I thought it sounded like all the vocals had been re-recorded after the fact. Maybe not, but it sure sounds that way to me. Excellent guitar tones; came off as a very good show-tune style super-vanilla Eagles Tribute Band to me. I don't care, just an observation.
1. I can just see the the smoke coming out of Frey's ears.
2. Looks like the bass player was also hired as security in case Frey shows up drunk and hassles the band. PED testing isn't required.
3. Musically no complaints, harmonies work, lead vocal is just what you would expect. He does a good job but it's not the original vocal so it will always sound a little wack.
4. Loved the Les Paul look.
5. I'm sure it sounded different live but it really had no energy.
But professional and I would give anything to be that good ( just to put it in perspective)
Without a doubt. Felder's lead vocal seems to have been entirely recorded after the fact...it sounds good but completely unnatural. The BGV's sound like a combination of after-the-fact studio recordings and autotuned live material.
Great guitar tones, both Felder's LP tone and the other guy with the Tele.
Totally agree. Nothing against Felder, but it left me cold.
I watched it last night and felt it sounded almost too good to be true. TGP-approved guitars for the whole show, including Tommy Shaw's.
I have no idea if the vocals were redone, but if you're in the Eagles, your live vocal chops have to be way up there. I didn't notice any obvious overdubs with the guitars. I thought it was a good show.
Vocals def re-done.
Regarding over-dubs--watch the end of Already Gone--the Tele guy is "solo-ing" while Felder is but someone else is playing rhythm behind them and you don't hear the Tele guy playing his solo.
I just joined an Eagles tribute (haven't started working yet) but this is apropos for what I need to be listening to and researching. Guitars sounded KILLER (both). I feel the lead was just different (lighter) because that is Felder's voice. Background vocals definitely sounded "padded" after the fact. I sure as hell hope so because those were dead on, a little too good / not completely natural sounding IMHO. I bet live the vocals are pretty damn close though, they have to be.
That's not much different than a usual Eagles performance. They've never really been showman. Sounded good, loved Felder's tone and I hope Frey was mad.
Not a huge fan of the Eagles except for a few songs (this being one). But I've always dug this guy's playing.
If you are going to do Eagles songs you should be using tracks.
If Felder does it you would be foolish not to.
Very very difficult to pull those harmonies off without help.
Why kill yourself when all the big names are doing it?
I enjoyed it but yeah a lot of bands these days have backing tracks and recorded vocals but all in all I thought it was a good show,just think it was unnecessary to tell the history of each tune,people don't care just play...
Thought it was surprisingly good, esp. vocals -- maybe they were re-recorded or backing tracks, wouldn't surprise me.
If it pisses off Henley & Frey, so be it. None of them (Felder included) come off very well personally IMO ...
Anything that irritates Glenn Frey is OK in my book.
I'm with you, that's why I stay home and listen to the records.
I doubt he gives two hoots about what Felder is doing.
Felder is playing rinky-dink gigs compared to the Eagles.
Frey won and is still in the band. Felder is playing these small gigs with a bunch of nobodies and using tracks.
So wait... is Felder out of the Eagles now, officially?
IMO that song was always Bernies from the guitar standpoint. He just nailed it, and the eagles haven't been able to duplicate his sound since. Felder's band fares no better here.
