    I enjoyed it, but the bit about the new album was disappointing. Nothing but name dropping.

    Felder interviews are more enjoyable to watch these days. He seems relaxed.

    An interview with Don from last month where he discusses collaborating with other artists in the past as well as for the new album. I found this part about “Sad Cafe” interesting:

    “The funny part is that I spent about a year and a half here in New York City, where I am now, learning to play jazz, learning to improvise,” Felder said.
    “… Henley knew that, and would throw things at me to do. When they needed a solo somewhere, (he would say), ‘Don, just make up something,’ so I’d plug in and make up something. Like the middle of ‘Sad Cafe.’ It’s a very acoustic, light, electric-piano-and-acoustic sounding track, and Don said, ‘You need to do something on acoustic guitar here.’ So I went out and built a really intricate harmony — I think there was six acoustic guitars playing an acoustic harmony part together on that solo there, something that I’d never done, never heard of.”

    I wonder if Don (H) remembers that?

    LOL Brooke, who knows? I’m surprised any of them can remember much from that time.

    Another video interview with Don about his new album. Nothing really new but he does confirm he is a Gator fan and that he expects to be touring on and off for the next 18 months. I guess he plans to stay busy.

    Interesting trivia: "Sun" was an Eagles reject from 1974!

    I can definitely hear the Henley/Frey/Leadon/Meisner vocal sound in my head when I hear Sun. But the song probably would have been a bit too laid back for the Eagles at that time.

    I find it interesting that Don said "they just brushed it aside" about Sun, when it took several decades and three records to record it himself.

    I agree Chaim. I can see why it was not included on OOTN album. They were not going to include a song about the birth of Don F's son. Although it was a beautiful and special time for him, it was not suitable for the album. Sounds like he still has a grudge all these years later ! And, this part of the article shocked me : "Don Felder wrote 16 or 17 songs for Eagles ‘Hotel California’. Only two, ‘Hotel California’ and ‘Victim of Love’ were used. He has not gone back and listened to the ones that weren’t used on the label but says they still exist. “As a matter of fact I was just thinking the other day that I should get back to my storage lockers and find those cassettes that they were on. I should give them a listen. There may be some interesting stuff on there”.

    Do they mean he wrote the music to 16 or 17 songs or the lyrics too ? Just wondering....
