Don Henley Unleashes A Monster 30 Years Ago

Dallas, TX - Oct 21, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Albums  hosts Don Henley and songwriter/ producer Danny Kortchmar for a look at the Grammy Award-winning 1984 album Building The Perfect Beast.

'Dirty Laundry'
from Don Henley's first solo album I Can't Stand Still was but a mere appetizer to Henley's second post-Eagles effort Building The Perfect Beast. A monster of a success, BTPB contained the hit singles 'All She Wants To Do Is Dance',  'Sunset Grill', 'Driving With Your Eyes Closed', 'Not Enough Love In The World' and the Eighties anthem 'The Boys of Summer'.

Don Henley's solo career was validated when BTPB would go on to sell over four million albums and garner Henley's first solo Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance on 'The Boys of Summer'.  The accolades aside, Henley nevertheless admits to InTheStudio host Redbeard how he struggles to this day to understand the process of composing.

'The process of songwriting is still a mystery to me. I still don't know how we get from the beginning to the end of it. It just happens. I still can't quite explain it and I'm surprised, sometimes, that some of this stuff comes out of me.'
