Happy Birthday to Don Henley!

Would you check out that hair? Happy Birthday to Don Henley!! He's 62 today!

I was going to show you "The Boys of Summer" music video, which happened to win a bunch of awards at the '85 MTV Video Music Awards (you know, back when MTV was actually about the music), but instead I want to show you this:

That right there is the Eagles I know and love! Great music. Great harmonies. And the "Desperado Reprise"? Genius.

"Your twisted fate has found you out
And it's finally turned the table
Stole your dreams and paid you with regret"

Thoughts? Comments? Am I totally crazy? ;)

P.S. I really enjoyed reading everyone's lists of top albums from 1975 -- I think we should do that again with a different year! Let me know what year you would like to do!

I like their first album a lot, as it is the most balanced, writing wise. The Bernie Leadon era was amazing. Top ten LPs from 1968 would be cool.

I love the Desperado album! Makes me want to sit on the couch and watch Western movies all day.

Top ten from any year would be fun!

@ Sean - I think we'll do 1968 next then!

@ Whizkid - Yep, I love the whole outlaw theme. Very cool.

@ Rock and Roll - You can keep your Bob Dylan and I can keep my Don Henley. :) You can get out of my cab now. ;)
