Tribute to Glenn Frey: "Hotel California"

Frey co-wrote this song with Don Henley and guitarist Don Felder, who, with new member Joe Walsh, shares one of the epic guitar solos of all-time at the end of the classic song.

"Hotel California" went to #1, the Eagles' fourth #1 in six releases.  It also won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year and has sold over two million copies and has helped the album to 16 million in sales in the U.S. and 32 million worldwide.  

As of right now, "Hotel California" is The #15 Song of the Rock Era*.  As often happens, the death of a musician sparks varying surges in popularity, airplay and sales.  Will it be enough to boost "Hotel California" to #1?  Probably not, but we expect a big boost in the song.
