Are the Eagles headed to the Great White Way?
It's certainly something the group is considering, especially in the wake of the success of their "History of the Eagles" documentary. Don Henley tells us that while he's busy promoting his latest solo album Cass County there are also discussions going on about an Eagles musical, led at this point by co-founder Glenn Frey:
"We’re sort of thing about trying to create a musical; I guess that's what you do at this point of your career. The documentary was so successful we decided we might have some success with a musical theater piece, and I think Glenn's been concentrating on that, the centerpiece of which would be 'Hotel California' but the entire catalog would be involved in some way. But that's a tricky business, just what we've learned about it in the past two years. I mean, you can really go wrong with that, so we're gonna do a lot of homework before we go down that road, and it may come to fruition and it may not. That's just something we're talking about and thinking about."
Henley, meanwhile, returns to the road for the next leg of his "Cass County" tour on Monday (November 2) in New York City.
