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.
It's hard to find a rock musician who wasn't strongly influenced by the Beatles, and in a new exclusive video interview Styx, Foreigner and Don Felder talk extensively about their life-changing initial experiences with the Fab Four.
A trio of classic-rock giants will hit the road together this summer for a two-and-a-half-month tour that winds across the U.S. Foreigner, Styx and Don Felder will launch the 'Soundtrack of Summer' tour in mid May.
The Scorpions put up a good fight, but their sting wasn't enough to defeat the blue-collar might of Chicago's veteran rock renegades. With nearly 66 percent of the vote, Styx have officially been inducted into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.
This is it -- the first big Hall of Fame battle of 2014. Scorpions and Styx have reached the final round of Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame for January. It's now up to you to decide who gets the crown.
