Music bands are like marriages -- sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.

That is what American musician and songwriter Don Felder said Monday on "First Look with Scott Cox" when asked about the disintegration of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time.

"You go through a honeymoon period when everything is delightful but then things go wrong," Felder said. "Human relationships are the most difficult to deal with in life."

Felder was a member of The Eagles for 27 years, creating the band's biggest hit, "Hotel California." After leaving the group, Felder became a New York Times bestselling author with his confessional memoir "Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles."

He will perform at 8 p.m. Valentine's Day at the Fox Theater.

Simulcast host Scott Cox asked Felder how many guitars he owns, and the answer left Cox in shock.

"I have about 300 guitars and I'm still not sure which ones I'll be bringing to Bakersfield," Felder said.
