A reworked version of 'Hotel California' finds co-writer Don Felder employing a flamenco style similar to the Eagles' 1990s-era live version of the track -- while appearing alongside tour mates from Styx and Foreigner.
The radio host reacts negatively to a performance of 'Hotel California' by the ex-Eagle.
The former Eagles guitarist will reissue his 2012 album with four more songs.
Foreigner and Styx are hitting the road with Don Felder for the Soundtrack of Summer tour, scheduled to begin May 16 -- and they stopped by the Ultimate Classic Rock offices to talk about how it came together, what inspired their new re-recording of the Eagles classic 'Hotel California,' and what we can expect to see and hear during the tour.
Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder recently released a solo album titled 'Road to Forever,' and on Monday (March 18) he released the second single from the project, a mid-tempo electric-acoustic hybrid titled 'Wash Away.' And while it might not be the second coming of 'Hotel California,' the track is a deserving effort with many strong elements, and more than worthy of a listen for any fan of his prior work.
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Don Felder is undoubtedly best-known for his years with the Eagles, during which time he co-wrote such classic tracks as 'Hotel California,' 'Victim of Love' and 'Those Shoes.' His outro solo with Joe Walsh on 'Hotel California' is widely considered one of the most important guitar solos of the rock era.
