The trouble is, his former bandmates Don Henley and Glenn Frey had successfully sued Felder about the book's content, which led Hyperion, the book's erstwhile publisher, to drop the potentially steamy tome. But fans of musical muckraking need not fret: Though the legal Eagles' wingspan is broad, it doesn't quite reach across the Atlantic, where, according to the New York Post's Page Six column, the U.K.-based Orion Publishing Group has opted to print the tell-all, titled 'Heaven and Hell: My Life as an Eagle.'
Not only will Felder's exposé offer forth stories detailing what promise to be cocaine-fueled and groupie-populated bacchanals, 'Heaven and Hell' will also delve into alleged financial imbalances within the group. Felder, who was fired from the Eagles in 2001, subsequently took his former mates to court that year, charging that Henley and Frey unfairly demanded a greater cut of the band's considerable profits than he and the others. Several U.S. publishers are said to willing to pick up the book, which, in the Internet Age, will already have had its juiciest bits slathered all over the Web lickety-split.
