sing their songs, and frey said: why?, they already had henley and himself to do that.(note: henley wasn't very good) so at their last performance they started yelliing at each other on stage, and that was that. please see above.

This might be my favorite song of all time. The lyrics are so relatable to a time in my life and the divorce of my parents. Thank you to Henley and Hornsby for writing it. ��

GREAT SONG.

I heard the End of the Innocence on XM radio once and the DJ said, after the song finished, that it was about how Don Henley got screwed by a record company or his agent or both (or something like that).
I always thought it was about divorce so I was shocked to hear that.

Think that this album may have introduced Hornsby to the rest of the world. Very recognizable piano. Thanks Don.

@coolbob1... . Yeppers, sure is. I've seen Henley do it live, but you're right. Hornsby has a 'sound'. The only keyboarder that actually sounded like him was (gag, puke) Christopher Cross. And this song is one oe Henley's best solo recordings.. . b a r none.

Is that Bruce Hornsby playing the piano ? It must be...or his style clone.

I have always liked Don Henley...but preferred his work with The Eagles. I wonder if he will retire and enjoy his grandkids as he wanted?
