The trial of three men arrested in July of ‘20, charged with attempting to sell pages of hand-written lyrics to songs from the Eagles’ “Hotel California” album (and allegedly lying about the origins of the ownership) began Wednesday in New York Supreme Court.

Craig Inciardi, former curator at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Glenn Horowitz, a dealer of high-end rare books, and Edward Kosinski, owner of a memorabilia business, are accused of trying to “possess, transport, store, and sell such manuscripts.”

All three claim they are innocent. 

“Hotel California,” the Eagles (pictured above) fifth studio album, has been certified 26× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in the U.S. and has sold over 32 million units worldwide.
