I know a lot of people are tough on Don Henley and the Eagles, but the man is a hell of a songwriter. And he’s got cojones of steel. Henley, promoting his new album Cass County on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night, took on national disgrace and right wing presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Performing the new song “Too Much Pride” on the Late Show stage, Henley called out The Donald by name not once, but twice. Take a look and listen:
Well played, Mr. H. (And top marks as well to the effervescent Jon Batiste and the musicians.)
Colbert hosts the former NBC star and current candidate Tuesday night. That should be interesting. Can’t wait to see it online Wednesday.
