As Don Henley continues on what has been a well-received, but apparently endless, hits-packed reunion tour with the Eagles, heís developed a laundry list of audience behaviors that get under his skin.
That includes, but is not limited to, fans who stand up, fans who text, fans who take too many pictures and fans who post raw concert videos to YouTube.

Those days are gone forever
You should just let ‘em go
Mojo Nixon was right.
I have always hated The Eagles.
I get it. I’m kind of two minds about it. While I certainly am too old to go to concerts anymore, it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
“...and I’m getting older, too.”
Lebowski? ; )
Shirley not Joe Walsh !!
I do not like his politics, especially that song “This the end of the innocence,” nothing more than a diatribe against Reagan, but these points are valid.
Sorry Don, but that polite and respectful America is long gone.
I thought Bruce Hornsby actually wrote that.
Would it be too late to tell Don to kiss may a$$? Maybe. Maybe not.
The wife and I have been to quite a few concerts by old rockers in the last four years. We’re always amused at the numerous concertgoers who seem to be more interested in their smartphones than watching the performers. And people standing all the time are unbelievably irritating. Sit in your damn seat says Driftless the old curmudgeon.
I guess this is the end of his innocence?
Back in the eighties my ex-husband and I went to one of his concerts. My ex was being obnoxious and waited in the back for them to load their buses. The security stopped him, he tells them he just wants Don’s autograph on his belt. So he gives the guard his nice belt and never got it back. LOL.
>> eventually throwing stuff at him
