The Eagles could reunite – if Glenn Frey’s son agrees to join the band

The veteran band had said that they'd broken up for good after Frey died in January

The Eagles have suggested that they would reconsider reuniting if the son of the band’s late guitarist, Glenn Frey, joined the band.

Drummer Don Henley told the BBC back in March that the Californian band, who first formed in 1971, had broken up in the wake of Frey’s death in January.

But in a new interview with The Mirror, Henley has said that there may be a future for the Eagles, saying “at some point in the future, we might work our way round to [reforming].”


“You know, Glenn has a son [Deacon] who can sing and play quite well,” Henley revealed. “And one of the only things that would make sense to me is if it were his son.”

Deacon, who is 22, regularly joined his late father on stage towards the end of the Eagles’ career.

Henley also spoke about the possibility of bringing back Eagles associates Timothy B. Schmit, Joe Walsh and Jackson Browne to the fold, should any reunion plans go ahead.

“With Jackson, of course, we could do ‘Take It Easy’ and a couple other things, but the only way I would consider any kind of reunion, I think, would be with Glenn’s son, Deacon.”

The band last performed at February’s Grammy Awards in L.A. in a tribute to the recently-departed Frey. Henley had said that that performance would be the Eagles’ final farewell.

“I don’t think you’ll see us performing again,” he said. “I think that was probably it. I think it was an appropriate farewell.” ​
