Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder has expressed his disappointment after he was left out of the Grammy Awards tribute to late band co-founder Glenn Frey.

Rockers Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Joe Walsh, and Tim Schmidt reunited for the special occasion at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Monday night, teaming up with Jackson Browne to pay homage to Frey with a rendition of their 1972 hit Take It Easy.

Felder took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to reflect on the get-together, making it clear he would have liked to have received an invitation - despite filing suit against Frey and Henley after he was fired from the group in 2001.



Felder sued his old bandmates for wrongful termination after his axe, but they hit back, accusing him of breach of contract after attempting to sell the rights to a tell-all book.

The trio was subsequently able to settle the dispute out of court for an undisclosed sum in 2002.

Frey died on January 18, aged 67.
