From Eagles Guitarist Don Felder to Release First Solo Album in Seven Years

Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder has signed with BMG for his first solo album since 2012.

Felder was lead guitarist for the Eagles until 2001 when he was fired from the band after disputing the higher percentage Don Henley and Glenn Frey were paying themselves compared to the rest of the band. Prior to the 1980 break-up, income was split five ways. Felder sued for $50 million in damages. The case was settled out of court in 2007 for an undisclosed amount.

Don Felder gave a tell-all account of his time with Eagles in his book ‘Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles 1974-2001’.

Felder’s highlight in the Eagles was as co-writer of ‘Hotel California’. He composed the melody, Henley and Frey wrote the lyrics.

Felder has only previous released two albums outside Eagles. ‘Airborne’ in 1983 and ‘Road to Forever’ in 2012.

“It’s such a wonderful feeling to be a new member of the BMG family. They are an incredible company run by great people. I’m so excited and happy to be part of this amazing group and work side by side on my new album with them.”

The first single and title track ‘American Rock ‘N’ Roll’.

‘American Rock ‘N’ Roll’ will be released on 5 April, 2019. It features appearances from Slash, Bob Weir, Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith and Mick Fleetwood.
