Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder says that due to some pretty brutal legal battles earlier in the decade, his relationship with the still-active member of the Eagles in essentially nil. Felder was fired from the Eagles in 2001 following monetary disputes with Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Eagles manager Irving Azoff. The case was settled out of court the following year.

Felder spoke with Guitar World magazine, and explained that his relationship with the band’s early former members is still going strong: “I have great relationships with Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner. I saw Randy about two months ago, and I just called Bernie on his birthday. Randy was a dear friend of mine during the Eagles and has remained so. Everybody else — Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit, and Joe Walsh. . . as much as I love Joe and I think the world of him as a player and a person, we have little to no direct contact.”

Felder went on to explain how estranged things are between him and his former bandmates, revealing, “Every time I communicate with them or try to reach out, the only return communication I get is from their attorney. It’s sad but that’s the reality.”

Don Felder will next perform on February 21st, 22nd, and 23rd in Niagara Falls, Ontario at the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort.
