Don Henley Calls Frank Ocean ‘A Talentless Little Prick’

Don Henley has lashed out at Kanye West and Frank Ocean.

The Eagles singer/songwriter has labelled Frank a “talentless little prick” after previously threatening to sue him when the rapper used The Eagles’ song Hotel California on his track American Wedding without permission.

He said: “I didn’t think he was cool. I thought he was a talentless little prick. And I still do.

“Some of these young kids have grown up in a world that doesn’t understand or respect copyright material or intellectual property. They look at songs as interactive playthings.”

When asked by The Guardian if he would be more comfortable if a more established artist, such as Kanye West, sampled his music, Don said: “No, I’d be just as pissed off. I don’t like him, either” and Don also hit out at Kanye’s claims that he plans to run for President of the United States in 2020.

The musician, who has a new country album Cass County, scoffed: “He won’t be president. He’s either incredibly arrogant or incredibly insecure, or some combination of the two.”
