Dear Bruce,

How’ve you been, buddy? Still doing your thing? Ha, ha, me too. Listen, I’ve got an idea: Let’s both change our names to “Bruce Henley.” If we combine our fan bases, who knows—maybe we’ll sell more records. Couldn’t hurt sales, that’s for sure. And that way we can both tour at the same time. Canvas twice the area, split the profits. I know how to play “Mandolin Rain” pretty well. I’ve heard you play “Boys of Summer.” You do O.K., though I think I can show you how to make the guitar lick really shine. A little practice, nobody’ll know the difference.

So what do you say? You wouldn’t have to even change your monograms. But if “Don Hornsby” somehow works better for you, I’m amenable.

Happy birthday!

Your pal,
Don Henley
