Don Henley says there is one way an Eagles reunion could happen – if Glenn Frey’s son were to join the band and play in his honor.


Famed classic rock band The Eagles supposedly played for the last time at the 2016 Grammy’s this past February. Original band member Glenn Frey passed away in January after a long illness. The remaining members, Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, and Joe Walsh, plus Jackson Browne, performed “Take it Easy” in a tribute to Frey.

“That was the final farewell. I don’t think you’ll see us performing again,” Henley said following the Grammy performance. “I think that was probably it. I think it was an appropriate farewell.”

Now, however, Henley says a reunion could be in the cards under one condition – that Frey’s son Deacon play alongside them. “At some point in the future, we might work our way around to that,” he said. “You know, Glenn 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. 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.”

Henley also mentioned other factors that might hinder such a reunion. “There have been no discussions along those lines, and we’re still going through the healing process… But right now, everybody’s doing the solo thing.”
