Eagles’ Don Henley suing US Republican

Star says Charles DeVore used his songs without permission

The EaglesDon Henley is suing US Republican Charles DeVore for allegedly using two of his solo songs in campaign videos without permission.

Henley claims that senate candidate DeVore used his songs ‘The Boys of Summer’ and ‘All She Wants To Do Is Dance’ – changing the lyrics of the latter song to attack Democrat rival Barbara Boxer, reports BBC News.

DeVore has said he will issue a counter-claim based on the First Amendment, accusing Henley of “liberal goon tactics”.
