Legendary former lead guitarist and songwriter of the Eagles, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee DON FELDER is releasing today his highly anticipated all-new album “American Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
The album features some of the biggest names in music including Sammy Hagar, Slash, Richie Sambora, Orianthi, Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Mick Fleetwood, Chad Smith, Bob Weir, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Alex Lifeson and more.
Mixed & Mastered by ’80s gurus Bob Clearmountain and Bernie Grundman, the new LP comprises what Classic Rock is all about.

What’ll make fans even happier is learning that ‘American Rock ‘N’ Roll’ is as good or better than any music Don Felder has ever made. He seems to be that rare artist who’s getting better with the passage of time.
He logged in 27 years with the Eagles, co-wrote “Hotel California,” “Victim of Love” and “Those Shoes” and worked with other important artists including The Bee Gees, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Boz Scaggs, Warren Zevon, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and more.

‘American Rock ‘N’ Roll’ is Don Felder’s third solo effort and arguably the strongest of the three.
Felder produced the album himself and, at this stage, is more than able to articulate his own vision. Felder’s deep songwriting and guitar skills maintain center stage and the set listens like a real album, not just a batch of singles.

The record opens with the lead single and title track “American Rock ‘N’ Roll,” which features stellar performances from Slash, Mick Fleetwood, and Chad Smith of Chickenfoot & RHCP. The song is a tribute to the icons of the classic rock era, artists who helped to define the sound of American music in the late 20th Century.
“Hearts On Fire” is a gleefully funky rock song with a huge hook that’ll instantly become stuck in your ear. “Limelight” is a great mid-tempo shuffle that features intertwined guitar solos from Richie Sambora and Orianthi, two players who can heat up any house in the world.

“Rock You” is a powerful, hard rock stadium-shaking kind of song that shows Felder still has plenty of gas in the tank. Joe Satriani rocks some solos on it as only he can, and we are also treated to some lead vocals by Sammy Hagar and backups by Bob Weir.
Felder can still write ballads like nobody’s business and does exactly that on “The Way Things Have To Be.” Peter Frampton contributes guitar and backup vocals and Leah Felder sings on the track, as well.
Alex Lifeson drops guitar licks on “Charmed” to add some Canadian content to the proceedings and does his usual amazing job.

It’s impressive to hear how great this crew sounds. Felder and every musician on this record can deliver the goods live and on two-inch tape, which isn’t something to take for granted in our computer age.
Felder is one of the great guitarists / singer / songwriters of our age and the combination of his skills and the strength of the other players make ‘American Rock ‘N’ Roll’ a perfect thing, an experience that anyone who cares about the core of rock music needs to have.
