Former Eagles member Don Felder found himself entangled in a prolonged and intricate dispute over finances and control within the band. Departing in 2001, he confronted significant financial and legal challenges regarding the handling of the band’s money and decisions, particularly with Don Henley and Glenn Frey. Despite a lawsuit settlement aimed at maintaining confidentiality, Felder continued to voice his perspective.
While bound by the terms of the settlement, the musician refrained from openly discussing the lawsuit’s specifics. Nevertheless, he penned a book titled ‘Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles (1974-2001),’ shedding light on his time with the band. In a 2008 interview with Westword, he delved into the details.
