When Don Henley and Glenn Frey set about authorizing the new documentary 'History of the Eagles,' they took the unusual step of securing an Oscar-winning filmmaker to produce -- because, as Frey put it in a recent interview with the New York Times, "Our management sent me what they thought were some of the best music documentaries that had been done. And I wasn’t crazy about any of it."
The enduring success of the Eagles means that Don Henley doesn't need to work unless he wants to. And when that time comes, it's hard to get him to stop. In a new interview, he discussed his upcoming projects that will keep him busy for the next few years, which includes a new solo album and autobiography.
There were many things that jumped out to Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey as he waded through hours of homemade archival video footage from the '70s, which would eventually become the heart of the new, no-holds-barred documentary on the seminal Southern California band, 'History of the Eagles Part 1.'
With the possible exception of Joe Walsh, the guys in the Eagles aren't exactly known for being talkative, and Don Henley tends to be the most taciturn of all -- so the fact that he recently decided to open up to Rolling Stone about the pair of new documentaries delving into the band's history must mean he really likes the movies.
