    If I remember correctly, the accident is also detailed in To The Limit. What an awful experience for everyone.

    Here's a little blurb about Hotel California from one of my Google Alerts today:
    ----------------

    In 1977, the song "Hotel California" was released as a single, and was at the top of Billboard's Hot 100 for one week in May of that year.

    Accolades the song has received include being listed by Rolling Stone as the 48th greatest song of all time and one of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's list of 500 Songs which Shaped Rock'n'Roll. Its guitar solo is listed by Guitar Magazine as the 8th greatest guitar solo of all-time.


    ---------------------------
    Hard to believe that it only topped the Hot 100 list for ONE WEEK, isn't it? Today it is revered as a rock masterpiece, a classic rock staple that is played over & over again, 365 days a year, on rock stations everywhere.

    It is rather hard to believe that the song was only No. 1 for one week. I wonder if maybe it was because the single didn't sell that well? Everyone bought the album instead of the single.

    You have a point here, Dreamer. That reminds me of Elvis Presley's version of "Blue Suede Shoes". It's on record that even though Elvis' version is far better known than the original by its composer, Carl Perkins, the latter's version actually went to no. 2 on the charts - a feat that Elvis' didn't achieve. However, Elvis' version was the opening track of his debut album, "Elvis Presley", in 1956, and the album was a smash hit and a million seller. It can be deduced that most people bought the album rather than the single, so therefore the single didn't do as well. It was probably a similar scenario with "Hotel California".

    Thanks for the snippet, DF!
