("...because once we came up with the concept of Hotel California based on the music that I had written, all the other stories started falling out of that".) But, then again, everyone does that. Nick Mason was criticized by other Floyd guys for all the "we"s in his book about Pink Floyd.
    Don, Glen and I had stayed up for about a day and a half talking in this hotel room

    Despite how much they hated each other. Uh huh. So now Don Felder is also responsible for the concept of that most Henleyesque of songs, The Last Resort.He basically says that there woud have been no album at all without the concept of Hotel California based on the music that I had written.

    Modesty is not this man's strong point. Neither is the idea that other people he has worked with also contributed to the success. I have never read so much 'me, me, me' from any other musician.

    Yes, a certain Harrison track from the Let It Be album comes to mind.

    Here's another interview. I think it's new but the content is old.

    He talks about planning to do "Wash Away" with Tommy Shaw as part of his set... I wonder why that never materialized?

    Also he refers to "his wife" - did he finally make it official and marry the mother of his child, as opposed to the extended engagement? If so, I say WAY TO GO.

    It doesn't discuss him, and I can't find the thread about the Soundtracks of Summer Tour in general, and I'm late for a meeting.... But he's on tour with these guys, so he should have been mentioned.
