Don Felder Premieres New "American Rock ‘N’ Roll" Performance Video

Like all of us, Don Felder has been spending a lot of time at home in recent months.

The former Eagles guitarist had spent much of last year, and a decent chunk of early 2020, touring in support of American Rock ’n’ Roll, a star-studded, high-flying and hard-rockin' solo album in which he celebrates the titular music, with help from the likes of Slash, Peter Frampton, Richie Sambora, Joe Satriani, Alex Lifeson, Sammy Hagar and more.

Felder recently gathered his band - Timothy Drury on keyboards, Bruce Atkinson on bass, David Myhre on guitar and Chris Ralles on drums - to put together a killer performance video, from quarantine, of the album's title track. You can check it out above. 

“The song is like a musical documentary,” Felder told GP about "American Rock ‘N’ Roll" last year. 

“It’s me remembering all the things that have gotten me excited about this music, from seeing Elvis Presley on television to hearing B.B. King on the radio to being at Woodstock and watching Hendrix and Santana and Janis Joplin and my friends Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young."
