Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit is clipping any Eagles reunion hopes in the wake of the group's buoyant Kennedy Center Honor this month.
After the ceremony -- filmed in early December -- aired on Tuesday (December 27), Schmit tells CBS News that without the late Glenn Frey he, Don Henley and Joe Walsh would not play together again, "certainly not as the Eagles. The Eagles without Glenn -- it's over. What happens in the future with Don and Joe and I -- I have no clue. Nothing's been talked about, and I think we're still processing this huge change in our lives, so I don't know. The real answer is we don't know. We'll see what happens."
Joe Walsh echoed Schmit's words to us, saying the Kennedy Center Honor was likely the last we'll see of the Eagles:
"Well, it's kind of happy/said, y'know?...We don't have a lot of say in it. We're just supposed to sit there and look like we're cool. They don't tell us a bunch about it...That maybe puts a little closure on it, and it's a lovely, happy ending."
Frey died on January 18 at the age of 67 from pneumonia resulting from treatments for acute ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis.
