Best known as a founder of the legendary rock band, the Eagles, as well as an influential solo artist, Don Henley has maintained an extraordinary commitment to music and to various philanthropic efforts throughout his career, including a dedication to environmental issues and artists’ rights.
Raised in a small East Texas town, Henley was drawn to the sounds of exotic music broadcast from distant radio stations in New Orleans, Nashville and Ciudad Acuna, Mexico. These stations introduced him to the blues, bluegrass, gospel, jazz and rock and roll, paving the way for his future as an artist.
As a solo artist and as a member of the Eagles, Don Henley has received countless accolades, numerous gold and platinum records and performed sold-out concert tours worldwide. A highly-respected musical artist, Henley launched his solo career in 1982 with his debut album I Can’t Stand Still, featuring the hit single “Dirty Laundry.” 1984’s Building The Perfect Beast yielded four hit singles, garnered five GRAMMY nominations and won the award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Male for “The Boys Of Summer.” The artist’s track record continued unabated with 1989’s The End Of The Innocence, which yielded three more hits, including the title track, and brought Henley another Best Rock Vocal GRAMMY Award. Henley is a founding member, vocalist and songwriter of the Eagles. The group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
