  • Who was the greatest Eagles guitarist?

    Felder is my man.

    Felder all the way.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Joe and he's a Goofball after my own heart...but I have to give Felder the props here.

      Bernie Leadon. The others are pretenders compared to him.

          Joe Walsh, despite the soul crushing effect that playing in The Eagles has.

              Best Eagles guitarist? Easy.

              Felder.
              (Tubefox) I can't decide if I like it. I mean, I'm a fan of obscenely pointy guitars but...It looks like a cross between a flying V, a horseshoe, a viking axe, and an anorexic teenage girl.

                  I love Joe Walsh, man. I can't vote against him, so I gotta vote for him.

                      I won't say he's the greatest, but when I saw the Eagles very early in their career (opening for Yes) Bernie Leadon blew us all away when he rocked the house on electric slide banjo through a distortion pedal. That stood out in my memory more than anything from their set that night.

                        I'm guessing most of those voting for Walsh (sigh...) or Felder must not have even heard of - much less heard - either of the first two albums. The Eagles-sans-Bernie, starting with On The Border, became the ultimate sellout-pop band. Those first two albums were priceless though.

                        It's kind of ironic that the Eagles are probably best known for Hotel California.

                          So? Why can't people like both era's of music? Why can't I like "Hotel California" and "The Eagles"? Why can't I dig "Take it Easy" (from their first album) and also "I Can't Tell You Why" from The Long Run? One of the highest selling albums of all time was their first Greatest Hits album which had a ton of material from their first two albums that you laud so much...so plenty of people have heard their music with Bernie.

                          "Take It Easy"
                          "Witchy Woman"
                          "Peaceful Easy Feeling"
                          "Desperado"
                          "Tequila Sunrise"

                          All of the above were from the first two albums. I'm sure everyone here has heard these before...yet they still voted for Felder. Hmmm...

                          Hate to break it to you, but when they put out that first album and offered it for sale to everyone, they sold out then. They sold out when they were simply Linda Ronstadt's back-up band. When they were paid for what they did...they sold out.

                          Please understand, "selling out" isn't a bad thing. It just means they're getting paid to do what they do. Just because you and I don't get paid that much for music doesn't mean we wouldn't grab for that brass ring if it was dangled in front of us. If they paid me like 60K a year to play for Shakira you bet your ass I would sell out...in a heart beat.

                            Eagles playing guitars is yesterdays news. Make way for the rats.



                            He's a very talented musician.

                              I never have the chance to see Bernie Leadon play.

                              I have seen Felder completely blow the rest of the band off the stage in 1995, made Walsh look like some stuffy sideman. That man played like the one who needed the money the most and was having the most fun. A totally electrifying performance and the rest of the band worked hard to keep up.

                              Anyone who saw the more recent Eagles tours without Felder was totally ripped off.
