Whether it was a question about the crew or the artwork or whatever we were doing, I kind of had a ball-gag shoved in my mouth and a check shoved in my hand, he maintains. They interpreted it as a challenge to their authority, which was not the intent at all for me to do. It was just simply trying to make certain I wasnt getting screwed.
After being dumped, Felder sued the band, settling out of court prior to Heaven and Hells release. Still, he insists that the book was more about personal catharsis than score-settling. I hope I dont sound too negative, he says, because I still have a lot of fond memories.
Felder drops by the Highlands Ranch Tattered Cover, 9315 Dorchester Street, at 7:30 p.m. The event is free, but Felder will only autograph books, not memorabilia. Get details at 303-470-7050 or www.tatteredcover.com and read a massive Felder Q&A at blogs.westword.com/latestword.
