Back in March, Don Henley indicated the future of The Eagles was bleak following the passing of Glenn Frey.
In a new interview with The Mirror, Henley appears to have changed his position. “At some point in the future, we might work our way round to that,” he said.
If The Eagles were to reunite and hit the road again, Henley wants to keep it in the family. He added, “you know, Glenn [Frey] has a son who can sing and play quite well. And one of the only things that would make sense to me is if it were his son.”
It wasn’t uncommon for Frey’s son Deacon to join his father on stage during concerts. Henley recognizes Deacon’s talents, which is why he’s adamant about only doing a reunion if he’s a part of it, despite former members like Timothy B. Schmit, Joe Walsh and Jackson Browne being around. “With Jackson, of course, we could do “Take It Easy” and a couple other things, but the only way I would consider any kind of reunion, I think, would be with Glenn’s son, Deacon,” he said.
