    Don Felder has said that Joe Walsh is one of the greatest guitarists alive. I may be wrong, but I donít remember Joe ever praising Don Felder's guitar playing.

    My point was that Felder wrote a book about the Eagles in which he refused to mention either Glenn's songs or his lead vocals. He pretended they didn't exist. He then made his big statement in HOTE that Henley was the best singer in the band as if that was a given & there could be no argument with it.

    He is enttiled to his opinion, of course. But it's a bit sad that he could work with someone for so long and apparently believe for all that time that his colleague was a talentless hack.... while taking the money. If nothing else, despite his intense dislike of Glenn, isn't there something called professional courtesy which should mean you can acknowledge that someone is talented even if you hate them? Glenn, on the other hand, went out of his way to praise Felder's guitar work even after the band broke up.

    See my post above about ignoring or minimising the work of your colleagues. Now I have said as much on this subject as I wish to say.
    He wasnít "taking the money." He was EARNING it.

    Can't remember the first time I saw this but I spent many years after trying to discover the Jackson Browne track that included the phrase "sweet tenderness".

    I encountered quite a few great JB tracks before I found Your Bright Baby Blues.

    The Eagles being brilliant without singing a note. Felder particularly great on free and easy, acoustic slide. I'm not 100% sure but it could be Davis Lindley, rather than Bernie on pedal Steel.

    A youtuber that I'm subscribed to has uploaded this video of Don Felder playing Tequila Sunrise in June 2014. It's audio only.

    Is Don lip-synching here or is there someone else singing the lead vocal part with him? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ef-m3jL5qs

    There are a few places where we still hear the note when he has already moved away from the mike.

    At 2:39 mark, when we hear "what kind of love have you got?" his mouth seems to be doing something else. And the word "got" lingers when he has obviously stopped singing. At 3:15 mark he moves away from the mike, but it doesn't change the volume of the word "heart".

    But then there are moments where it looks like he sings live, because his phrasing seems spontaneous - there would be an awful lot to remember if it was pre-recorded! The "got" at 3:30 mark for example looks real.

    His singing sounds very compressed. Perhaps that's why we hear his voice as loudly even when he has moved away from the mike?

    EDIT:

    I have learned since writing this post that Auto-Tune can maintain the volume of a note and increase the sustain.

    He must be lip-syncing.

    It seems like most live acts these days (except the Eagles) have a backing track that they sing over - so, it's probably both. He is singing, and there is a track of him singing as well. The usual excuse is "I'm dancing strenuously for 2 1/2 hours, I need to bolster my voice, but I do sing live." Even on "live" shows like SNL they do this, and think Superbowl halftime performances - and yes, they do memorize the backing track down to the note.

    Yes, maybe he does both, although I must admit I only hear one vocal. I compared these three performances, which according to the description are from different dates. I went through them line by line, and the lead vocal parts are definitely identical - phrasing and all.

    There's are 100% identical too in terms of the lead vocal:

    I've been listening to some of Don's live performances lately and been surprised how great his singing sounds. This would certainly explain it! Of course it is possible to sing things exactly the same way all the time, but...

    EDIT:

    Here at 1:05 mark, at the end of the first chorus he says something barely audible, so his mic is definitely coming out of the PA, although not as loud as the pre-recorded vocal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8pJNQADIiY

    I guess the pre-recorded vocal track was autotuned. Not that lip-synching or duetting with a pre-recorded vocal is a big issue in Don's case, since it's not his voice that brings people to his concerts anyway. And having said all this, I do like his voice.
