The Eagles InTheStudio For Christmas Week
Show producer and host Redbeard revisits his conversations with Glenn Frey, Don Henley and Joe Walsh about how the "stories of the dark side of fame ..." would ﬁnd their way onto the 1976 Grammy Award winning Record of the Year. In an early ʻ90s interview with Redbeard, Glenn Frey recalls the period of time leading up to Hotel California.
"I think Henley and I were on a roll. I felt like any time, any day, I could sit down at the piano or pick up the guitar and start playing and he would start making up some lyrics or start singing some melodies. We had a lot going for us at the time and we felt it was time to sorta do another concept album, not a cowboy concept album(like Desperado), but rather the dark side of success, the underbelly of Hollywood and LA and all that stuff. I think, in-fact somebody said, 'dark songs from paradise' was how they described Hotel California. I think that's a pretty good description."InTheStudio is syndicated on over 50 radio stations throughout North America.
EAGLES -Hotel Callifornia/ InTheStudio show will air Christmas week.
