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.
Styx were on top of the world during the early '80s, with a string of multi-platinum albums and a growing collection of hit singles to their credit -- but it was all about to come to a screeching halt.
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.
He may not be a household name, but for anyone who spends time reading liner notes, Kenny Aronoff is a legend -- a prolific session drummer who's manned the kit for everyone from John Mellencamp to the Smashing Pumpkins. Recently, Aronoff's busy schedule has included the all-star Beatles tribute concert as well as a brief series of gigs with Styx.
