The Eagles are arguably the tightest-lipped group ever. Through breakup and comeback, arguments and lawsuits, their popularity has continued to soar for more than three decades. Now former band member and guitarist Don Felder finally breaks the Eagles’ years of public silence to take fans behind the scenes—where drugs, greed, and endless acrimony threatened to break up the band almost daily.
In Heaven And Hell…My Life With the Eagles 1974-2001, Felder shares every part of the band’s wild ride, from the pressure-packed recording studios and trashed hotel rooms to the tension-filled courtrooms where he, Glenn Frey, and Don Henley had their ultimate confrontation. Yet, beyond the mayhem and clashing egos that have become standard-issue in rock-and-roll, Felder also remembers the joy of writing powerful new songs with his bandmates; the magic of performing in huge arenas packed with roaring fans; and the hard work, dedication, and creativity that each band member brought to the music, even in the worst of times.
