Ousted Eagle Don Felder Releases First Album in Thirty Years, and other Eagles News
Former Eagles member, Don Felder plans to release an album of solo material in October. He’s the one who wrote the tell-all book after being voted out of the band. It seems like those wounds have healed, at least on Felder’s part, and he’s moved on down the ‘Road to Forever,’ his first album in thirty years. It features some old friends, including David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, Steve Porcaro and Tommy Shaw. You can catch a preview of the song ‘Fall From The Grace Of Love’ at UltimateClassicRock.com. Felder’s effort follows on the heels of Joe Walsh’s ‘Analog Man,’ which for some reason always makes me think of Steve Wiley. (Give it a listen and tell me it doesn’t make you think of somebody!)
In other Eagles news: Glenn Frey also released a solo album this year, his first in twenty years. Don Henley plans to finish his country album this summer. Your next chance to see the Eagles live in concert will be in New Jersey on Labor Day weekend.
