SLASH, SAMMY HAGAR, JOE SATRIANI Among Guests On New DON FELDER Solo Album, 'American Rock 'N' Roll'

According to Rolling Stone, Slash (GUNS N' ROSES), Sammy Hagar (VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT), Joe Satriani (CHICKENFOOT), Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, CHICKENFOOT) and Mick Fleetwood (FLEETWOOD MAC) are among the musicians who guest on "American Rock 'N' Roll", the upcoming solo album from former EAGLES guitarist Don Felder.

Slash plays on the title track (hear audio below), which traces the history of rock from the days of Woodstock and Jimi Hendrix to GUNS N' ROSES and the present day. "Slash lives really close to me," says Felder. "He came over, brought his guitar, plugged into one of my amps and we traded off on some solos. He actually plays on the part of the song that mentions GUNS N' ROSES by name." Hagar makes an appearance in "Rock You", which also features Satriani on guitar.

The follow-up to 2012's "Road To Forever", "American Rock 'N' Roll" will be released on April 5 via Felder's new record label, BMG.

"It's such a wonderful feeling to be a new member of the BMG family," Felder said in a statement. "They are an incredible company run by great people. I'm so excited and happy to be part of this amazing group and work side by side on my new album with them."

Added BMG executive John Loeffler: "Don Felder is one of music's true icons and we couldn't be happier he's chosen to work alongside BMG on his new album. His voice and musicianship are second to none and he's put together a real rock and roll gem full of hooks and melodies that stick with you for days. This is going to be a real favorite for all rock fans."

Felder joined the EAGLES in 1974 and remained in the group until its 1980 breakup. He was in the lineup when the band reunited in 1994, but was terminated in 2001 after reportedly questioning the split of the financial pie. He later sued for wrongful termination and breach of contract and fiduciary duty (the suit was settled out of court years later). Felder's no-holds-barred autobiography, "Heaven And Hell: My Life In The Eagles (1974-2001)", set back relations with his former bandmates even further.
