How Don Henley’s net worth was built

As a member of The Eagles, drummer Don Henley was responsible for some of the most memorable songs of the 1970s. Credits as both a singer and songwriter on the band’s top-selling singles and albums helped Henley establish a major presence in the music industry. The musician eventually went on to solo success in the 1980s with songs like “The Boys of Summer.”

The Eagles reformed in the 1990s and the band embarked on tours, including the Hell Freezes Over tour, which sold over 3.5 million tickets. That streak of high-grossing tours continued until mid-2016 with the death of Eagles singer/songwriter/guitarist Glenn Frey.

Henley’s net worth as of June 2017 is $200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
