John McEnroe Joins Eagles In London

Tennis great John McEnroe put all those years of pretending to play guitar with a tennis racquet to good use when he joined Eagles on stage in London on the weekend.

Eagles performed at Hyde Park with McEnroe holding court during the final song ‘Already Gone’.

Patty Smyth, who once had the hit song ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’, also appeared for the final song.

Don Henley also indicated that the show may have been the last Eagles show for London ever. “In case we don’t pass this way again, I want to thank you all for embracing these songs, taking them into your hearts and your homes. We appreciate it,” he told the audience.

Recently departed guitarist Deacon Frey, son of the late Glenn Frey, also came back in for his dad’s ‘Peaceful Easy Feeling’ and ‘Take It Easy’ as well as ‘Already Gone’.

Don Henley dedicated his classic ‘The Boys of Summer’ to the late Taylor Hawkins.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss played before Eagles.
