Donald Hugh Henley (born July 22, 1947 in Gilmer, Texas) is drummer, singer, and songwriter with the band Eagles. Since the 80s he has had a successful solo career and has played a founding role in several causes. Henley's music is often social commentary. One of his more famous songs is "Dirty Laundry" (from his I Can't Stand Still album, released in 1982). Its origins date back to 1980, when Henley was put on probation for possession of a narcotic and fined for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
