Henley Says Songs Are the Stars of Eagles Shows

Over 40 years after releasing their self-titled debut, Don Henley says the true superstar of the Eagles is the music. Although the group’s lineup has changed frequently over the decades, Henley and co-founder Glenn Frey have weathered the personnel problems and managed to always keep the band centered on the music first.

Henley told The Courier-Journal, “The songs are bigger than the band and that’s exactly the way it should be. Those songs are now a part of the lives of millions of people, the world over, and it’s very gratifying to know that we have somehow touched all those lives. But, as a band — and as individuals — we were never all that enthusiastic about the fame aspect, never thought of ourselves as ‘rock stars.’ We have seldom actively sought the limelight except in terms of the obligatory marketing duties and the concert tours. We go before the public to perform our material and that’s it.”
