5. This one is tricky. Kenny produced Shiloh, with Don Henley on lead vocals. Henley went on to be in The Eagles, but he was the only member of Shiloh to be in The Eagles and Kenny had nothing to do with The Eagles. No offense, Rick, but I think your question is a bit off.(g)
Hey Steve, admittedly I had a difficult time putting this question together! My primary intention was to reveal Kenny Rogers connection with The Eagles! Your comments clean things up a bit and are, as usual, very helpful but the truth is Kenny did bring Henry to L.A. to meet and work with Glen Frye and Randy Miesner as well!
As always Steve your input is always a welcome addition!
Rick, according to legend, Henley met Glenn Frey at The Troubadour. Glenn was in Longbranch Pennywhistle with JD Souther at the time. Both Glenn and Don became part of Linda Ronstadt’s backup band, who then became The Eagles. I don’t think Kenny had anything to do with this except for bringing Henley out to LA with Shiloh.
