When the Eagles finally get their Kennedy Center Honors later this year, some big name past members won’t be honoured, including Don Felder, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner. The Eagles were scheduled to get the tribute last year but Glenn Frey got sick and then past away. A lot of fans were ticked that the only Eagles to be saluted were Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit, and Joe Walsh. A petition was started to have the past members included but it was denied. Don’t feel bad guys, the Grammy’s tribute to Glenn Frey was lame too.
