My favorite rock band of all time has always been the Eagles. I saw Don Henley's special on the A&E network and would like to know what's next for him.

Don Henley, 53, soon will be returning to the studio with Glenn Frey and the Eagles to make another album. The band recently released a box set titled Eagles: Selected Works 1972-1999. This will be the second Eagles' studio album since 1994, when they made the successful Hell Freezes Over. The Eagles' Their Greatest Hits: 1971-1975 sold 27 million copies, which helped the band become the third-highest-selling group of all time, behind the Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Although he still records in Los Angeles, Henley has returned to his native Texas (he was raised in Linden, pop. 2,459), where he lives with his wife, Sharon, and their three children. He remains active in political and environmental causes, especially The Walden Woods Project, which he founded in 1990 to protect the land made famous by Henry David Thoreau.
