Don Felder

Felder, a true American rock and roll guitar hero, continues to build upon his rich legacy as one of the most innovative riff-generating songwriters of the modern rock era while continuing his growth as a featured touring and recording solo artist.

Not only is Felder a proud, longstanding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having been inducted with the Eagles back in 1998, he was also inaugurated into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville in 2016 and the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2017.

Felder spent 27 years with the Eagles, who own the fine distinction of recording the top-selling album of all time. His matchless lead-guitar tone added fuel to Eagles tracks like “Already Gone,” “One of These Nights,” “Take It to the Limit,” and “New Kid in Town,” in addition to having co-written “Victim of Love,” “Those Shoes,” and his most popular co-creation, “Hotel California.” Felder has also recorded with and performed alongside top-drawer artists such as The Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Warren Zevon, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, and Stephen Stills.

To that end, Felder finds himself most decidedly back in the driver’s seat. His impressive career as a top-tier solo artist includes four fully realized full-length albums and extensive touring as the frontman of his own tight-knit band.
