Don Felder was a member of the Eagles from 1974 until 2001 and wrote ‘Hotel California’, arguably their biggest song. Known as ‘Fingers’ by the rest of the Eagles due to his exceptional guitar playing ability, he has recently released a new solo album ‘American Rock ‘n’ Roll’. He told Tom why Hotel California had to be recorded three times, how he created his now-famous double-neck guitar, and why it has never been about the fame or the money for him.

“Don Felder Says You’ll Never Master The Game”Although he’s one of the most legendary guitar players of all time, Don Felder says music is like golf—it’s a game you can’t master. That said, Felder is pretty masterful. The Florida born musician’s third solo album American Rock and Roll is further evidence that he’s one of the most innovative players on the planet and at the height of his creative powers. In this chat Felder talks to Alex about musical discipline, his love of B.B. King and what makes music eternal. He also talks about the power of collaboration, his teaming up with folks like Slash and Peter Frampton for his new album, and why it’s okay if an idea doesn’t always work out the way you planned…
Welcome to the Nothing Shocking Podcast Episode 164. On this weeks episode our guest is the legendary guitarist, songwriter Don Felder. Don Felder rose to fame in one of the greatest rock bands of all time The Eagles, but he’s got a new album out called “American Rock n Roll” that features everyone including Slash, […]
While growing up in poverty, Don “the Fingers” Felder taught himself to play guitar. After getting his start with bandmembers from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, he joined the Eagles. He not only co-wrote the iconic song “Hotel California,” he has the highest selling album of all time: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, which sold 38 million copies. He has performed with some of the biggest names in the industry, including the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, and Sir Elton John. He is also a best-selling author of Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles. In 2001 he left the band after 27 years and 150 million records (and counting). This week, I am thrilled to have him on our show to share how his morning meditations keep him grounded, how he rose from the backwoods of Florida to become a member of the rock and roll hall of fame, and what his song-writing process looks like. He was a real pleasure to talk with, and I hope you enjoy this week’s episode as much as I did.

The Create Your Own Life Show
About This Episode: Don Felder spent 27 years with the Eagles, who have sold over 150 million albums worldwide to date and own the fine distinction of recording the top-selling album of all time — Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975), which has sold over 38 million copies (and counting). “I’m honored and blessed enough to have contributed to and been a part of a very talented mixture of voices, writing, guitar parts, and production,” he says of the group. “It was a magical, unique combination that happened in a certain place and time. I’m very proud of that. Every time I hear the work we did on the radio, I go, ‘Oh! You were really good!’” Don left the band in 2001 and has since forged an impressive career as a top-tier solo artist, having placed the hard-driving “Heavy Metal (Takin’ a Ride)” in the pole position of the same-named 1981 animated film (a song that remains one of the most requested staples of his live set to this very day), along with a pair of fully realized full-length albums, 1983’s sonically soaring Airborne and 2012’s multifaceted song-cycle treatise, Road to Forever. Felder added “best-selling author” to his ever-impressive C.V. when his spellbinding 2008 memoir, Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001), became an instant New York Times bestselling smash. “There’s still a lot of excitement about it,” he observes. “I still get all these posts about it on Facebook and Twitter, and there’s a huge grass-roots thing that goes on every time I play live. As many as 50 people come up to the front of the stage who have the book and want me to sign it at just about every show.” To that end, Felder finds himself most decidedly back in the driver’s seat with the April 2019 release of his first solo album in seven years, American Rock ’N’ Roll (BMG). American Rock ’N’ Roll covers the gamut of the man’s artistic talents, consisting of 11 high-energy rockers mixed with touching, thoughtful ballads. From the state of the guitar-rock union salute to “American Rock N Roll” to the funky crunch of “Hearts on Fire” to the fierce, unrelenting declaration of “Rock You” to the mutual heartfelt honesty of “Falling in Love” and “You’re My World,” Don Felder has once again tapped into the current music zeitgeist to emerge with an album that represents the peak of his creative prowess.
