Don Felder "Formerly of the Eagles"

Don Felder is renowned as a former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. The bands record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold over 29 million copies in the

U.S. alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th Century. Currently Don and the Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. Felder originated the music and co-wrote The Eagles biggest hit – the iconic, Grammy-studded smash “Hotel California” – along with fan favorites like “Victim of Love” and “Those Shoes”. He became immediately celebrated for his lyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like “Hotel California,” “One of These Nights,” “New Kid In Town,” and numerous more. “Hotel California” was recently voted the Number 1 best 12 string guitar song in the world by Guitar World magazine.

Four time Grammy award winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, New York Times best selling author, amazing guitarist and captivating performer is the best way to describe Don Felder today.
