“Dirty Laundry” by Don Henley – 1982

This week on his hat-trick episode, Johnny Grundo picks a stinker from the hamper… Don Henley’s 1982 number one, “Dirty Laundry”. Fresh from the break up of the Eagles, Don Henley wrote this song as a response to the callousness of the media’s coverage of the recent deaths of several Hollywood actors. However, Henley himself had his share of media attention due to his involvement in the drug overdose of an underage prostitute during a party at his house. Was there a massive cover-up to keep Henley out of serious legal trouble? Was this album a simple cash-grab to support his mounting legal fees? Where do Spinal Tap and George Michael fit into all of this? All of these questions and more will be answered on this week’s episode of Single File.
