DON FELDER'S FIRST SOLO ALBUM IN
NEARLY 30 YEARS, ROAD TO FOREVER, OUT OCT 9
Don Felder's new album Road to Forever -- remarkably, only the influential guitarist and songwriter's second solo album, and first since 1983 -- features twelve rousing, guitar-driven original tracks anchored firmly in the classic LA-rock sound he perfected as guitarist for the Eagles for 27 years. Filled with songs that reflect on life, love's gains and losses, and redemption, the album is a return to center stage for the celebrated musician.
Road to Forever was conceived during a long period of introspection that also resulted in his hit book "Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001)." After his acrimonious separation from the Eagles and the dissolution of his 29-year marriage, Felder was inspired to "write out the stories of my life as songs. After I collected myself, I found I needed to go out and play music again, and that's how I began recording the album. In the process, I found out who I really am - I had to find out what happened when I almost lost it all."
Hear "Fall From the Grace of Love" -- a wistful, expansive song that recalls the best of the 70s singer-songwriter/country rock heyday -- at Ultimate Classic Rock.
Felder wrote or co-wrote all the songs and performs guitar and lead vocals on the set, which boasts a long list of iconic guest performers -- long-time cohorts and friends including: David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills; Steve Lukather, David Paich and Steve Porcaro of Toto; Randy Jackson; Tommy Shaw and others. Produced by Felder along with Robin DiMaggio (Paul Simon, Steve Vai), Road to Forever will be released October 9 on Rocket Science Ventures.
Felder will embark on a series of high profile dates this fall. Dates to be announced soon.
