A note or two is slightly out of tune (so what?), but he sings just fine. Perhaps he doesn't have enough confidence to sing live these days, or he can't sing a full show. But I'd rather hear a raw, occasionally out of tune performance than an obviously autotuned tape that is exactly the same every time. He doesn't have to pretend to be a perfect vocalist (like he really could hit those high notes perfectly every time in WW - although he gets praise for it), he's a GUITARIST.

    EDIT:

    As for Don playing Eagles songs he didn't record, I guess it's more ok than Ray Wilson performing old Genesis songs he didn't even perform live with the band!
    I don't actually know which particular Genesis songs Ray played live with them. What's strange is that he also does Gabriel, Collins & Rutherford songs.

    Actually this is pretty good. I would love to hear him do Wish You Were Here & Heroes.

    Don Felder handsome, at home (I think) and playing the beautiful intro of "Road to Forever"

    Interesting.... that's "Road to Forever" and yet that video looks to be Hell Freezes Over era. I guess that song has been percolating a while!

    The description of the video is in French so I'm translating it for you:
    Solo taken out from the "Guitar Spirit" documentary "Conversations with Legendary Guitar Players"
    A chance for listening to the artist unaccompanied, simply armed with his guitar and an ampli, as if you ask a singer to show his gift a capella during an interview.

    Don Felder wrote "Road to Forever" in the seventies after his father's death, in fact he dedicated it to him.
    It's surprising to see that he doesn't play an Eagles song in the documentary but one composed by himself and not released in the nineties yet. Perhaps he chose this song because it meant much to him.

    Thank you for this. I didn’t know he wrote this in the 70s. I agree he is quite handsome here.
