It gave insight to not only the Eagles and their journey, but shined the spotlight on the quietest of Eagles.
His voice is just humdrum. He makes every quote sound very mundane instead of a conversation. He made the book hard to listen to as he is very monotone.
Thank you Mr. Felder for pulling back the curtain not only on your own life, but that of the Eagles. I was impressed that Felder's musical childhood was surrounded by so many of the Rock n Roll giants that the 70's would produce. If California was the springboard to so many 70's rockers, then Gainesville florida must have been the ladder to get there.
I find myself most disappointed at the actions of Henley and Fry. And in some cases I was disappointed in Felder for just "going along". Being a pacifist in such a situation rarely leads to anything good. As far as the timeline, its interesting to note that for myself, a fan of the Eagles since childhood, my interest in the band wained about the time that they let Mr. Felder go. The last Eagles Album really only had one good song, and no good ones.
And lastly as a native of Amarillo, TX and a musician in that area, It was great to hear more about JD Souther who hailed from that town and drove so much of the Eagles. Good Read!
