DON HENLEY: GLENN FREY’S SON TO JOIN THE EAGLES FOR UPCOMING SHOWS

Confirming earlier reports, Glenn Frey‘s son, 23-year-old Deacon Frey, will indeed join the Eagles for their two Classic East/West concerts in Los Angeles and New York City this July. Bestclassicbands.com reported that on Monday (May 15th), Don Henley appeared on Dallas sports radio station KTCK and when asked, spilled the beans regarding Deacon’s involvement, saying, “I’m not supposed to say that. Yeah, he is. There’s going to be an official announcement in a few days but let’s just do it here. Glenn’s son Deacon is a very talented young man, and he seems to be up for the task. He’s enthusiastic about it and he’s been working real hard on it, and he’s gonna do it with us. I think that’s appropriate.” Glenn Frey died on January 18th in New York City due to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. He was 67-years-old.

Last summer, Henley piqued fans’ interest regarding Deacon’s involvement with the group, when he pondered how the Eagles could possibly survive the devastating loss of Glenn Frey, telling The Montreal Gazette: “At some point in the future, we might work our way around to that. You know, Glenn has a son who can sing and play quite well. And one of the only things that would make sense to me is if it were his son. With Jackson (Browne), 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.” Henley made it a point at the time to explain that none of this had even been officially broached with the Frey family.
