Stars today don’t know how to deal with life in the fast lane, says Don Henley. “A lot of these people aren’t getting the guidance that they should be getting because managers don’t want to rock the boat. They don’t want to say something to the golden goose that may make the golden goose fire them. They’re reluctant to tell these kids the truth, which is, ‘You need to go to f—ing rehab now.'” Evidently out-of-control drug habits weren’t a problem in the seventies.
Hey, did you know that the Eagles won a Grammy last night? Yes, their wooing of the Grand Ol’ Opry crowd led to them taking home the Country Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals award for their song “How Long.” And the win made Don Henley get a little misty-eyed: “This Grammy win is particularly sweet because of the length of time that has passed since we (the Eagles) won our first Grammy in early 1976. I was 28 years old then. I’m 60 now.” And he’s ready to make 61 an even more awards-laden year!
