Eagles Could Reunite, If Glenn Frey's Son Agrees to Join the Band

In March, following Glenn Frey's death, Eagles co-founder Don Henley said the surviving members of the iconic rock band likely won't perform again. But now he's given a bit of hope otherwise -- if Frey's son is down to join the group. 

In an interview with The Mirror, Henley said, "at some point in the future, we might work our way round to [reuniting]."

"You know, Glenn has a son who can sing and play quite well. And one of the only things that would make sense to me is if it were his son."

Frey's son, 22-year-old Deacon would often join his father onstage before his death in January.

"I don't think that would be quite right, even if I co-wrote them. I'm just not doing it," he said.

But if the hypothetical reunion did take place with the younger Frey, Henley said it could open doors to reuniting with former collaborator Jackson Browne, who joined the band at the Grammys in February to tribute Frey. 

"With Jackson, of course, we could do 'Take It Easy' and a couple other things," said Henley, "but the only way I would consider any kind of reunion, I think, would be with Glenn's son, Deacon," he said.
