Thoughts on Songs with Don Henley
2 years ago
Damn It Rose was written by Don Henley about a friend who committed suicide and left behind a son (and a Burmese Cat). There is obviously a lot of anger in the song, upset that Rose took her life and left behind a son that wouldn't have a mother for the rest of his life. It's obvious that this person meant a lot to Don Henley, and that despite being angry that she took her life, he misses her.
