The rocker was performing solo at the Fox Theatre on Saturday (07Nov15) when he was interrupted by a man as he attempted to introduce his band.
Henley was saluting Steuart Smith, who has been a member of the Eagles since Felder left in 2001, when the fan started heckling the headliner.
"I called him out," Henley tells MLive.com, "but, he wasn't finished. Then, he blurted out, 'Don Felder taught Tom Petty how to play guitar'. I said, 'OK, that's it, you're outta here', and I had security escort him out."
"I did exactly what (Eagles founder) Glenn (Frey) would have wanted me to do in his hometown," he added.
