Hotel California – Eagles

Hotel California was the Eagles’ fifth studio album, released on Asylum Records in late 1976. It is the first Eagles album without the appearance of their founding member Bernie Leadon and their first album with guitarist Joe Walsh. It is also the last album featuring original bassist Randy Meisner. The album became the band’s best-selling studio album, with over 15 million copies sold in the U.S. alone and over 30 million copies sold worldwide. The album topped the charts and won the band two Grammy Awards for “Hotel California” and “New Kid in Town.” The album was nominated for Album of the Year in 1976 but lost to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours.
