Don Felder Tributes Former Eagles Bandmate Glenn Frey

(Gibson) Glenn Frey and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder famously had their differences, but in a prepared statement, Felder has put aside their long-standing frictions.

"Glenn was the one who invited me to join the Eagles in 1974 and it turned out to be a gift of a lifetime to have spent so many years working side by side with him," writes Felder. "He was funny, strong, and generous. At times it felt like we were brothers and at other times, like brothers, we disagreed.

"Despite our struggles and difficult moments together we managed to create some magical songs, recordings and live show. His charisma on stage was felt and loved by millions of people all over the world."

Felder, who was dismissed from the band in 2001, says he now regrets that the chance to patch things up has passed. "I have many wonderful memories of those years and the many miles I travelled with Glenn, filled with laughter, song, parties, hugs and brotherly bonds. Glenn was the James Dean of the band."
