The Eagles’ Don Henley Major Surprise Speech in Rochester
Rochester got quite the surprise when all of a sudden, the legendary Don Henley walked out to give a speech. At the Rochester Music Hall of Fame, Don Henley shocked people when he walked out to acknowledge one of the inductees.
The Rochester Music Hall of Fame was going on at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre Sunday night. One of the inductees was the longtime music director for The Eagles, Will Hollis. To induct Hollis, there were video messages from The Eagles members Vince Gill, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt, and then all of a sudden, an in-person appearance from Don Henley.
You can see the video below:
I think I played here when Glenn ( Frey) and I were members of Linda Ronstadt's backup band in 1971. Anyone remember that?" Henley said of the Eastman Theatre.
The great thing about Will is he is one of the more level-headed, sane people I know. Being in his orbit is being in a nice, drama-free zone.... I can always count on him to be on top of it, on point... He does a great job every time. He has become an extremely important member of The Eagles' touring operation.
Congratulations to all of the inductees from the 10th annual Rochester Music Hall of Fame inductions ceremony.
It is so cool when you see spottings of famous people in the Rochester and Buffalo area. It doesn't happen often, but when it does people are so excited. Other notable musicians from Rochester include Teddy Geiger, Sunny Jain, Joe English, and Chris Beard.
