"They stab it with their steeley knives ..." refers to a cocaine party by people who wish they weren't addicts. One of the most entertaining and interesting songs by The Eagles. The most absurd one involved "THC" and the active ingredient in marijuana. Just goes to show you anyone can become a physician just by putting "MD" after your name.So many different interpretations of the song are the cause overlooking what the artists say. Listen to what Felder et al have to say regarding the song/album. How many mothers are just overjoyed at their son/daughter being in the medical field?I think that these influences appeared on the single 'One Of These Nights' in 1975.
CSNY reunion brought them two guitar-sounds because CSNY had two guitarist-Neil Young and Stephen Stills. So they copied CSNY and had two guitarists-Don Felder and Joe Walsh instead of Bernie Leadon in 1975. To be continued Hi Music lovers, As I told you my last review, I think this song 'Hotel California' has nothing to do with any materials or heroin addiction in those days.
I think it was about a story influenced by the horror films like 'Exorcist' in 1973 or 'Race With The Devil' in 1975.
It must be a great chance to use the last scene like 'Easy Rider' OR 'Race With The Devil' that make people shock or think! Please check the key words on the lyrics 'Hotel California'.
(The last scene of Both films were the same) Because the music that Another Don Felder wrote was a long, mysterious or dynamic song. You could find many words that show the ideas of the horror or occult filmes in those days.
Addiction to marijuana is something I've never ever seen, and the amount of weed that my friends and I smoked in our youth is greater than what some of you weigh.
So those that speak of withdrawal do not have any personal experience whatsoever.All members of the Eagles must have watched this film because they had respected him since 'Ease Rider' because it was a great AND impressive film. The last scene of this film 'Race With The Devil' was the same the last phrase of the lyrics of the 'Hotel California', which goes like this: You can check any time you like, but you can't never leave: just the same last scene.I think when Don Henley got the idea of the music of 'Hotel California' from another Don: Don Felder, he must have thought 'Wow!Because on this song, the music was written first, (not lyrics), written by Don Felder, and another Don wrote the lyrics second. I think another Don, Don Henley, followed the music of this song that Don Felder wrote and wrote the lyrics of the song.Because the music that Don Felder wrote was not a typical rock or pop song in the US.One was that Eric Clapton came back from the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, with releasing the album '461 Occean Boulvoard' in 1974. I think these two big event was a big influence for all the members of the Eagles.
