The Eagles are the bestselling, and arguably the tightest-lipped, American group ever. Now band member and guitarist Don Felder finally breaks the Eagles years of public silence to take fans behind the scenes. He shares every part of the bands wild ride, from the pressure-packed recording studios and trashed hotel rooms to the tension-filled courtrooms, and from the joy of writing powerful new songs to the magic of performing in huge arenas packed with roaring fans.

I can't tell you which is better: toe watch the documentary film first or listen to this autobiography first.
Suffice to say, both should be experienced.
Felder's story is fascinating as the counterpoint to Henley and Frye's take on the history of MY favorite group of all time.
would have been better with a different narrator
not sure. His speaking voice dragged on. Reminds me of a lame schoolmaster reading.
maybe from Don Henley
satisfied my curiosity
Don Felder of course....
He found his voice in court.
Don found love again.
Story well told....
I'm a big eagles fan , loved most of the stories and content. Don Fingers Felder does paint himself as person where hes a goody two shoes and it's everyone else's fault and found myself saying come on give me A break. I have listened to other rock and roll books, Heart, Steve Tyler, graham Nash , rod Stewart . All range from good to very good. On this book I would say Don't bother. Listening to the person tell this story in a whiney monotone voice makes you want to shut the story off after 2 minutes ...it doesn't get any better as the book goes on either. Save yourself the money and go to the local toy store, find a Whiney little spoiled brat and record him complaining about the toy his mother wouldn't buy him, listen to the tape over and over. It will sound better than this book.
Then read all the other reviews of this book from other people. ALL rate the storyteller performance HORRIBLE.
NO not if they use the same
He was HORRIBLE <- Please use 18 pt font here, bold and underline.
If Don Felder was in it yes , if the narrrator said 1 word in the movie,no.
Don Felder has many fans, this book of BAD storytelling will continue to haunt him for the rest of his life because oflinking the Whiney story teller to Don.
Don should take some of his hard earned /saved money and redo this recording it would be money well spent.
