Biography

Don Henley was born on July 22, 1947, in Gilmer, Texas. He was raised in Linden—a small, dusty town near the Arkansas and Louisiana border with a population of only 2,400.

His father, C.J. Henley, was a World War II veteran who owned an auto parts store, and his mother, Hughlene McWhorter, was a teacher. Henley was exposed to music from a very young age.

Education

He attended Linden-Kildare High School. During his time there, he played football with the school’s team. However, his coach discouraged him continuing due to his small frame, so instead, he joined the high school band, playing the trombone before moving to the percussion section.

Career

After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the Stephen F. Austin State University before moving to the North Texas State University but dropped out to spend more time with his father, who was dying from heart disease.

He already had experience in playing with bands, along with friends. He formed a Dixieland band called Four Speeds, and by chance met Kenny Rogers who took an interest in their music.

They changed their name to Shiloh and started recording songs, however, with the death of one of their band members in a dirt bike accident, they reformed the band and were signed to Amos Records.

The group disbanded in 1971 due to creative differences between Don and band member Michael Bowden, but he was soon recruited as a member of the backup band of Linda Ronstadt, which included Glenn Frey. This tour would be the catalyst for the creation of a new group, which would become The Eagles.

He sang the lead vocals for numerous Eagles hits, such as “Hotel California”, “The Long Run”, “Witchy Woman”, and “Get Over It”.
