Don Felder - Airborne

In 1974, Felder was invited to join the Eagles. A Year later his friend Joe Walsh came also to the Eagles as replacement for Bernie Leadon, together they added a harder edge to the Eagles musical sound. The band started moving away from their earlier country based rock style. On the band's fourth album,One of these Nights, Felder sang lead vocal on the song Visions which he co-wrote with Don Henley, and was the only Eagles song that Felder ever sang lead vocal on.
In 1983, he released a rock and roll album titled Airborne which to date remains his only solo LP. He contributed the songs Heavy Metal (Takin' A Ride) and All of You to the 1981 film Heavy Metal. In 1994, the Eagles regrouped for a concert aired on MTV, which resulted in the album Hell Freezes Over. Felder continued as a member of the Eagles through their 1999–2000 New Year's concerts. In 2001, Don was wrongful fired from the Eagles.
The Felder cuts from Heavy Metal Film are also included.
