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.

This book confirms all those rumors of discord that always swirled around The Eagles. It is a fascinating story of growing and outgrowing.
I listen to audio books in the car and with this one I found myself sitting in the driveway at home, unable to stop listening!
Warning: After you finish this book you may be struck with an overwhelming desire to go to your iTunes and delete all the solo Don Henley stuff!
Great story! Very hard to turn off. I was completely engrossed! I saw a documentary on cable about the Eagles a couple of months ago so when i stumbled across this audiobook i had to give it a listen. I'm no hard core Eagles fan either, its just a great story and the narration was good as well. Hard to find an audiobook that keeps me as interested as this one. Great job, Fingers!
My 63 years of activities have been varied: Professional musician, USAF (and Private) pilot, radio personality, Steinway piano salesman, writer, and--above all--fanatical researcher of many subjects. Aviation and the Civil War are only two of them. I fulfilled an ambition to live in and visit all 50 states before I was thirty, and I've traveled many parts of the world. I began reading when I was 3.
Besides Felder's account of the band's career, the inside look at how the music business worked during its heyday.
The description of how the members of arguably the most popular rock band in the world were unable to stand each other offstage, let alone socialize.
I have not listened to Dennis Holland before, and frankly had never heard of him before listening to this book. I don't make as big a deal about narrators as does Audible. As long as they're intelligible and modulate their voices pleasantly, I couldn't care less about this aspect of my purchases.
No extreme reaction. I've read a great many rock biographies, and there are always similarities among them. At least this one didn't sound like a fan-zine.
A very good listening experience, highly informative (if also highly subjective), and written with warmth and humor.
satisfied my curiosity
Don Felder of course....
He found his voice in court.
Don found love again.
Story well told....
