Success is like a magnet - when things are going according to your plan, everything that comes to you seems to be happening for good, but when a piece starts to crumble, everything starts to become upside down. The notion reminded us of one of the legendary guitarist of all time, Don Felder.

The former Eagle lead guitarist married Susan Pickersgill in 1971. Then, he was active as a guitarist to the mighty Eagle band.

They are blessed with four children; Jesse N. Felder (born on April 6, 1974), Rebecca Felder (born on December 31, 1975), Cody William Felder (born on October 10, 1978), and Leah Jenner (born on November 24, 1982).

Fired and Divorce:

In 2001, Don Felder was fired from the band. And just as we said, everything started to crumble when the big disaster happened; he also had to separate from his wife, Susan. In an interview in 2012 with 'SomeThingElse!', he said:

“When I left the band, in that same 12-month period, I went through a separation and divorce with my wife. So, all of the images that I had adopted and had been wearing for almost 30 years — in a rock band, with a group of people that I considered my friends in the Eagles, being married, a father, family man — all of that was stripped away.”

 The couple got divorced after nearly a three-decade long marriage in 2000. 

His Children!

Among his four children, the one who got into his shoes is his youngest daughter Leah Jenner, @Leah_Jenner, who has become a Musician, Actress, Writer, Composer, and a mother. She got married to Brandon Jenner, @sprandoni, who is also an actor and composer, on May 31, 2012. They welcomed a baby daughter on July 22nd and named her Eva James Jenner.

Besides Leah, her other siblings have not come into the limelight.

Currently, there is no news about Don Felder having an affair or in a relationship with any girlfriend. We think thatDon currently is single.

Don Felder’s Short Bio:

Don Felder was born on September 21, 1947 (68 years old) in Gainesville.  Getting his first guitar at the age of five, he started to explore rock and roll as a self-taught musician. At the age of fifteen, he began his first band. Later, he was called to add slide guitar to the Eagles’ song "Good Day in Hell" and was invited to join the band the following day.

Following his termination from Eagles in 2001, Don filed a lawsuit against his former band members Don Henley and Glenn Frey for treating him as a helping hand throughout their journey. He also sought an undisclosed sum in his lawsuit.

Currently, Don Felder is all set to be inducted into the Musician’s Hall of Fame in Nashville in October 2016. He currently has a jaw-dropping net worth (estimated) of $60 million dollars.
