Don Felder meet & greet

Post by Cozmik » February 8th, 2020, 1:16 pm

Last night former Eagle guitarist Don Felder (the composer of "Hotel California") played at Jergel's, a club that's about a 5 minute drive from my house. I thought the price for a meet and greet was pretty reasonable compared to many meet and greets so I decided to go for it.

I got there, had some dinner and when 7:30 rolled around I went to the meet and greet registration where they led us upstairs to a room where he waited to greet everyone individually and get their photo taken with him. The email I got sent earlier in the week said he would sign but couldn't sign guitars or Eagles items which might account for me not seeing anybody else bringing anything to sign.

I grabbed my picture and asked him to sign an 8x10. He was happy to do it and pulled out a black sharpie. Fortunately, I had the foresight to bring a silver sharpie as the picture background was fairly dark. He was extremely nice and after grabbing my bag of swag (a tote bag, pre-signed poster and a t-shirt, I went back to my seat and watched his show which was full of Eagle's songs, a Stevie Ray Vaughn cover, a couple from his recent solo albums and the title song from the soundtrack of the 80's R-rated animated sci-fi anthology movie "Heavy Metal".

Very cool, loved his work with the Eagles. He really came across as genuine and still laments not being part of the band.
