(Classic Rock) Former Eagles members Don Felder, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner won't be honored along with their former bandmates at this year's John F Kennedy Center For Performing Arts ceremony.

It was announced in June that the Eagles would receive recognition for their contribution to American culture through the arts at the event on December 4. But despite an online petition garnering more than 10,000 supporters, the trio won't attend the event.

Brandon Butler, who organized the public drive, says in a statement: "Unfortunately, it is with great disappointment that I inform everyone that the Kennedy Center will not include Don Felder, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner to be honored."

He also published the response from the president of the Kennedy Center, Deborah Rutter, which reads: "The Kennedy Center consulted with the Eagles and through that discussion, it was determined that the four band members who 'carried the torch' - Don Henley, the late Glenn Frey, Timothy B. Schmit, and Joe Walsh - will be awarded the honors." Read more here.
