Whenever we hear Eagles, we automatically associate it with “Hotel California”. The Eagles have been dubbed as one of the best-selling bands of the world, having sold more than a hundred million albums worldwide. The albums Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) and Hotel California have been the band’s most critically acclaimed, and have been ranked on the top of the best-selling physical albums in the United States in the 20th century.


Success of “Hotel California”

Hotel California” is considered to be the band’s greatest masterpiece, and for a multitude of reasons, the most noticeable one being the epic guitar solo that lasts an eternity, and we wouldn’t even mind! Musical genius Joe Walsh is credited for the hypnotic guitar solo that became the trademark of the song. The lyrics have also been written in way that the listener had the freedom to interpret the song the way they want. This mystifying concoction of a song paid off handsomely, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for over a week, on February 26, 1977. Consequently, the band bagged the 1977 Grammy Award for Record of The Year with the track, at 1978’s 20th Grammy Awards. This onset of popularity is the reason why it is one of the most covered songs in the world, with various artists paying homage to the greatness, or taking it on with their own spin.

Speaking of covers, Facebook has been a huge platform for amateur musicians seeking to break through the public. With its vast reach, being viral is such an easy feat given you have the talent to back it up for.

The musician gave his own flair to the song, playing multiple scales and seemingly toying with his runs. Click on the video and see for yourself now!
