Henley and the Eagles head back on tour (12/6/2013)
Without a doubt, Don Henley has been the most successful member of The Eagles to branch out into a full-fledged solo career. In fact, in 2012 he celebrated 30 years since the release of his debut album, "I Can't Stand Still." And just like the working title of that project, Henley certainly has done anything but stand still.
Although his solo venture wasn't a success right out of the gate, Henley nudged the gate open thanks to the number three single "Dirty Laundry," which propelled the album to gold status. He followed up that effort with the sophomore album "Building the Perfect Beast," which to this day stands as the project that put Henley on the map. It spawned the Top Ten hits "Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants to Do is Dance," as well as the Top 40 singles "Not Enough Love in the World" and "Sunset Grill." At a time when such longevity was almost unheard of, the album stayed on the charts for a year and sold more than two million copies.
So how did Henley handle that success? By topping it, of course. In 1989 he rolled out "The End of Innocence," which stayed on the charts for three years and moved more than three million copies. It did so on the strength of the title track, "Heart of the matter," "New York Minute" "How Bad Do You Want It?" and "The Last Worthless Evening."
Since then, Henley has worked on an off with the Eagles. Their live album, "Hell Freezes Over," was a major success in 1995, and Henley later resumed his solo work when the band decided to take another hiatus. He's been back and forth with the band since then, with his last solo recording, "Inside Job," coming in 2000.
You can see Henley (and the rest of the Eagles) on tour in 2014, which will include a UK leg beginning May 28 at the LG Arena in Birmingham.
