- Don Henley is a rarity in rock, having dealt with superstardom both as part of the Eagles, and again as a solo artist. A while back, Henley told VH1 that the amount of fame and notoriety the Eagles attained in the 1970's was hard to deal with on a day-to-day basis: "Y'know, when you're young and you get hit with all this stuff, you, you, you freak out. (Laughs) Because, y'know, things, things get magnified in importance. So it's nice to have survived all that."
