Once again, the Eagles are going to court over what they are saying is an infringement upon their trademarks. They’ve filed a lawsuit in a U.S. District Court against the Todos Santos hotel in Baja California Sur, Mexico, whom they claim are billing the property as the “Hotel California” without permission from the band.
Reuters reports that the Todos Santos, which opened as the Hotel California in 1950 and went through a number of name changes until the current owners restored the name in 2001, have been marketing their property as if to suggest the band is connected to it. This includes playing Eagles songs over the PA system, selling t-shirts that call the hotel “legendary” — as if to suggest that it was the inspiration for the song — and a website URL of hotelcaliforniabaja.com. It is unknown what their checkout time is or the quality of their wine list.

Glenn Frey‘s lingering stomach problems have nixed a ceremony where the Eagles

Guitarist and founding member of the Eagles, Glenn Frey, passed away yesterday January 18th after complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. He was 67. His health was fainting and he had a surgery last November that actually caused the band to cancel their Kennedy Center Honors appearance in December. Frey wrote and sung some of the band’s greatest hits like “Take It Easy”, “Tequila Sunrise”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “Heartache Tonight” and “Hotel California” of course, while he won six Grammy awards with the band. After the Eagles broke up in 1980 he embarked in a successful solo career with most notable hits “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong To The City”. He also appeared on “Miami Vice”. RIP Glenn Frey

SON REPLACES LATE FATHER

Published in News

Glenn Frey‘s son Deacon is apparently joining the Eagles when they play the Classic East and Classic West music festivals this summer.
In an interview with Dallas radio station KTCK, Don Henley confirmed that Frey’s son will replace his late father when the reunited Eagles take the stage at the two festivals in July. Henley had earlier suggested that Deacon Frey would be part of the band, but then said he wouldn’t.

Howard Kaufman, whose lengthy career in artist management saw work with such stars as the Eagles, Stevie Nicks, Aerosmith and Def Leppard, has died at the age of 79. As of now, the cause of death is unknown, although his occasional business partner, Irving Azoff, suggested that he had been ill for some time.
