Don Felder is an American rock ‘n’ roll icon, so how appropriate is it that his new studio album is titled just that?
American Rock ‘n’ Roll was released on Friday, and, well, it’s a rock and roll record. There are riffs, there’s groove, there’s melody, and there are some serious special guests on the record, which was previewed in recent weeks with the title track, featuring Slash and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers:
And, later, “Rock You,” featuring Sammy Hagar, Bob Weir and Joe Satriani:
This is rock music at its most unapologetic — which is precisely what Felder, who of course is known for many things, among them contributing to the conception of Eagles‘ classic hit “Hotel California.”
Other guests on the record include Richie Sambora, Orianthi, Peter Frampton, Mick Fleetwood, David Paich and Steve Porcaro of Toto, Alex Lifeson of Rush and more. Pretty exhausting list, right?
