The Eagles Are Over Says Henley

(hennemusic) Don Henley says that The Eagles' emotional tribute performance to Glenn Frey at the Grammy Awards last month marks the band's farewell performance.

The group were joined by Jackson Browne at the event to perform their first hit, 1972's "Take It Easy." The performance was a billed as one-time only special tribute to Frey, who passed away January 18 at the age of 67 from a combination of rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia. "It's been a great loss for a lot of us, and we're still trying to cope with it," Henley tells BBC Radio 2.

As for the Grammys appearance, "It was very difficult and very emotional," he explains. "We actually almost didn't do it, but the Grammy people were very insistent so we decided that we would do it."

The drummer says the Frey tribute has brought an end to The Eagles, 45 years after they formed in Los Angeles. "I think that was the final farewell," says Henley. "I don't think you'll see us performing again. I think that was probably it." Read more here.
