Don Felder’s masterful new album "Road to Forever" - remarkably, only the influential guitarist and songwriter’s second solo album, and first since 1983 — features twelve rousing, guitar-driven original tracks anchored firmly in the classic LA-rock sound he perfected as guitarist for the Eagles for 27 years.
Filled with songs that reflect on life, love's gains and losses, and redemption, the album is a return to center stage for the celebrated musician. Road to Forever was conceived during a long period of introspection that also resulted in his hit book "Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001)."
After his acrimonious separation from the Eagles and the dissolution of his 29-year marriage, Felder was inspired to "write out the stories of my life as songs. After I collected myself, I found I needed to go out and play music again, and that's how I began recording the album. In the process, I found out who I really am - I had to find out what happened when I almost lost it all. "
Felder wrote or co-wrote all the songs and performs guitar and lead vocals on the set, which boasts a long list of iconic guest performers -- long-time cohorts and friends including: David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills; Steve Lukather, David Paich and Steve Porcaro of Toto; Randy Jackson; Tommy Shaw and others. Produced by Felder along with Robin DiMaggio (Paul Simon, Steve Vai), "Road to Forever" will be released October 9 on Rocket Science Ventures.
