LAS VEGAS -- After nearly 30 years,


classic rock group the Eagles may soon

release their first album of all-new music.

Founding member Don Henley said
during a private weekend concert that the
band was nearing completion on an album
of all-new material, the Las Vegas Review-Journal
reported on Tuesday.

"It's coming out in 60 to 90 days, if we don't
kill each other first," Henley told the crowd Saturday
at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Eagles and Henley spokesman Larry Solters said Wednesday
there was no comment.

The Long Run" in 1979 was the Eagles last album featuring all-new
studio material. That album included the Grammy-winning single
"Heartache Tonight."

The group officially disbanded in 1982, then they reunited in 1994 for
a comeback tour featuring Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh,
Timothy Schmit and Don Felder.

The band appeared together again in 1998, with past members
Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, when they were inducted
into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Henley, 59, will be honored Feb. 9 as the 2007 MusiCares
Person of the Year. The annual gala put on by the Recording
Academy and the MusiCares Foundation is among the
festivities leading up to the 49th Annual Grammy Awards at the
Staples Center on Feb. 11.

Henley, who has a home in Dallas, was selected for his
achievements as a musician and for his philanthropic work
benefiting environmental issues and musicians' rights and concerns.

MusiCares, established by The Recording Academy in 1989,
provides assistance to individuals in the music industry
during times of need.
