World renowned musician Don Felder was one of the five members and former lead guitarist of the rock group the Eagles for 27 years. Credited with adding a rock and roll edge to their country sound, he wrote the music for their biggest hit, the multi Grammy award winning song “Hotel California”. With 14 Grammy nominations and 4 wins, his signature guitar work has become legendary on songs like “Hotel California”, “Life In The Fast Lane”, “One Of These Nights”, “New Kid In Town”, and the list goes on. Don and the Eagles also hold the honor of having the first Platinum album certified by the RIAA. That album, The Eagles’ Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, has reached over 26 million copies, becoming the best-selling album of the 20th century.
A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Don is now writing and recording songs for an upcoming solo project and touring worldwide. He has most recently become a New York Times bestselling author with his autobiography “Heaven and Hell” about his life with the Eagles.
