Don Henley Hates Social Media

By: Stuart Wilson/Getty Images Entertainment

The Eagles founder just turned 65 yesterday. He was born on July 22, 1947 in Gilmer, Texas.

And maybe when you reach that age you just can’t be bothered with Tweets.

But at, this is what is made clear:

“Please be advised that any “Don Henley” Twitter, Facebook, or MySpace account is not Don Henley of the Eagles.

Don Henley does not “Twitter,” nor does he have a Facebook or MySpace account. He does not communicate via social networking sites and has not authorized any account to be created on his behalf.”

Of course, unlike most of the rest of us, Don has a completely different life, and I can imagine that if you’re a musician who wants to continue to pursue your craft, you don’t want any distractions to the creative process.

He does find time, however, for supporting political and environmental causes, including founding the Walden Woods Project, which is “committed to preserving the land, literature and legacy of Henry David Thoreau.”

He’s also donated thousands to the Democratic Party.

He released a greatest hits album, The Very Best of Don Henley, in 2009.

I don’t know about you, but it’s fine with me that he’s not into social media. As long as he continues to bring us the great music he’s so well-known for, I’m good.

Happy birthday to one of the living legends of rock!
