NEW YORK (AP) — Don Felder had always hoped he and Glenn Frey would speak again. Felder says he felt “unbelievable sorrow” hearing the news of Frey’s death on Monday. Felder says Frey was “the leader and everybody looked up to him.” Felder and Frey famously fought on stage during The Eagles show in Long Beach, California, in 1980 that led to the breakup of the band. They regrouped in 1994, but Felder was forced out of the band in 2001. Felder says in spite of their difference, he remembers Frey most for the music they made together and for the “laughter and the parties.” Felder says he has not been in contact for years with Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh or Timothy B. Schmit, but Randy Meisner called him when Frey died. Felder says Meisner was in tears.
