DON: Some years after we all had made our ways to California, Tom Petty and his great band the Heartbreakers followed the trail, setting up shop in the mid-70s with a number of lighthearted Rock'n'Roll records that were fine companions to our own, less serious work. Later on, Mike Campbell and drummer Stan Lynch would be some of my best collaborators as I stepped out of the shadow of the Eagles and started making my own hit records.
GLENN: We never let Tom forget that while he had the the song, we had the PHDs in "Making it last all night" with "American Girl"s!
DON: Well, yeah.

Joe's got a four-person backing vocal section so the pressure is off to hit anything out of his range.

Randy Meisner had a Glenn Frey asshole section waiting, so the pressure was on him to avoid being hit by Frey.

when i was a younger fact checking cuz, i spent some time on the phone with henley going over a transcript of a q&a that a reporter at my site did with him. henley had demanded to see the transcript because he was appalled that we had sent a woman in her early 20s to interview henley the great and powerful. first he sent me a copy-edited version of the transcript, with his own proofreading marks on them. not even remotely surprisingly, dude knows his proofreading symbols. then he got on the phone with me to argue hyphens, dashes and semicolons before something else ticked him off and he hung up on me. top-five highlight of my fact checking life.

all i remember is he was extremely confident in his suggestions and was not particularly interested in anything i had to say besides yes, ok and sure. also, he cared more about the punctuation than i did.

one of the joys of learning about henley is the continual, neverending confirmation that he is the dickwagon I assumed he was when I knew zero about him
