“One of rock’s most contentiously dysfunctional families” finally recieved the Kennedy Center Honors
Dec 05, 2016Megan Gibson
President Obama had Eagles jokes during the Kennedy Centre Honours/Honors(?). He poked some fun at Joe Walsh’s reputation re: hotel rooms. Watch the speech below.
Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, Joe Walsh, and Glenn Frey’s widow, Cindy, were all present at the ceremonies today (Sunday). They were supposed to be honoured in 2015, however, Frey was too ill to attend so it was pushed to this year. Unfortunately, he passed last January.
Tributes were performed by Ringo Starr, Bob Seger, The Kings of Leon, and others.
The ceremony will air on CBS Tuesday, December 27th.
