On November 27th 1995, Don Henley chatted live with AOL (America Online). At the time, this was a huge deal. Today, we're used to celebrities sharing (sometimes oversharing) things with fans using social media or online blogs. Back in 1995, though, the thought that we could power up our modem, log on to AOL and see Don type (or dictate) answers to fans questions in real time was mind-blowing. It's a bit different from these days when Don's interviews are much less spontaneous. It's interesting to see what's changed in 15 years and what hasn't changed.We have the transcript in PDF form (copied from the chat window), but we've converted it to photos to share with you here.
My favorite line:"I am still planning to do a blues or a country/blues album in the next two to three years"
What do you find interesting?
